I have a problem with CrimeSpace. It’s too much fun: offers up too many thought-provoking forums, too many opportunities to connect with people I already know and like or might have a great deal in common with.
, where I check in every day at least once, CrimeSpace demands I be sharp and on my game. It’s not in my nature to just slouch around and hang out: if something interesting is going on, I want to take part. And there are so many great discussions going on here all the time. So many interesting people it would be fun and even enriching to exchange thoughts with. (Unlike on FaceBook where you can get away with just hucking a virtual snowball and maybe taking a quiz involving pop princesses or 80s hair bands.)
So, OK: I really don’t spend much time here on CrimeSpace. Not as much as I’d like. And even though you might catch me on FaceBook -- gone in 30 secods -- poking someone or swilling virtual drinks, I’d much rather be here, debating minutiae or bandying semantics.
