A few suggestions to those persons who are inclined to
discuss things other than security:

3) join a 12-step group
4) consult a professional
5) hunt for vulnerabilities in pron sites
6) Find the appropriate venue to voice your opinions
and do so. For example, if your topic is 'politics'
you could visit 'Google Groups'
(http://groups.google.com) and search for the word
'politics'. Oh, and then press 'Search'.
