I had a rather large post dedicated to post # 69 ( Billy madison: 69 ahh aha ha ha ha ha ha)
However I guess I took too long so when I hit post I was apparently logged out and now it is all gone. I guess I should make it a habit of highlighting everything and copying it just before I hit the submit button.
I guess this is my shortened less passionate version of my lost post.
I started out as redcrown27 on NOM. Based on my post I feel some of the citizens of the NOM city didn't feel that I was ready to dwell among the Nomites. They suggested that I go to StayLDS
I signed up as greenapples and began posting here.
Once I became comfortable with the fact that I know that I don't know I felt okay with NOM. I am not at all offended by the bluntness of NOM.
There may be some people on the NOM site that have not gone to church for a long while but I don't feel that it is an EX Mormon site though.
Most EX Mormon sites seem to just be a place for people to vent about how much they hated being in the church and how glad they are to be out. Once they vented enough they log out of the site and don't come back.
NOM is a place where non believing Mormons can openly discuss their lack of belief.
Staylds feels more like a formal dinner.
NOM feels like a backyard BBQ or a beach party.
I feel people could mingle back and forth no problem if they were in Fowler Stage 4 or above. I feel like a stage 3 who is just breaking into stage 4 would not feel comfortable. Most people on this site would probably feel rather comfortable at NOM.
You just have to dress differently (In your mind) when you go to the site.
