There are a few posters (here) who seem to have joined purely for the purpose of promoting themselves and/or their latest "cause" ... some of them pretend they are joining in with the general banter (and some really are) but a few don't even bother to "like" the occasional post unless it forwards their point or has seriously hit a nerve, they are relentless in banging down cult/cofs facts (always with evidence ... "time, place, form and event") and never just relax and give an opinion.
Nobody can (nor should) expect "allegiance" here based on the insanity of their cult past ... we are each dealing with things in our own way and that is as it should be ... but we mostly try and help each other when things are tough as friends do, it's a message board though and we don't always get it right.
Those that come here purely to push an agenda can't expect to get what they demand when they demand it, but I expect some warmth and genuine interest in other people and their various points of view would help along the way.
Sometimes I can almost hear the yells of "off topic" when someone is obviously and busily working an agenda ... and other posters are not doing as they are "supposed" to.
Most of us are here (I believe) to de-cult and learn to relax again and that is the wonder of ESMB and what I believe Emma wanted when she stuck her own neck on the line to create it.
