Ironically, this thread strikes me as more negative than most anything else I've seen here.
And I say that with as little negativity as possible.
I agree with @george that I think you were trying to hit a certain note and hit the wrong one. (Which makes it also a little ironic that you're now discussing "public relations".)
If I understand you right, it's that there is a lot of discussion here centering around the difficulties in fitting into consumer society, and that it occasionally borders on defeatist. And frankly, I can understand that point. There is a lot of "my SO doesn't understand" and "so the other day my coworkers mocked my lack of X consumer good, what do?" type posts. But as @Ego has said, that is a perfectly natural theme when discussing an "extreme" lifestyle, and where better to discuss it than with other practitioners?
Further, to take the Matrix analogy, there is a certain negativity inherent in knowing the truth behind the workings of the world. ERErs are better able to see the naivety, greed, and self-destructive nature of consumer economies and the governments and populations that support them. Once you've taken the red pill--or blue pill, whatever, I don't know the Matrix--you can't go back to blissful ignorance.
Of course, there's also the inherent positive of ERE--being, or becoming, free of said destructive systems, and all the opportunities and joys that freedom entails. Which I believe is what you're getting at.
And I think there are just as many "positive" discussions here too, dealing with practical skills, sharing personal financial victories, telling amusing stories, discussing philosophical, socioeconomic, and investment theories, etc.
So perhaps the "positive" response to your problem would be to create more threads in that vein, or whatever other "awesomeness" you prefer. Get out there and show us how it's done.
