Sometimes I wonder if the people on levels 7 and up have nothing better to do with their time than answer and post comments on this site.What are your thoughts?
I'm a level 7, and I agree with you. When I see 10 posts in a row from someone, I know they are just trying to make it to the next level.....then brag about it. I have never announced my levels; doesn't seem necessary, especially since anyone can see it. I've been a level 7 for a month now, and only post when I feel I really have something to say. That's just me, though.
I wouldn't be too quick to assume anything about why or how people do what they do; or about any other question for that matter. LLOL
I am a bundle of energy and have been compared to the Eveready bunny; moving into my 70s hasn't changed that so i social network and blog whenever i have time and the inclination to do so. At the end of each day, I always have 'stuff' left over, which is fine with me. If getting out on my bike is what i suddenly want to do for an afternoon, which is often the case in Summer, that becomes my passion ans socializing on the internet gets put aside. Scheduling my hours, days, and even years as i've had to do for over 40 years to satisfy my diverse responsibilities ended when i gave up full time work.
The fact that i reached level 7 has nothing to do with any goal or objective, it just happened one day.
Neither do i ever need to satisfy someone else's benchmarks like the 'levels' on this site. I will try and satisfy a friends needs, or even an organization's needs if i commit to them, but social networks don't fall into that category.
