A newbie here, joined about half an hour ago.
I started the fade about 10 years ago and have been totally inactive for about 3 years. The reason being was that I became totally disillusioned. It became so, how should I say, suffocating with its many petty laws, restrictions, requirements, and dare I say, a certain amount of paranoia among some of the congregation members.
Toward the end, before I became totally inactive, I could best be described as a 'submarine publisher' - surfaced for the memorial and the odd meeting and assembly, then disappearing for weeks / months on end.
Anyway, looking forward to participating in the discussions and getting to virtually know you all.
