To whom it may concern,
Please accept the following submission for the sixth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-6), whenever you release it:
Cyberphrenia: a personality disorder which presents with a complete dissociation between the subject’s “online” and offline personalities.
This usually (but not uniformly) manifests as a subject developing an “online” personality that manifests as negative ideation ranging from mild impulse-control and conduct disorders to symptoms resembling full-blown sociopathy or narcissistic personality disorder.
Keep me posted.
That is all.
