No it's stupid and so are you. I hate you and everything you stand for. Fzck off.

Hate to be a troll but I'm extremely non-friendly to TF members. I don't plan on changing that.

An interesting blog post from Jan. 23rd, with some good links as well...

Davidito and the scholars: http://shaphan.typepad.com/blog/2005/01/the_children_of.html



Article by a guy named Dave who was in the Family for a few months 25 years ago, then went on to start his own cult. He takes great issue with both the Family & their ex-members...

Hey Monger--I met the "Jesus Christians" several years ago. At first I thought that they were CoG because they were distributing CoG comix.

David MacKay, who started them, copies the Pre-FFing Llifestyle.

They are like the CoG when I joined, before all the "Sexual Revolution".

Their latest twist on going to the extreme in order to give a person what they need is to give away a kidney.

I've engaged in some online discussions with Dave McKay personally. He came to NDN a few years ago, and seemed to be trying to recruit some of our former cult members into his current cult.

I asked him point blank, in several messages if he had personally donated a kidney. He would never answer that question.

I also attemped to engage in a conversation with him regarding informed consent. The idea being that people in a cult may be in a compromised mental state, and perhaps it is unfair to try and influence them to give up an important part of their body.

Of course, none of this made any difference with Dave. The only thing I hope is that he was unsuccessful in his recruitment attempts at NDN.

Yes, he does come across as very arrogant.

The "official" line is that it is totally voluntary. Yet "unofficially" the peer pressure makes you feel guilty if you don't go ahead with it.

What does a monkey who think he's doing the world a favor sound like?

I just want to make sure I am making the right noises.

LOL. Thanks for the laugh. Nice choice of similies. Smile

In any case, it's far easier to point the finger in ridicule and criticism than it is to offer a solution.

If you think you can do a better job at editing this site than we are, you are most welcome to apply for editorship. Perhaps we nuts/monkeys/wannabe-world-pleasers will learn a thing or two from you.

I heartily agree with WalkerJ.

That said, due to security concerns (i.e. we had an editor upload a malicious script in the past) and quality control issues (as people who directly edit the wiki pages have the ability to remove info, etc.), being approved for editorship typically requires a consensus among existing editors and/or a sysop vouching for you. It also helps to have at least minimal technical ability as we've not yet put as much into documentation as we need to.

In case we haven't made this clear earlier, editorship is not restricted to any group of people, be they current, former or never members of The Family.

Course, everyone is very welcome to make suggestions, factual corrections, or write/rewrite proposed articles here on the forum. ...The very first paragraph on the wiki (under "Welcome to xFamily...") encourages just such contribution.

(PS: Very funny, Craven! Laughing)

Go somewhere else
You obviously don't like anything on this site - why do you keep returning here? Go somewhere else where you can actually AGREE with everybody. Quit trying to start problems here. You're comments are unwanted.
