    Read the title of his thread.

    Netflix is considered mainstream right? After all it's a publicly traded corporation and has deals with literally every major Hollywood studio.

    I watched the movie on Netflix. And I gained a tremendous amount of beneficial information from it.

    Had I decided to take this thread's advice and ignore it, because it was part of the scary, censorship-laden Netflix machine... I would have never seen it.

    But you'll defend that particular film because it was actually good, accuse me of being dumb and claim I misconstrued the OP's words.

    You can't have a constructive debate with somebody if they keep tweaking their position. Whatever floats your boat dude.

    Well, for one, the establishment media does not believe that there could be any negative consequences of habitual porn use.

    Hence the reason why Gary Wilson is so often villanized and attacked by many sexogolists. He is presenting an idea that is very dangerous and challenging to their already established scientific world view.

    The very existence of this forum goes against the mainstream denial of negative consequences from pornography consumption.

    You are being dumb. Or playing dumb, for the sake of argument.

    Please point to anywhere where Laurynas states that 100% of media is evil and should be avoided at all costs.

    I'm patiently waiting for an example...

    Yeah man after a hard day's work I just can't be arsed to face the truth about how my job in corporate america sucks, and how I'm getting nowhere.. I just love to sit in front of my tv and bathe in shows that will get my mind away from it. I've never given a thought about life, society, and what's around me. I wake up in the morning, pack my suitcase, take the subway, clock in, type some pointless numbers into balance sheets, and so on dude.

    I love mass media and I go on twitter all the time to see on how Kimye is doing, so excited about their new baby, aren't you?!?!!?

    Can't wait to get home and munch on this muffin and chocolate chip cookies I got from dunkin donuts to mask everything.

    lol give me a fucking break.

    Don't try what?

    What does whether or not you're American have to do with it?

    You still haven't responded as to why you decided to lash out at me using personal attacks.

    Still waiting for a response...

    That's fantastic Modus! You're the perfect role model for a citizen ;)

    But really folks...keep the tone friendly please. Interesting topic but it's already turning into a huge stinking turd.

    That's a pretty ironic post.

    Oh, I don't know... pretty much the very first image on the OP.

    Capitalism is a perfect economic system that should not be criticized under any circumstances?

    Same thing with Modern America, should it be shielded from any and all criticism?

    How can a diet be applied to everything in life? That doesn't even make sense.

    Never said that either. You seem to be mixing up what you're accusing Laurynas of with what you're claiming I've said.

    I advocate minimizing television consumption, in a similar manner than most everyone on this forum advocates minimizing porn consumption. And I'm the bad person according to Modus ::)

    That's kinda what happens when people start slinging personal attacks as a response to a topic that hits a bit too close to home or makes them uncomfortable. 8)

    I've been meaning to mention something, but since most of the time it was in your journal, I didn't. Why? Because it's kind of the whole point of the thread, and you and Laurynas are the driving force behind this thread.

    That conclusion is ridiculous and honestly, plain dumb. Where that extrapolated logic makes sense is beyond me.

    This forum deals with pornography addiction, its effects and its treatment. Not what you believe to be the 'truth' that us ignorant folk don't know under the false pretense of motivation or self help. This forum goes against the mainstream idea of pornography consumption in the media, not the entirety of the media in itself.

    This entire thread has been one extreme, alarmist campaign from the start with its tabloid title. All you guys are doing is telling us NOT TO LISTEN TO THIS and NOT TO LISTEN TO THAT and BE AFRAID OF THIS.

    May I ask who you are to tell me what to think? Lol, your presentation doesn't make your rationale any different from the 'mainstream' you hate so much. Please respect our intelligence and allow us to make our own decisions regarding how we use the media.

    A more constructive approach would have been to moderate your own extreme views and offer practical suggestions or constructive opinions on the subject. But that might be wishful thinking.

    You obviously love corporate america and can't handle anyone questioning it's effect. You put up this silly defense and paint the other person's argument in it's most extreme context. No one has said you should throw your tv out of the window, give up the western lifestyle and go meditate in the himalayas.

    The Op is showing the effects and damage tv has on civilisation. You've reacted aggressively and not looked at the debate fairly. You just retort back with childish sarcasm that is not in the least bit original or funny.

    Meaning to mention what? Your disagreement with my ideas?

    Should've mentioned it in my thread.

    Letting the anger build up until it explodes in a fantastic burst of nerd-rage and personal anger against me is a sign of cowardice. ;D

    I work in finance, I'm going to school for economics and finance, I'm not going to argue this topic with someone who believes that we should follow the economic ideas portrayed in Hollywood film ( =OOOO ) Fight Club.

    As for Paleo: yeah, but the diet is heavily based on evolution. While I fully, wholeheartedly believe in it, I'm not going to sit here and say that cavemen were happier than we are. All you talk about in your journal is how we're sucked into consumerism and materialism and how shit used to be sooo amazing before all this.

    That is exactly what Modus and tsmith are doing.

    They are reacting to the terrible feeling that they are experiencing due to someone challenging their ideas by putting words in people's mouths and exaggerating yours, mine and Laurynas arguments by retorting with personal attacks and unfunny sarcasm.

    The only people who are parroting their poor attempts at humor are those who are in agreement with them, and feel threatened by the ideas that are being presented by Laurynas.

    It's actually quite funny, they are reacting in the same exact way as the sexologists who feel threatened by Gary Wilson's work.

    What does what you go to school for have to do with a film that inspires me?

    Oh ya? A post from JtF's thread a couple of months ago to clear things up for you buddy:

    My reply then:

    As usual you are putting words in my mouth.

    And you've been building up all the anger you have against me due to a disagreement with my ideas.

    How mature of you! ;D

    I know that many people my not agree with my points of view, but that doesn't make me quietly build up anger against them until I explode in a burning rage.
