A lot of people have left the OPF lately. I believe as Ben does, we continually need newly deprogramed people to contribute old and fresh ideas. But I don't believe other members need to leave just because of some on -line clash with another member of the forum.
The Orange Papers was my principle means of deprograming from the cult of steppism. I could see for myself there was a lot seriously wrong at this cult, you can feel the mental turmoil and hopelessness surrounding you at those so called meetings, but the Orange Papers seemed to clarify and verify what I had already seen for myself. I was introduced to the Orange Papers at the first MM meeting in the UK. I and another actually spent almost three hours discussing the revelations contained within the Papers and I began to realise how I had been frightened into joining a cult for life, a cult in which I had no hope of ever getting better, and probably would eventually take my own life. My deprogramming had at last started. I believe the OPF must continue for others to deprogram.
Friend the Girl has stated that 'At this point, the Orange forums is about it' So lets make it the Forum that exposes the cult of steppism for every victim. By all means develop other interests and take a holiday from posting, even leave if you want to move on, but don't leave because of some argument with a fellow Anti stepper....there's more at stake here than just you. I wasted most of my life, its too late for me, but for others its not too late
