How does that relate to porn?  Is addiction to porn the same as a substance addiction?
Sorry, never been addicted to porn. But if it is anything like being psychologically addicted to pot, which is not physically addicting, I feel it is a lot easier to break the addiction. If you want to. I have an old friend who is addicted to porn. I mentioned him in an earlier post. He probably spends several hours a night watching and downloading. It's sad because he finally got a girlfriend after like 20 years and the porn was more important to him. She broke up with him. He admitted to me that one night when he called me up drunk and crying that he lost her because he chose the porn over her. Those were his words. He chose... No matter how you look at it, the person knows when it is getting out of hand (pun intended). When they start planning their day around their addiction, when they stop doing their normal routine in order to fulfill their addiction, when they push away their old family and friends to fulfill their addiction, they know. They may not want to admit it, but they know. They like to play the victim until they come clean. Then you'll hear the reality of it.

As a side note, Flapp, you might enjoy this since you are into the IT world. My friend and I worked together at a very well known networking company. We were developing products for the SAN/NAS industry so we had access to hundreds of gigabytes worth of hard drive space. We worked in the software and hardware development laboratory. We each probably had 15 or 20 computers at our disposal at any one time. He set up 2 or 3 of his development machines to down load porn pretty much 12 hours a night. When he got home he would download and erase everything from his machines. So one night he ran out of room on all his machines and decided to use the company's  anonymous FTP site to store his porn on. So he gets home and forgets to download and erase the porn from the FTP site. And the next morning the IT admin was trying to figure out why the FTP partition was so full. Fortunately, my friend encrypted and password protected the files (changed names as well) and uploaded the porn from one of the development machines so he covered his tracks. Except for one file which had to do with something gross that I won't get into. The IT admin was puzzled over that one for many months. Then one day the IT admin found out that one of the company Windows hard drives had a secret hidden Linux partition on it. And it was filled with porn. Turns out my friend hacked into one the company servers and installed hidden Linux partition on it. Only way the IT admin found out is he just installed (going to make up these numbers) a 10 GB hard drive without partitions and the next morning it only had 7 GB available. My friend never got caught.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

This "diagnosis" violates the American Psychiatric Association's GOLDWATER RULE.

Quote
Since 1973, the American Psychiatric Association and its members have abided by a principle commonly known as “the Goldwater Rule,”
which prohibits psychiatrists from offering opinions on someone they have not personally evaluated. The rule is so named because of its
association with an incident that took place during the 1964 presidential election. During that election, Fact magazine published a survey
in which they queried some 12,356 psychiatrists on whether candidate Sen. Barry Goldwater, the GOP nominee, was psychologically fit to
be president. A total of 2,417 of those queried responded, with 1,189 saying that Goldwater was unfit to assume the presidency.

Simply put, breaking the Goldwater Rule is irresponsible, potentially stigmatizing, and definitely unethical.

Take my word for it. The whole time you are addicted, you know it. You recognize it the first day you think you can't go a day without a hit. And depending on the drug or alcohol, it does not take very long. The thing is you don't want to admit it and will will lie and deceive to make sure no one else knows it. That is the part that takes the longest. It may take a time or two or a few weeks or months to become addicted. But you know, believe me you know it once you cannot do without it. Overcoming the fear and taking control of your life is what takes years.

I know from personal experience.

Off Topic / Cost of raising (elevating) a house?
« Last post by davgdavg on Today at 11:47:48 AM »
Anybody know the cost of elevating a pier/post plantation style house? It's plantation style, so it's already on posts, it would just need to be lifted about 7-8 feet. Thanks. :shaka:

Looks a little like a propane lockout key, but I can't remember exactly how they are. The kind gas companies use to lock tanks. I would keep it regardless, most times keys for specialty stuff is expensive and/or hard to come by. Once you find out what its for you'll probably wish you still had it.

You're either a liar or don't understand the English language or have no capacity for reasoning and critical thinking. But that's fine, it's not a criticism, just an explanatory hypothesis as to how you can continue to make up false quotations that you ascribe to me.

"Your post was exactly "If you don't like this, then you must like X."" No it wasn't. I didn't use one single one of those words, much less those words in that order. It's exactly the opposite of "exactly". Not anything even remotely like that. But you don't seem to want to post the actual words I wrote, only your fallacious "interpretation" of them. Which you are certainly free to do. As am I free to point out your false misattribution and faulty logic.

I see you haven't responded to my request that you post your criteria for who a President ought be allowed to invite to the White House, and/or who on the list I provided you would find "acceptable". Why no response? Lemme guess: "[N]o sense in having a discussion with people who" ask simple questions? It would clarify whatever it is is the point you are trying to make. I suspect, and again, it's not an accusation or a claim of fact, but just a hypothesis, you haven't responded with your list of criteria because when you distill it down to its essence it is: "No one should be allowed in the White House who I disagree with". Prove me wrong. Let's see your list of "objective criteria" (and please don't use weasel-words like "racist", "sexist", "misogynist", "homophobe", "xenophobe", "islamophobe", "irredeemable", "deplorable", etc.).

Lol, Here is the copy/paste of what I wrote. I never said anything was "unacceptable" or they shouldn't be allowed. I said it was "sad to see him in the White House." Man, you are being really thick.

"Sorry, but the Nuge is a giant ass, regardless of his views on 2a or whatever good music he made. He's right up there in Mel Gibson idiot/crazy territory.

Sad to see him in the White House. Republicans everywhere would be good to get rid of these idiots rather than giving them a free pass just because they have some conservative viewpoints.

Come to think of it, Palin is another one that I have to wonder why the hell she is still around?"


It's a question of what beliefs and personality traits are associated with the highest office in the entire world. Like I said before, I don't think racism and anti-antisemitism should be part of what any president or leader is associated with (just like I would say about many other people, not just the Nuge). That's my belief. If you want neo-Nazis, or serial killers, or rapists (actually Nugent was with a 12 year old too, but I'm sure you have some rationale for that as well) or whoever else in the White House, fine, that's your opinion and you're entitled to it, just like my opinion is that I don't want those people there. . Not sure how else I can explain it to get through your apparent psychosis on the matter.

Also, the old, "I'm not racist, I have friends that are X," is the typical BS response of countless racists. Just because he can appreciate good music doesn't change it otherwise. You asked for quotes, etc. I gave them. You just won't accept or hear any other point of view other than your own. Fine, great, have a great day and keep on keepin' on in your own little world, just don't try and drag me into it please. :wacko:
