Opinions Needed

I'm thinking of starting a community, and I need some opinions on whether or not it's a good idea.

What I'd like to do is create a community where Christians who struggle with (and want to break the addiction of) pornography (visual, written, or any other form) and masturbation can gather together with other Christians who share the same struggles. All would be welcome, regardless of age or sex. The goal would be to basically spam up the community with encouragement...discuss the times when temptation seemed too much, but Jesus pulled you through, offer Bible verses that helped you, post prayers, ask for prayer when you're going through a particularly weak moment, etc. The gory details wouldn't have to be shared, just the general ideas, and all the posts would be locked for the privacy of the members. Nobody would judge you or look down upon you, because we'd all be in the same place. Sort of a support group, but one that would work because Jesus would be the center of it. The understanding and encouragement of other Christians is a powerful thing. Together, through Jesus, we can overcome any sin.

So, what do you all think? Would people join? Would it work? Is there already a community identical to this that I just don't know about? Throw me your thoughts.

Cross-posted to every other Christian community I'm a member of. I apologize if I take over your flist.
