The Opposite of Writers Block II: Kevin Strikes Back

So, my research has led me to hypergraphia - the inability to stop writing. OK, so I don't have it.

Did you know that the Reverend Robert Shields maintained a diary chronicling every 5 minutes of his life from 1972 until 1997. The hypergraphic work contained approximately 38 million words.

I got that from Wikipedia. I'm not like that. So the 'opposite of writers block' is an awful affliction, that obviously effects the lives of the people it touches.

I guess I've just got 'Kevin'.

Now, the question remains on what the name is of someone who pointlessly researches things.
