Please allow me to be the voice that finally rids this group of the N&D troll.
I find the very mention of Jim Jones and the events at Jonestown to be beyond repugnant. This comparison, no matter how phrased, is extremely dangerous.
Any attempt to justify the cults behavior in a forum designed to permit and facilitate dissenting discussion is counterproductive to the forums reason for existing. IF one wishes to start a PRO-CULT forum is this website the place to do it? I would guess your response to be NO. SO.. why allow PRO-CULT or apologist posts at all, especially if they are gross and disgusting like N&D's last regarding JJ?
Enough is enough in my mind. Please pull the plug on N&D.
