River Morgan tried to join but was foiled by the tricky code when she went to register. She said she may try back again later. hopefully she does.

I remember avatars better than names... we had Dale from King of the Hill and Highlander? With something like a hub cap on his/her head. I honestly don't know what show the character was from.

Seems like if they want to be here they will find their way :)

I was hoping he would finish his General Conference reviews.

Nope, korihir told me about it a few days ago, and I finally had time to sign up and start commenting today.

Perusing through this thread, I've been somewhat fascinated at the emotions it has brought up in me. It brings back memories of sitting in Bishop Councils while people ask "Where is so and so?" or "Anyone heard from such and such? I haven't seen them around". While I generally am not a big fan of this word or it's implications, I can see it's usefulness in describing this onset of emotions. I think I've been triggered.

I certainly don't ascribe any malice to the OP or those who have commented. I just find the parallel interesting and my own emotional response to the subject matter even more interesting. This says more about me than anything else.

I'm not surprised that no one has mentioned my old NOM identity. I was never one of the "cool kids". I'm not sure how that sounds to any of you but I don't say that with anger or anything. I was a true believer for a good chunk of my life but I always preferred being one of the back pew kinds of members. On NOM it was probably pretty similar, I was a back pew NOM attendee. That said though, I was a contributing member for over 4 years. I was never one of those prolific posters but I submitted hundreds of thoughts through the ether on the NOM boards. Seeing this thread has kind of emphasized to me how little actual human connection I've made with anyone on this forum in those 4 years. The internet is great, this forum is great, but it seems prone to reduce us to brains in vats. I know many of you guys but I don't know you at all.

I think I'm feeling a little sensitive to this because my human connections IRL feel a little sparse lately. We haven't attended church in years, and while those relationships were superficial, they were still relationships. We've barely heard a peep from our ward in that time. We never hang with our old LDS friends anymore. We've made new friends since but it seems maybe those relationships have been just as superficial. My family seems to be showing their true colors lately as selfish a-holes. I have a child who struggles with mental illness. We've been desperately trying to set her up with a social network but all our attempts seem to be falling flat. She says she wants certain things out of life but seems incapable of doing what's necessary to get it...it's all very frustrating.

And maybe that's the most frustrating thing of all. She seems to have a concentrated form of something I've had certain struggles with my whole life. I like human connection...but I don't want TOO much human connection. I read somewhere on here about comparing certain human desires for community to either sheep or cats. Turns out I'm mostly cat...although I've always kind of despised cats.
