Excellent article, and congratulations on getting published in "Salon". That's a very cool achievement.
I seem to remember that when several people here at FLAK did not receive a reply to their resignation letters, that they contacted a church official in SLC named Greg Dodge, who apparently is in charge of membership records. Maybe someone who already resigned will offer some information about that.
Greg Dodge is no longer with Membership Records.
Like I mentioned, the only thing that you have to do is send a letter with delivery confirmation (just so you can say for sure that the letter was delivered). All of the other bureaucracy is just their own internal bullshit that they use to try and make you feel like you're being a burden and that they have control of you until THEY decide to give it up. That's not how it works.
