Not really words of support, I was just goofing off and spoofing on advice columns. Had just gotten off work and felt like blowing off steam by amusing myself, and hopefully a few others. That is not to say my words didn't have a good deal of truth to them.
I really did go through a frustrating stage of trying to edit the PT myself, or find the perfect fan edit so I could enjoy them along with the OT. Finally decided it wasn't worth it and that no amount of editing would ever make me enjoy the PT. Instead of destroying my PT, I condemned them to spending eternity taped up in a cardboard box, knowing they are unloved and unwanted. Destroying them, while it may be more satisfying to some, to me it is letting them off too easily.
It would be fun if we all saved up our unwanted SW DVDs, and shredded the things, boxes, inserts and all in industrial quality shredders, and send them to Skywalker Ranch by the thousands. It would be awesome, and would probably make national news. Unfortunately, it would be hard to get that many fans to part with their stuff, no matter how much they claim to hate them, and most those who would be willing to destroy disc one of their GOUTS and their prequels have probably already done so.
A lot of people talked about doing things like this (mailing them to Skywalker Ranch) when the GOUT first came out. Did anyone ever actually do it?

Then you are most definitely among friends. I think there are a good deal of reformed Starwarsoholics around these parts (and naturally, probably just as many if not more non-reformed).
