Exmo Aspie has been nursing an antisemitic and white nationalist grudge for a while. I guess he ran into some Mormons who decided to take advantage of that and pull him back into the cult. Where did he get the vocabulary here? "Its about who gets to be hold hegemonic power in the Intermountain West, and its clear there are some extremely wealthy and powerful people(many of them Jewish) wh

Perhaps the batteries in his lighted pen have run out. Good exmos around the word should mail him batteries so that he may continue writing down the nocturnal word of God. I don't know if his pen uses AA or AAA batteries, so you might want to send both kinds.

The site costs about $2500/year to run. We'd love to get donations for two years worth of operation so that we don't have to fund raise again for a while. I'll put the $5000 goal up on the OP. Thanks to everyone! CZ

In this case, virtue signaling is tied to the size of your donation. Please be virtuous. And maybe we ought to get some tote bags made.

Greetings fellow exmos! It's been a year since our last fund raiser and it's time to do it again. Although we hate to ask for money, the cost realities of hosting, bandwidth, etc. require us to occasionally ask for donations. Our last one was in July of 2019, and we only have a couple of months of funds left in our account. The site costs about $2500/year to operate, and our goal is to rais

A group of Mormons has been seated at a restaurant table. The server hands them the drinks menu and asks, "Would anyone care for a cocktail before dinner?" The Mormons reply, "No! We don't drink alcohol!", thus signaling their LDS virtue. Anyone else who did not wish to imbibe would simple respond, "No, thank you."

Thanks, this is an important point. Those with symptoms, or who have been exposed to those with the virus, or who are immunocompromised, or are elderly or otherwise high risk should definitely self isolate. Masks help control the transmission under normal circumstances, but there are better ways to control it if the circumstances are known to be more dire.

You're a baaaaaaad debater, Zeeeeezrom, if that's the best you can come up with. You might want to try embracing reality instead of believing all of the conspiracy theories that the ignorant and the politically motivated are spreading.

We've had a couple of posts lately that question the effectiveness of masks in the Covid-19 era. It's important to wear a mask when you're around other people, but perhaps not for the reason you might think. There are two different scenarios for wearing a mask to prevent infection: 1. Medical personnel wear special masks to protect them from getting infected from people they are treating. T

Fine, we'll do this in public. Please stop reposting things that the mods have previously taken down. It just gives us more work and paints you in a somewhat adversarial light. Thanks, CZ (admin)

All, We're going to move away from discussion of the protests. We allowed it for a while because it was a major news story, but it really is off-topic and is causing a lot of dissension here. Unless there is a story that is closely linked with the church or Mormonism, please don't post it. That includes stories that are Utah/morridor related. Just because Mormons are involved doesn't mean t

I was tempted to remove this whole thread for politics and bickering, but I thought it would be better to pull a couple of the problematic replies and add an admin note. The link in the original post is to a letter purportedly written by a UC Berkeley history professor who is a person of color. Lot's Wife is correct in saying that we have no way of knowing who wrote the letter and that it may

Those binoculars are also great for astronomical viewing, so don't forget to go outside at night and look up. The moon will be beautiful, especially if you look near the terminator (the dividing line between light and darkness). You should also be able to see star clusters and the moons of Jupiter. Here are some links to help you out: http://binocularsky.com https://earthsky.org/human-w

If you want to contribute here, then stop trying to hide your identity. Please use a consistent username and follow the board rules. Otherwise, everything you write will be removed. Perhaps it will warm your heart to write your responses and cast them into the ether, but will you get as much satisfaction if no one reads them? CZ (admin)

The Reason article to which you link appears to debunk the reporting from The Blaze. Here is its first line, after a long quote from The Blaze: "I looked into this, and there seems to be no basis for suggesting that de Blasio is preferring Muslims over Christians and Jews."

Only Susan I/S is allowed to post cute pet photos. I will allow a limited amount of discussion of string theory because it is (mental) masturbation, and we have always allowed conversation on topics that the church frowns upon, such as sexuality and thought. But within reason! Please keep it PG-13ish. I have spoken. CZ (admin)

I should have responded more thoroughly sooner, but it's been a busy week. After I write this I'm going to close the thread because speculation without information leads to fights. Amyjo may indeed have felt bullied, but there's no way for any of us to verify that, other than her claims. I do not believe that she was actually bullied here. Whatever her issues were, they were her own creations.

I asked her to take a temporary time out, and she decided to leave permanently. Yes, there are more details, but those are the only important ones. It’s unlikely that she’ll be back. CZ (admin)
