    Yep, he'd do well to be more authentic on social media.

    Can you blame him. He is greeted with, be careful you are going to get the crap kicked out of you over here.

    Also, Jefe's daily count may be going down and he can't afford to lose folks like he used to.

    I know the core of this board came from CB through CG, but have any of the newer members been active CBers when they came here and stayed? I know some have a history at CB but no longer post. I was late to the message board scene. Before joining here the only message boards I were a part of were guitar/amp boards and boards of bands ().

    My point is that someone who comes here immediately after some sort of CB dustup is not likely to stick around. Happens all the time.

    That's too bad. I wanted to hear more of his thoughts about that Cook talk. This last PHood session was the first for me with my 12yo son and that talk was the first of the session. After Cook finished up, I turned to my son and said something like "I disagree with about half of what that dude just said."

    Great start! lol.

    Yeah, too bad. Let's hear yours and Sooner's thoughts about Cook's talk so we don't waste this thread.

    I posted on CB quite a bit and only found out about CS about 18 months ago.

    I assume that this is the paragraph that led Vicoug to rashly delete his CB account:

    A wonderful example of the need for moderation, balance, and wisdom is the use of the Internet. . . . The potential for good is enormous. We also know that it can transmit much that is evil, including pornography, digital cruelty, and anonymous yakking. It can also perpetuate foolishness. As Brother Randall L. Ridd poignantly taught at the last general conference, speaking of the Internet, “You can get caught up in endless loops of triviality that waste your time and degrade your potential.”
    I notice that when a lowly member of the General Sunday School Presidency originally made the comment, Vikoug (presumably) did nothing, but when the counsel was repeated by an apostle, it spurred him to delete his account. Maybe if President Monson repeats it in April he will hold his resolve for more than two weeks.

    Cook also said "refuse the evil, and choose the good" ... does that explain his retreat to CB from here? We are only left to wonder.

    Last Saturday was a great day. Left for Palisades golf course at 5:30 in the morning to play 36 with my boys and a tournament amongst their friends. Side note: it is a pretty good little course they have there.

    On the way home I got the chance to talk about the church with the 3 of them for the first time in a long time. I was a bit surprised to hear all three of them watched all of Sunday conference.

    I heard some interesting stories and the theme was, why can't they just leave us alone and let us attend and participate how we would like too. I told them because some in their wards really feel the need to get them back to Christ and others want them to have to do all the things they have to do.

    I also shared like you some of the teachings they don't have to accept as true after they asked.
