I actually Banned The Box a year ago. I never watch TV anymore. Better news and info are available on the web. I love it when someone asks me if I have seen a TV show and I reply, I don't watch TV! People find it incredible that I don't care to know what 'smookie' is doing!

Yeah, let's ban TV. Lets ban TV cos some paranoid wackos are worried about it controlling their minds. You can watch whatever the hell you want. If you don't wanna watch those #ty reality tv programs, then don't. Not difficult.
If TV was "banned", we would be inundated with more junk mail in our already overloaded post and emails. Adverts would appear far more in public spaces. Door to door sales, telephone and street canvasing would increase.

after giving it up we found that the National Enquirer and our local paper celebrity news section was no good to us.
scenes are cut into 3 second flashes now and if you don't believe me just watch any 30 second commercial and tell me if you don't count at least 12 cut scenes or more.
I think you do care about or believe in these conspiracies (as something to be feared)
yes i agree BAN the box and completely wipe and BAN porno/nudity on the internet.
The real world is not happening on the television.
What the hell makes you think you have a vote! Hello, uhmm Lucifer? Yes gentile, what? Will you please turn off your swirly magic box of mind control?

Every time I hear the word "ban" I think of people trying to control others, and that is bad. People need to just toss the things out by their own free will. Everything we see needs to change needs to happen in our hearts, there is no other way.
