Wow, what a mess. Finally caught up over there.
I see someone had to come over and pout about others playing with his toys. (Im having flashbacks of my children being grounded, but having fits that the other children went outside to play!)
I have great respect for Gracie, but I dont understand the longing for the "old" tone. I have participated on VFTF for over a year now.
I consider myself "recovered",but that does not mean I am "done" disscussing with others about their angst.
Moronism has many, many layers and the process of peeling them is an individual process. Compassion includes letting people heal on their own schedule. As long as someone IS moving forward in a healthy way-why compare them to predessors who handled their transition differently?
Dunno, I might be totally reading something else into it. I dont have all the answers.
I think boards DO need guidelines and I dont think mods are evil. A society without boundaries is chaos.
I think we need to keep in mind HERE that boards are living entities that ebb and flow. They are organisms that grow and change over time.
I expect that here. People will come in and out.
Some participants needs will NOT be met here. No board can be all things to all people. Hopefully, there are enough people here who feel a diffrent kind of "calling" (forgive me for the lack of a better term) to serve others and help THEM develop their own plan of examining how they feel about Mormonism in their lives.
We were pushed out and we clung together in support. I greatly admire what was done here!
