    Doesn't Evans understand that no moral, sensible person wants to dialogue with him?

    So I want to apologise as well. I was wrong.
    No apology required, it ok xx

    With regards to Sarah Harris's comments. Lloyd has always been sensitive to his interpretation of criticism. I remember back in 2014 when I first came out and I made a random, non-confrontational comment, he jumped down my digital throat. At the time I was obviously still in a vulnerable state, but still felt what a shitty person he was/is.

    If this was a one-off, bad day thing then we could easily forgive anyone for that, but it isn't, it is a pattern and people need to know this. Especially when dealing with very vulnerable people.

    In fact, IS there even an exjw community?

    It depends on how you define the term.

    We do tend to use the term "community" to describe a group of people with a common interest or trait. I'm an atheist, so I belong to the "atheist community." I'm an exJW, so I belong to the "exJW community." If I take up guitar playing, I suppose I'll become part of the "guitar-playing community," which is necessarily a subset of the "music community."

    But I think of a community as something you help to form or join and become an active part of. I guess you could say I am a part of the community that is this message board, since I joined it and take part in discussions here. But I'm not active in any other part of the "exJW community." So am I a part of it? Or am I just an exJW? I think it's the latter. Under this definition, there is no such thing as an overarching exJW community. Just exJWs, some of who form small communities.

    Kim Silvio, has anyone received a list of the accusations contained in Evans’ lawsuit? Is there any proof that there is actually a lawsuit filed?

    Thanks, TonusOH. That sounds about right to me.

    Interesting that Lloyd went to the Ukrainian border to pick up refugees.

    Let's hope he goes to Mariupol or Donbas next, lol ...

    I wonder if he has any "girlfriends" in Ukraine? 🤔

    Perhaps if he hadn't taken a bunch of camera equipment and film team crew, he might have fitted in more people. Why doesn't he go back for more, or was it a one off to make you tube content on the back of the crises?

    Yeah, it's the difference between going to do a good thing for the sake of doing it alone, and maximizing what you can do, which means no "team" and less equipment ... and doing it for PR purposes.

    I haven't watched it, but is it really about helping or is to be seen to be helping? I'm sure the last thing people fleeing want to see is a YouTuber making a film about them.

    But vulnerable people that can be of use to Lloyd? Fire up the cameras ...
