As much as I dislike using any amount of disk space to host monologues, I have now taken to admit my addiction.

Admitting to it is only the first step. The second step is to assess the potential disastrous effects it might have on one's life, and possibly on others' life. I might lose some hours of sunshine, get deprived of vitamin D, and so on, so yes there are potential undesirable effects. Others might get annoyed by my permanent interference in otherwise family friendly threads and possibly modify their otherwise candid behavior and start randomly killing flies - who knows.

I thougt I would be fine as long as I would still be able read other people's input and decide accordingly whether is was appropriate to add my own two cents to it, instead of feeling such an urge to compensate for my non-existent social life that I had to answer every recent post for the sake of the feeling of interacting. But my input have obviously grown far too verbose and irrelevant to be genuinely motivated by a reasonable call for contributing to the common good.

As someone once quoted: "The average IQ of people typing TLDR in Internet forums is about 64." I definitely need to try and get my IQ back to the average standards or higher, so I will reverse the current situation and read full posts and threads while abstaining from posting myself.

You can record monologues outside in the sunshine and then post them on video hosting site.

You can read books instead. The one I'm reading right now is The TCP/IP Guide:

I am currently reading a book to improve my bird identification skills. Yesterday I definitely identified the Black Redstart who has taken to live nearby the house. It might prove to be the powerful weapon we have been looking for in our fight against ants.

That's a great suggestion, thank you. There will be bird songs all around, so it will already sound much less like a monologue. I am afraid my old hand camera is using 100% proprietary software, though.

There are almost only crows here. When I had a online English lesson with a Jamaican girl, I was surprised to hear a lot of beautiful birds' songs.

According to my book you are a Probosciger aterrimus. Is that correct?

Sounds not so far wrong. According to their habit written on Wikipedia.

Female swallows cheat on partners easily if a male swallow has a longer tail came in the absence of them.

There is a consensus among experts that this is particularly true if the warbling is convincing.

Should laugh, or should cry.
