Aha you most definitely have a point there

But in my defense I don't do parties because I don't do humans or anything that is social in nature. Why would I coop myself up in a closed space full of smoking people speaking too loud because of a background music that is itself too loud and drinking alcohol while casually talking about anything and pretending to care what the other people there think or say?

If you're so anti-social, what exactly are you doing here? Why are you bothering to interact with us? Share your opinions with us? We're just more lousy humans too. If anything, the faceless anonymity of the internet only brings out the less desirable qualities in most people, so the average interaction is hardly improved. 

You had a good point in your previous post but you don't on this one.

Though in your defense you are not trying to make a point, you are asking a question. So I'll answer it.

I consider social behavior the interaction I may have with people in real life. Here on the internet I feel insulated from human contact and being myself a thinker of the free kind, I don't loathe exchanging ideas and hearing what other humans have to say about most topics. In fact the internet is perfect to do just that without actual contact or social commitment of any kind.

Not seeing humans in real life is what makes me anti-social, but not exchanging thoughts would only isolate me intellectually which is not what I want. Same with video games, TV shows and movies. I do enjoy watching and playing those but I don't need to avoid TV shows with human protagonists to be anti-social.

As for the faceless anonymity of the internet, I do agree that it often brings forth the lower traits of human nature but that is precisely what I am going for as it allows me to better see what's wrong with humans and thus be even more justified in my dislike of them.

Perhaps one could say that while I am physically very anti-social, I happen to be intellectually very social. Interesting paradox I must say!
