I will probably never really understand social network sites. One of the biggest draws to computers for me was that you can do fun stuff without interacting with other people.

I was trying to find an anti-social network, but that mostly resulting in finding joke / faux-sociopathic sites. I don't actually hate people (in a broad sense), I just prefer to be by myself most of the time. I was wondering if there was a social networking site for people who don't like people. You know, we could get together and chat about our common disinterest.

Dang, blew another irony meter.

I think I would make an awesome starship pilot. Not the Star Trek kind of pilot, too many people. More like the Larry Niven "there's no room for anybody else" kind of pilot. I'd probably miss the wife and kids though.

You could find a mental health bulletin board and join the people with ADP (Avoidant Personality Disorder). Real ADP isn't about hating people, but a lot of people-haters label themselves ADP and frequent those boards.

Actually, I'm not entirely sure how much of my post was a joke and how much was serious. :-)

On one hand, I feel like I'm missing out on "the next big thing" with the whole social networking thing. On the other, I have no interest at all in laying out my personal life in excruciating detail for random (or even not random) people to see.

Actually, I don't even care that much. The irony of the situation, compounded by actually posting about it, was simply too much to pass up. :-)
