This video was interesting, not informative in anyway but entertaining to watch. Unfortunately it disappoints me to see things such as this where "secrets" get out. In my opinion any exposure to the media is bad for any PUA period. I know I can't be alone in thinking this...

You aren't alone in thinking that media exposure is bad for the community, but learning pickup is so complex that just mere knowledge of some basic terms and concepts by the general public will do little to damage an actual PUA's game. In fact, less material was shown this season than last and the only tool in the PUA's arsenal that is possibly made ineffective is the opinion opener because of the media coverage surrounding it and its overuse in the community as a whole.

Besides, you should worry less about what "secrets" are being made public and more about actually going out and meeting women, because it means absolutely nothing if the entire knowledge base of PUA material was downloaded into every female brain at birth or not if you have no intention of going out and actually interacting with the opposite sex to begin with.

I think it's actually a good thing that more of these techniques are becoming more mainstream. It may help convince many of the more zealous community types that maybe there's more to socializing than spitting lines and running microcalibrated tactics. Maybe then they'll focus on the cause of the problems with women instead of the symptoms.
