Gosh - so many Newbies! Hi to Margarita and Radio.
Margarita - I think most of us can relate to what you say about finding "the truth about the truth" for the first time. Although I had left the organisation several years previous, finding answers on the net was what enabled me to close that chapter of my life for good.
Radio - Don't worry about the flame wars - you normally have to go out of your way to get involved in them. Otherwise there are people here to make sure you don't get picked on!
hmm.. i started my intro with "lurker no more" ... i did not realize so many felt that lurkers are jw's trying to cause problems.
To clarify I read but did not post (for some of the same reasons as radiolady).... I am an ex JW for almost 10yrs...and no I was not stalking anyone & certainly NOT trying to cause problems for anyone else that may post... it amazes & disgusts me that anyone could/would cause problems for someone just by reading this stuff
