Naked Science Forum has made possible some very serious medical progress with this under-researched, crippling malady that has destroyed lives, careers and relationships. Despair and hopelessness have been alleviated with this thread. Serious medical researchers have been attracted.

On behalf of the 150+ sufferers who have posted, and countless other lurkers, all I can say is Thank You Very Much!

Maybe you should get a room get your own forum to discuss this niche adult  interest.

Hang on a mo, the POIS thread has had over three quarters of a million views ...

What a mean-spirited sexually dysfunctional comment.

Brilliant!

Let me guess, your hobby is bombing children's hospitals?

When you can produce one tiny shred of evidence that porn and POIS are even remotely related, maybe I'll listen.

You probably laugh at cancer, leukemia and coronary victims, no doubt.

Pathetic, lol! ;D

Demografx: your responses to RD's post, which was clearly intended to be ironic, were outrageous.

To accuse someone thus...

...and...

...is not only neurotically irrational but bordering on psychotic.  At least the response by counterpoints was civil, if also equally misdirected.

RD's post was neither mocking nor attacking anyone suffering from POIS.

Oh, come on, let's be real, shall we?

"TNS' porn channel?"

"Get a room?"

"Niche adult interest?"

This is EXACTLY the kind of snickering discouragement that prevents treatment!

Sorry, I'm not buying the apologetics in the least.

Lee, when you deal with suicidal POIS  sufferers who have been mocked EXACTLY in this manner, you just MIGHT perhaps knock off the "near-psychotic" and "it's only ironical" allusions.

In a bid to keep a semblance of peace, I removed the 'jerk' graphic.

You can't post something like what RD wrote in a serious and extremely sensitive medical discussion and expect people -- who are suffering and somewhat desperate -- to not be upset.  I was actually quite blown away by it. If it wasn't meant to mock or attack, which seems unlikely, then it was certainly thoughtless.

Yes, let's get real: this is a science forum but the POIS thread is more about providing information, support and therapy.

Affecting a small minority of people does make it a niche subject, which due to the nature of the subject is clearly adult.  That's not a criticism but a fact.

In my opinion this subject does deserve its own forum, for trying to deal with it in a single thread on a forum intended for science discussions can only ensure that the subject is not adequately dealt with; it may be better than nothing, but not by much.  The number of posts in that thread, and the number of views certainly indicates that the subject deserves more attention than a single thread in an unrelated forum can enable and ultimately retards the progress that the subject really deserves.

All sorts of people are mocked, and all sorts of people feel suicidal, but that is no excuse for making such fantastic accusations, none of which I'm sure you actually believe; your responses were just a straightforward and near frenzied attack on someone else who you perceived, rightly or wrongly, to be unsympathetic to your beliefs.  If someone says something you don't like you have all the right in the world to ignore them, but you don't have the right to attack them.

Lee, I have no ego to defend, but yes I do feel supremely protective of this group.

The thread is equally about medical science. Our thread has been cited in the British Medical Journal and many other places and has garnered some top scientific research attention.

I am very deeply disheartened that you cannot seem to acknowledge that - very simply - hurtful things were said.

Regardless of what you think.

If that is truly the limit of your ability to understand the dynamics here, then the response was...

...simply equally ironic.

Extremely well said, Counterpoints. Thank you very much.

I've locked this topic so that people can cool off a bit.

We're all friends here and we don't want any wars.

There are far too many important and interesting threads to respond to here without us all wasting our time on arguments and rebuttals.

Thanks

Chris
