in my exp if a person leaves for Dogma reason- they are less likely to return , but for one who leaves due to fallout with indiviual, pub, elders, other memebers or one is DFed for various sexuall issues, the fellings of that THEY did wrong are more likely to return in my exp.
it just depend on Why folks stop in the first place
dogma or personlity issues or dfing
i left strictly due to dogmas,
i was well treated,loved, respected and at the top of the wt power ladder as it were- as stated once you find out santa ain't real it is hard to go back to believing
