Not very. I've always felt like posting angrily and rudely on most forums I go on and usually backed out of doing it. I've slipped up a few times before and got a couple of mod warnings. I was just pissed all the time for no reason.
But lately I've really calmed down. I feel much better since I started exercising and working out.
Whilst I'm always logged in in some form, I'm often doing other things; playing games, running, lifting weights, hanging out with friends, etc. I'll find myself reading through a lot of discussions as well, but I rarely ever post outside of Din and the games section. And the games section is purely for the Land Wars at this point.
I tried to get active in the VCR at one time, too, but the RPs I was participating kinda died. Thinking of getting into writing solo/co-op stories soon, so I'll probably start posting in the Writing section more often. I like to post in the GFX board when I get the urge to make a sig or something, too. I think I made an update a few days ago, actually.
As far as my PM/VM activity goes, I have to say it's pretty average. I can have a conversation with someone but it rarely carries on for more than a day/a couple hours, and if one of us goes offline it usually dies. I don't have the urge to actually reply to VMs or PMs anymore (like, I have a VM from Buu that I need to reply to and some PMs that I'm going to reply to some day). I'm more likely to talk on Skype... but this is sometimes a problem because once I start talking on Skype I can't stop talking. xD
Compared to how active I was, particularly in GCC, last year, though, I have to say that my activity has decreased greatly. I think my post count went up from 800 to around 5,000 from March to October-ish. From then on, I've gotten to whatever this post equals out to. Most of them being in Din.
So yeah, that pretty much describes my activity.

Active, eh? Well, I've spawned innumerable illegitimate children if that answe--
That kind of active...
Well alright then.
I take it by spurts really. I would usually get on ZU during exams--something about discussing an issue in SD with strangers on the internet was oddly relaxing. I would never really stay around long enough to get to know anybody, and the fact that I frequented SD kind of puts you at a disadvantage in that department anyway. While posting during exams in November I think, I got Skype-napped by Great White North, Double A, and Golddron who now make me post about every day. It's quite nice.
Now, admittedly my post count is rather piddling, but in my defense I rarely post less than a full paragraph, and because 50% or so of my posts are in SD, I'd say that those on average amount to about a page apiece. So yeah, I'm active.
I'm mostly only active in a few forums. Sometimes I'll poke my head out to see what else is there, but if I see nothing of interest, I'll go back to the forums. But I seriously do spend like all my time on here. It's scary.

I go on here every day, amazingly enough. I've definitely gotten back into ZU, but I've always had less posts than I'd like. I just have less energy to post everywhere like how I did on my previous forum years ago (I'd gained over 7,000 posts in two and a half years on that last forum).
I think I've become quite active. I log in most days, and I usually post somewhere during my visits.
I wouldn't call it an addiction, though. One of the main reasons for logging in are usually conversations with people.
