Thanks Orange!

I like the new features.
Seems that some people are allowed to edit... I'm not one of them.

The orange color does not appear on the tag on my taskbar... That's still blue.

Looks like now you can see summary of edits.... cool.

You can also see how many people have read each post.\

Anything I missed?

Anti-Christ Theatre?

Rev B. complains about my posts but here is proof that another member does the same thing and no one complains. Here is the proof that Soberman has repeatedly posted anti-Christian post that have nothing to do with the anti-AA movement and that there were NO complaints. He uses the forum to evangelize - to win people to his religion which is Athesism. Should we call this "Atheism Thumping"? Below are links to his post to prove that Soberman has been given a pass by OPF members to promote his religious views that have nothing to do with the anti-AA movement. Why?

Short Attention Span Theatre?

Posting Bible-thumping religionist preach-a-thon malarkey here has nothing to do with the anti-AA movement and is inappropriate for this forum. Repreaching the same preaching here in a short time period is equally inappropriate and out of place, and it strongly suggests a memory span that doesn’t reach as far back as less than three weeks ago.

To Hell and Back!

Watch two short frightening dramatized stories of two men who died and left their bodies. Both are doctors with PhDs who believe that they literally went to Hell. One is an ex-drunk and physician who partied with famous people like Ringo Starr of The Beetles and the actor Hoyt Axton. The other is a scientist who was running from the KGB.

Problem for Orange---Screwball Blog Comment Entry Feature

I’ve looked at the order in which comments appear following blog entries here. It’s really screwed up. It isn’t chronological and it doesn’t appear to be based on any specific criteria I can identify. The first comment (chronologically) made will later appear as the 2nd, 3rd, 5th or who knows where? The second one made will similarly be bumped down to some irrationally assigned place in the “order” (ha,ha) and comments made later on will arbitrarily show up earlier in the order of comments made.

Stolen Boniface

Not saying this was done by steppers, but one might look at whether the church hosts any AA meetings:

The Word "Recovery" Is Misleading & There Is No Such Thing As A "Christian" Recovery Program

In his essay titled "The Twelve Biggest Secrets of Alcoholics Anonymous", Orange said, "The Twelve Steps do not work as a program of recovery from drug or alcohol problems." I agree.

Why do steppers call 12 step cults, fellowships?

Its just another example of deceptive recruiting

Praise the Lord for Spreading the Word Against AA!

Here are the latest numbers for viewers of my YouTube videos. I've been getting quite a few notices from viewers saying that they have shared the videos with other. Not bad for being posted only 7 months ago. I pray that they will continue to be a blessing to people. Praise the Lord!

He's BACK.....well sort of.......

So our friend Danny may have been temporarily silenced here (Who knows, he’s probably already back with a new name) but he’s still playing elsewhere. Right now he’s engaging on the Fix and he inserted foot in mouth so let’s hold him to it when he returns.
In this particular rendition he has returned as Subhuti on the Fix and here is one of his threads.

Drunk Driver Driving to an Alcoholic Anonymous Meeting in Major Car Accident Will do Jail Time

BY ASHLEIGH MCDONALD – 8 JULY 2014

A drunk driver who caused a head-on collision after driving on the wrong side of the road was on her way to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting at the time. Mother-of-three Briege O’Hara is starting a nine-month jail term after she caused grievous bodily injury by dangerous driving to another driver.

The 61-year-old, from Belfast’s Antrim Road, was driving over the legal limit and was on her way to an AA meeting when she caused the collision near her home on August 27 last year.

Rolf Ankermann interviewed by St Jude Retreats about all things recovery, "The Freedom to Recover" and the efficacy, or lack thereof, of the 12 Step Model

A big thank you to Annie Kochneva, Marketing Manager and to Michelle Dunbar,
Executive Director of St Jude Retreats for the opportunity to discuss recovery,
my book and AA. If you are struggling with an alcohol dependency and want
cognitive solutions instead of faith healing and powerlessness, check out St
Jude Retreats.......These fantastic folks simply get it :-)

where is everyone????

did everone decide that everyone else sucked? did a lot of ppl. recently get the boot? the fix is alive with the sound of comments, but nada ovah here? what gives?

