100 Ways To See If You Are NOT Addicted To The NT

by articuno_neo


Note: The 100 reasons are not real. Read at your own risk, don’t blame me if you get bitten by Addicted NT Fans.

Sometimes, people are addicted (like me) to something, like building a gallery or reading the Neopian Times. But there are people who just turn their face out of disgust from one particular thing. If it is THAT bad, but I sure hope it’s not.

If you agree on 26-50, you are really close to the danger zone. If you just agree on more than 51… Then I am sorry to say that you must not like it, or you are just cheating too get the “Not-so-fanish’ title because it is just so cool.

That was it. Neomail all your questions, fanmail, hatemail or Neomails saying I stole from Sims to Articuno_Neo. Thank you.
