6 New Personality Disorders Caused by the Internet

Yes, it's Cracked (which I know some of you hate), but it actually contains some pretty astute observations. I've noticed these behaviors for a while, and I think it's interesting that they've finally put names to them.

A fucking top 6 list from Cracked. What, they couldn't shit out 4 more disorders?

They've gotten the troll thing completely, painfully wrong. "Troll" might now be the most abused Internet epithet.

So, um, I generally find Cracked stuff amusing, but... taking a list of disorders and adding an internets-related word? That's kinda lazy.

Yes, indeed, the internet has wrought unspeakable horrors.

For example, Cracked used to be somewhat amusing when it was a print magazine.

Mm, it doesn't address Christopher Columbus-syndrome; i.e. that stupid behaviour of people claiming to be there first, while they're only taking advantage of something already there.

Before I read this, I want to make sure I reference Penny Arcade, and the brilliant M. Gabriel

You know what sucked? Cracked magazine. Seriously, seriously sucked. Like Mad's even-more-square little brother, wholesome & boring.

The website, alas, is even worse.
