Is seeing the same people again and again on zOMG!, and realizing that everyone there recognizes them as a social butterfly there. Knowing that, they're probably always on and don't spend a lot of time outside of the computer. Is that their life? If they leave for a couple months they're back to square one, and I wonder if even a day without zOMG! would affect them a lot more than the consequences of isolating reality. I personally feel really bad seeing people like the ones I'm explaining. Someday, hopefully, they will give more priority to the real world, but I think at this point they'd rather avoid it.
I mean, I only come here probably twice a week when I don't have much homework. If I have plans, I go for them. If reality calls when the computer's right by me, I'll ditch the internet for the task. To all the friends I've deleted through the past year, it's not because I lost interest in them, but it's more of the fact that I've forgotten the memories associated with the friendship. Setting play time as my lowest priority makes it hard for me to mentally tell myself that some people here see me as a friend and set that as an important memory. All in all, I'd rather forget them than make a lasting friendship that I can't commit to. Sorry.
