"You have problems."

"You have problems."

That was the response I got to this:

You wrote to me a few years ago. I do not WANT your writing on my site. Television is ruining your life because you're obsessed with television as the devil.

Why don't you live a happy, peaceful life without television instead of dedicating your time and energy to something you hate? It's not healthy. Your writings are disturbing. You bring a very unsettled vision into my otherwise very peaceful life.

The person whose writing I am rejecting once again (after engaging in a longer discussion and a more polite rejection last time around) has allowed television to ruin his life without even watching it, I guess.

And just now when I went to bring a link to what he was talking about, I see that I have it on my "arguments against TV" page already. (I don't want to name him and give him more exposure, but it's under the garbage can art, and my review there is "Badly written, but short.")

I did make a page of links to anti-TV writings. I don't think a single one of those other pages has any links to the ever-growing collection of benefits of TV.

It's nearly a compliment, though, that someone as seemingly deranged as this guy thinks I have problems. I hope he will recover from being mesmerized by the evils of television, though, and go on to live a healthy life.

I always wonder why people allow their hate for things take over their lives. It's just like those Phelps radical "Christians" that protest at everything one can think of. The amount of time, effort and brainpower they spend on hating people, concepts etc could be spent doing something useful to our society, like volunteering at a soup kitchen or breakfast program or SPCA or just enjoying life! It never makes sense to me!
