    Re: IAD Internet Addiction Disorder

    You can be keen and knowledgeable about the internet without having an addiction problem. The addiction disorder is for people who feel discomfort and have mood swings if they cannot be connected to the internet. Also, I don't hear nethead used much nowadays as so many people are confident internet users. I heard it used a lot when the internet was new and many people found it rather daunting.
