One way to reduce the number of "sicco's" in this world is to meet them with a small degree of compassion and understanding...

I think I am being compassionate by suggesting help.

How would you propose that I extend compassion?

Hey, compassion comes in all shapes and sizes that is for sure. However, compassion isn't about pointing out someones mistakes. Also, suggesting that someone get help, if necessary, should be approached cautiously and with a gentle nudge in the right direction vs. a blanket statement of "GET HELP!" Last, on a subject such as this, if and when one party wants to suggest help, he or she should never make the individual in question the focus of the subject i.e.: "You need to get help". It could be more like: "Plenty of people struggle with these types of things and they have successfully overcome their addictions by seeking some professional guidance..."

By phrasing it that way the individual feels that he or she is not alone and he or she is not being personally attacked.

Or something to that effect.

On another note, I hear what you're saying loud and clear and I agree with you. Where does it end? Everyone has a different way looking at things.

You don't need to explain... unless you feel that you want too. You don't need to apologize either. A little heated debating never hurt anyone

And, would you prefer that the OP never mention it, never reach out, never acknowledge the fact, if it is indeed a fact, and just keep it well hidden until it manifests in a different, perhaps more dangerous way?
reply to post by Skorpiogurl
 



??? The op did not reach out for help..he was fishing for more material..if he /she really wanted help they would have approached the wording on a totally different way...or better yet gone to a professional or a website that would help.

What happened on this op was someone looking for more violent material, and others who "enjoyed" it. I was appalled by this and said so in a post.

What I find even stranger is that I was the one in violation for speaking out against it..and the Op gets away with advertising for violence on this site.. WOW

So I guess the mods today think its ok for a member to be asking for violent clips to share, but its not ok for a member to show absolute disgust at this?

Okay... I hear you. But I think individuals interpret things in different ways, don't you? In my experience, one who has a real issue or problem will usually tend to approach it with a joke. So you see it as fishing for material, and that may indeed be the case. However, my first instinct told me this was a real problem and the OP was generalizing. Two different views, both okay.

It seems as if you are extremely offended by the entire scenario, care to explain why? I get the feeling it is more personal for you...? Please note that I am not being abbrasive or challenging you in any way, I am simply curious as to why this is effecting you in such a manner.

Here is a thought for the op as well. Considering these are horrible images of people in accidents and such (not sure where all these come from) , how would the op feel if he knew many people were enjoying the gruesome pics of his dearly beloved family members that were in a terrible accident.

Would that be ok to the OP?

I'm just wondering how these images can even be legal? Does not the family of these victims have some right over who gets to look at pics of their dismembered family members?

ummm...maybe because its CREEPY...geez...think about it..doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that it is demented and weird.

Now..I am simply curious as to why you can't see how dark and unhealthy this really is?.... Is this for personal reasons?

Quite honestly anyone who can accuse me as having issues because I am extremely offended by someone saying they enjoy watching film of people being beheaded in a accidents, and was wondering if anyone else out there is into it,and if they would like to share their videos ...has serious issues themselves..

I'm shocked and amazed that you would think I am the one with issues because I find this disturbing. I find it disturbing if anyone is not offended by the op....ugh.

Okay then. I was hoping for a healthy and ingelligent banter here and it seems as if I won't get it. With that, allow me to retort before taking my leave of this thread.


Now..I am simply curious as to why you can't see how dark and unhealthy this really is?.... Is this for personal reasons?


I can see how dark and unhealthy this is. However, until now that question was not presented directly to me nor is the thread or subject matter about me. Let' us not assume that I do not feel exactly the same way as you my friend. I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few.


Quite honestly anyone who can accuse me as having issues because I am extremely offended by someone saying they enjoy watching film of people being beheaded in a accidents, and was wondering if anyone else out there is into it,and if they would like to share their videos ...has serious issues themselves..


I don't believe anything I wrote directed toward you was accusatory in the least. I am sorry you feel that way. I don't appreciate the implication or tone that I have serious issues. For the record, the only issue I have is that I possess a God complex and due to its nature, I don't see it as an issue at all.


I'm shocked and amazed that you would think I am the one with issues because I find this disturbing. I find it disturbing if anyone is not offended by the op....ugh.


I don't necessarily believe that you are the one with issues because you find it disturbing. I simply noted that you seem to take it more personally than most did, and I asked if you cared to share why. I will take the blanket response of "because it's creepy" as a no.

Interesting.

This thread is really of no consquence to me any longer.

Have a most excellent day.

??? sorry.. but if you are condoning the op with these statements..thats just plain ridiculous.

There are people who film others getting beaten up so they can post it for violence lovers. That is not religion or politics..that is just greed and demented desires.

Its amazing how many people are talking about child pornography.. kinda makes you wonder who the sickos really are in this thread..

All you people claiming I need help over something that is just a habit of mine, its a habit I don't enjoy, but I gain knowledge from it. Honestly, if this kind of thing gets you all riled up enough to spit out your judgements and labels then you my friends are the only sick ones here.

People are so judgemental nowadays just because somebody has formed a habit of doing something on the internet that you happen to not agree with.. that doesn't entitle you to speculative labeling of that person. You people should look at yourselves and figure out who really is the one that needs help here.

Funny how you have been dodging the real issue by referring OUT of CONTEXT.. again... why ..child rape was even brought into this.

And yes..I am judgmental of souls who GET OFF on violence..who are "addicted" to watching it..and ask for more stuff to view... I think its shows dangerous tendencies to weird adrenalin rushes.

There is NO KNOWLEDGE to be gained from watching this crap !!! (unless you seriously want to help people like this from a medical point of understanding..and even then you wouldn't log into it 3 to 4 times a day)

...and you admitted you liked it in your op..so don't try and play that card...and don't try and twist this around so that others really have the issues...and you don't.

I'm serious..if you're getting addicted to watching people getting beat up severely "for sport"..and getting off on seeing pics of serious accidents..I suggest you go talk to a professional about it.

But how long before watching violence isn't enough and you have to act out your addiction for real?

My advice to you is to seek medical advise, maybe get medication to calm your mind.

Find something to do that provides peace and tranquility and do it alot.

Hello Anoynymoose,I think you might need some help from a psychologist..I never wake up looking for violent/crazy things on ATS and i sure don't seek out violence..I find your post to be in very poor taste ..peace, sugarcookie1

For real?
Because you said this earlier too,

As a side note, I am totally addicted to disasters both natural and man-made. Not that I want there to be human suffering and loss of life, I don't. But I do look forward to the next earthquake, hurricane, plane crash, etc...


Ouch.

Have to admit that sometimes a streetfight 1on 1 is interesting to watch, just to see if the guy has a potential to be a good competitive fighter, or when a bully gets ass kicked its kind of epic feeling

Sometimes violence is the only way and theres nothing bad to watch and have feelings about it.
But to see an innocent hostage beheaded and not feel bad about it, well, something is not right or you are missing something.. Thats my opinion.

Ouch? Really? Why do you think people go into fields like meteorology, seismology, geology..... because they have a healthy fascination with natural events. Like I do
