Hi Felix, I am not a moderator but you can email a question to them directly. Usually if you review the guidelines carefully you will find the answer. It also could just be a technical glitch with your post. Good luck!

I don’t know of this specific instance but in general, yes, google has a revenue stream for search term responses to be topped. You should be able to bookmark this site on your phone so you get to it via favorites instead of a google search.

On the linked web page: I guess kudos for writing “humankind” rather than mankind but “people” could have worked... The emphasis on “join a community “ ha! Truth in advertising: TRY to join a non-welcoming community of people who will be suspicious of you ... (just my experience ) ...and expect you to work for free babysitting other people’s children...

While of course I don’t support LDS, after thinking about this I’ve decided it is a nice, high-level gesture, like diplomacy. I was rembering when a synagogue was victim of a mass shooting, somewhere in an Eastern state maybe New York, that the Muslim religious leaders not only came to the memorial but also offered to provide security for the synagogue. I think it can only be a good t

Bhar, I was a convert and so I don’t have a lot to add that would be relevant to your situation but I wish you well in your life journey. I didn’t read much when I was disillusioned, it was more to do with the people and the church behavior than any revelation about Joseph Smith. But the people here are very knowledgeable and all these recommendations are great, I’m sure. I hope,

There are a lot of lonely people out there who are vulnerable to scam artists. When I first joined LDS I wanted so much to belong and be accepted I would have turned over more than 10% if the Bishop had asked me to. :( It is a hard cruel world with many people seeing others as prey. Good post OP and good reminder.
