    Do I count? I'm a transplanted Brit. Transplanted to Canada.
    Though my heart is still in England. I agree with you Lesley- I hate
    reading all the sarcastic remarks- I feel if a newbie comes on here( sometimes)they will feel we are needing guidance- better they stay with the Borg than read this drivel..Especially when they are on about their bedroom antics......Not nessesary I think- But I thank Simon for giving them the chance to get free help- to unwind. I just "opt out" when that happens." Oh the gift that God had give us to see ourselves as others see us" I guess many on the board think my remarks is drivel too. But it has been a help to know I wasnt the only one who went through hell after leaving the kingdom of hell.
    Thanks !!!

    Where are all the Brits? Same place as all the non medal winners at the Olympics!

    Have you noticed that most of the British posters don't get involved in all this slagging off stuff?

    It's a little thing called class!

    Still here, waiting to hear from any Scottish posters, as well as the sasenachs.

    Gotta agree with the comments about flame - can't stand it. I'd sooner back out of an argument and concede defeat, rather than endure the abuse that some dish out (I'm not a proud man).

    IMHO it is never acceptable, on the grounds that JW's need support in finding their own exit plan, and ex-JW's need support because they are often hurting already.

    It was the cynicism and flame that drove me away from "apostate" sites back in 1995. Who knows, but that I might have saved six years of my life, if I had been encouraged by what I saw. That's life, though, and I count my blessings that I'm out now.

    Sorry to hear that, I hope that thing start to get better for you. Give us a call if ever you need to talk. Take care.

    Yes, it’s very true what you said there, everyone is at different stages of leaving, different levels of stress to deal with, the last thing they need is to get embroiled in Flame threads/etc. I’m glad that you are ‘out’ now! Everyday, I wake up feeling most pleased that I’m free at last. Oh the joy! Like you I wish it could of happened sooner.


    Sorry to hear of your health problems, I hope that you are feeling better soon. Yes, there are definitely many brits that don’t post on here…..we just gotta stick around for when they find this great place! Who knows just who will turn up?? Kids back to school Monday ??
