Hi Sattva
Through your post you made an important point.

We are continually looking to satisfy our six senses.
If I do not have the TV I will go to the movies.
If I do not have movies I will listen to the radio.
If I do not have the radio I will gossip with my friends.
If I have no one to gossip I will start eating and so on.

This is caused by the unrest nature of our mind.
The path is all about directing your mind towards a more subtle and wholesome objects an finally to Nirvana.
In that regard participating in DW is more wholesome than other unwholesome activities.

The most important of all is understanding the nature of our mind!
“As the lamp consumes oil, the path realises Nibbana”
