Wow! Welcome to all the new folks. We are pretty laid back here (except Plutarch, but even he grows on ya). Grab a chair and a glass of whatever libation you consider best suits you, and join any of the conversations. We have a fair mix of TBM's, cafeteria Mormons, ex-mos, ex'ed mos, never-mos, and non-mos. We have a few inactives, a few TRH actives, a few scholars, a few wannabe scholars, a few Ph.D.'s, a few high school graduates, a few college students... we have a few of just about every kind of poster imaginable. What we don't have is an out-of-control moderating team (we even tell you who our mods are: Shades, Keene, and Liz). We keep the place swept up (spam bots are relegated to Outer Darkness), the language allowed depends on the forum (Celestial is G rated, Terrestial is PG rated, and Telestial is R rated), and its almost impossible to get banned (we're still awaiting our first ban). We're adults here. We like our conversation lively, our wit funny, and our assertions grounded in reality. If someone asks you for references, you'd better have them or else be prepared to back off from your assertion. We like controversy, we like hard-nosed toe-to-toe partisan discussion, and we like board wars. Some of us have been banned from multiple boards, some of us because we earned it, some of us simply because of who we are. We're glad you're here. Join in and make yourselves at home.
