Re: Bandwagon effects & Mormonism's online comeuppance

I didn't know about RTM's talk, "Never take counsel from those who do not believe," lol, that's hilarious. Aren't the fifteen advised by an army of lawyers and consultants, many or most of which aren't Mormon? From what I hear, no. Attorneys, consultants, outside audit and internal audit personnel ...

Re: Bandwagon effects & Mormonism's online comeuppance

The tidbit about The More Good Foundation was especially interesting: I have always viewed it as a fundamentally Mopologetic organization—basically, a secretive funding arm that would help finance and enable things like FAIR, or Allen Wyatt’s infamous cyber-squatting. More recently, Louis Midgley c...

Re: Bandwagon effects & Mormonism's online comeuppance

The SCMC is pretty useless at this point, unless they have several thousand employees that can scour the internet everyday. I predict the Church's Instagram page will stop allowing comments. The alternative is to heavily moderate the comments, further alienating Mormon women who already feel they h...

Bandwagon effects & Mormonism's online comeuppance

It has been a dozen years since Facebook acquired Instagram, and more than two dozen years since Microsoft acquired Hotmail. Hotmail pioneered a marketing model known as "viral marketing." Instagram brought us "influencers" and the social "bandwagon effect," which seeks to create FOMO by demonstrati...

Re: Latter-day Saints have the highest rate of weekly church attendance

No need for surveys or guesses. The folks at HQ know exactly how many members are in church every week. All they need to do is share with the rest of us. (Like many other churches do)

Re: Mothers in Zion - why they're leaving

Marcus, I personally know 5 women who commented on that post, where it was their first time vocalizing the deepest feelings of anger and frustration in a public forum. First time ever. I’ve spoken with 2 of them. They are shaking with a mix of overflowing rage and excitement about discovering a coll...

For some reason, this post reminds me of Father's Day. Because dad jokes are how eye roll.

I have some pretty strong feelings about Father's Day. I look forward to celebrating it this weekend.
LOL!!