Systematic deconstruction...

Systematic deconstruction of your personality.
Those who feel excessive remorse are more likely to submit to superstitious beliefs.... In other words, if you feel guilty enough you'll believe anything. The goal of the 12 steps is to to make you feel guilty enough that you will be willing to believe that sky daddy loves you so much that he'll keep you sober from meeting to meeting... One day at a time. Hopefully for the rest of your life.

Imagine that! A life of AA meetings?!!!

The Fix: Cohesion Between Stepper and Anti Stepper

Interesting, *very* interesting and well written, esp. for a Fix article. Again, Juliet hits it with her writing! http://www.thefix.com/content/can-aa-critic-and-12-step-advocate-get-along

Vey impressed w/ this young woman; she is an inspiration. Hopefully she will see the light regarding the creepy old woman who is only online out of spite and has no idea about addiction and or 12 step programs (Juliet, look into Anti-D, c'mon!) :)

Free sex

I’ve spent an hour or so each night for the last week reading over the OPF. A thought began to germinate in my mind, how can I (we?) contribute to the education of the public at large? Do I write letters to my government representative? Hand out pamphlets at the mall? Disrupt meetings? Organize an anti-AA rally? Burn effegies of Bill W in the town square? What? (Yeah, I got flippant, LOL)

Not a disease, a learning disorder

Maia Salavitz has written the definitive piece on addiction. In convincing fashion, she demolishes the the old-guard dogma and injects some common sense into the debate. This is the kind of fearless writing we need to counter step-speak and speculative "science."

Most of Us Still Don’t Get It: Addiction Is a Learning Disorder

The AA Voice is Loud--Merci to OPF

Alright. So I feel like I am being an attention getter on here, as this is my 2nd blog post of this month. Yikes and sorry for whatever creepy narcissism I am potentially spewing onto the OPF. Some of you know I started going back a little--and then a lot--and then a little, etc. I initially felt like I was being smart. I even read (I ithnk on here?) a meetings survival guideline. It was addressed to ppl. something like this, "If youre gonna go, then make sure you do this that and this, too." It helped. Plus I've been out before for like a full year. Blah blah blah.

Stepper Cult Joke

What does a packet of cigarettes and the stepper cult have in common?

BOTH ought to have a government health warning attached to them

Thoreau on Pyramid Schemes (like AA)

"As for the Pyramids, there is nothing to wonder at in them so much as the fact that so many men could be found degraded enough to spend their lives constructing a tomb for some ambitious booby...

"...For my part, I should like to know who in those days did not build them — who were above such trifling." -Henry David Thoreau

Truly Intelligent Religion-Mongers Can’t Prove That There Is No Flying Spaghetti Monster!

jimbattle---If you’d ever taken a college-level course in logic, you’d know that it’s impossible to logically prove a negative. I said it once a day or two ago and I’ll say it again now---GO BACK TO SCHOOL!

Who knows? If you did, you might even learn a thing or two---like how to correctly spell “Beatles” and grasping the concept that it’s impossible to logically prove a negative...for openers... although, I suppose you’ll probably just stay stuck in the anti-intellectual tarpit of your simplistic (if not retarded), sorry excuse for what you call “religion.”

Truly Intelligent Atheists Admit that You Can’t Prove that There Is No God. So Soberman Is Wrong and Here’s the Proof.

Soberman has been proven wrong by atheists who are much more intelligent than he is and (in this case) much more honest. What one of these atheists pointed out in the first 10 minutes of the video below proves that Soberman is being dishonest by pretending that he has proven to members of this forum that God does not exist.

Friends/Buddies from the Rooms

Recently, I have noticed a member or two on this forum seem confused about me keeping my connections to ppl. in the rooms. I still go on occassion out of loyalty. Admittedly, a very small part of my compulsion to return to the rooms is out of a kind of fucked up superstition or something. But mostly it is b/c I have known many of these people for my whole entire adult life (I am 40). On OPF and other anti 12 step Internet blogs, I have noticed and been active in the discussion regarding how ppl. in the rooms treat us weirdly when we stop going.
