He sounds a lot like that guy that tried to tell a Reddit subforum what's what - mostly by saying, "You're not helping your goddamn cause." ANd he made a point to say what he could bench, what he looked like, etc. In later responses, after people made fun of him for saying that, he said that he only put in descriptions of what he could look like and how athletic he was because he didn't want anyone calling him an overweight pathetic neckbeard.

And then someone read all that imitating the voice of Sauron (Or Ian Mckellen, I don't quite remember now.) It was glorious. I don't know where to find the link, though.

Exactly. If people truly want to learn, they'd look it up themselves.

Or at least put -some- effort into it. But any kind of useful "discussion on the material" can only happen if they've got some grasp of the material to begin with. Ya GOTS ta do the READING.

Well, and most people who are open to education come at it enthusiastically, curiously, or cautiously... Not usually defiantly. "Fuck you, educate me about why mainstream porn is bad, but not until after I finish beating off," is... Unusual for someone who really is interested in having their concepts challenged.

Seriously disagree with this "porn is bad" mantra though.

What?? How dare you!! VERY RELIABLE sources established that sinfest-forums are constantly moderated. By tons of moderators who watch everything. With super-computers! And lasers! And tamed dragons! And don't you deny that!!
Wait? You deny it? You keep playing the 'absentee moderator card'?? You're one of them, aren't ya??

Well, she WAS posting up random nonsense for the public of facebook to discredit her husband. That's quite some malicious backstabby thing to do.

Calling people out in public is never "backstabby" it's "frontstabby".

Backstabby would be complaining to his mother/coworkers privately about it.

You are right ,it is frontsabby. The reason people would call this behaviour 'backstabby' is because they see it as a betrayal of an unspoken (or, I guess, spoken in some cases) contract between the couple ,that says that couple-related problems -such as ''you watch porn and I'm not comfortable with it'' are to be discussed within the couple and not out of it.

People tend to correlate 'betrayaly' with 'backstabby'.

Side note: I'm not trying to say whether such a contract is a good thing or a bad thing, I just thought I gave my input on why one might consider this backstabby.
