    That's the best troll attempt you've had in a long long time.

    Knock it off. This board has enough problems without a dose of middle-age lechery.

    but maybe the age change will put a dent in the high percentage of YSA's going inactive.
    Increasing the number of converts really wasn't the point.

    It seems that LDS women mostly go to college to just get their MRS degrees given their lack of grad school.
    I don't think that necessarily follows, although there are no doubt plenty of examples of that. I think it points more to the fact that grad school is expensive and hard to justify if you're not planning on a full time career.

    I have an idea that the diminishing returns is due to the fact most of the easy fruit has already been plucked.

    I also think Harry Reid's dishonest image hurts the image of mormon's throughout the world.
