I suggest it would be more proper to take up your issue with a PM to the mods. rather than publicly on this thread.
As I noted before , one of the authors’ blogs states that he was able to overcome his unhappy abstinence and currently considers himself to be a happy moderate level user.
I assume he believes in his own ideas and would want them promoted virtuously. I further believe he holds himself up as an example of success by virtue of the model. So I assume all the authors consider his outcome as the optimal outcome , what other conclusion can I draw?
My AV loves this idea, what does yours say?
