How to NOT read other peoples blogs or polls

Apparently some people on the OPF do not appear NOT to be able to read other peoples blogs or polls. Jim Battle, Jerry and NoAAUK immediately spring to mind as blogs or polls that some people DONT want to read, but there have been many more cases on the OPF previously. I personally just do NOT click on the 'read more' link if I dont wish to read what someone else has written, but perhaps some people have difficulty with this procedure.

Is this another 'boring' poll?

Alcoholism/Addiction Is Not A Choice

Some recent discoveries about the role of genes in alcoholism:

http://www.utexas.edu/news/2014/12/02/alcohol-gene-adron-harris-waggoner/

If alcoholics have a different genetic make-up to non-alcoholics, then alcoholism can't be described as a choice.

We are powerless over our genes.

re: the 48 Hours documentary

I'm just curious- how many people, other than me, nearly choked when they said- and repeated a couple of times- that members are free to disclose as much OR AS LITTLE about themselves 'as they wish'?

This sure as * wasn't MY experience!!!

The Raw Story and Alternet have covered the story 12 steps to danger

Times have changed, yes it is poltically correct to challenge 12 steps there are 386 comments alone on the RAw story cover of this last years story :12 steps to danger by Garielle Glaser , altenet has also done a cover on this story http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/11/twelve-steps-to-danger-how-alcoholics...

Most people who drink to get drunk are not alcoholics, suggesting that more can be done to help heavy drinkers cut back, a new government report concludes (http://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2014/14_0329.htm).

AA's holiest of holies. Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you made your 'gratitude list' for the most holy of AA holy days. Here are a few suggestions for you to thank "God" for. Select Agents Ebola Nuclear Waste Malaria Aids Cystic Fibrosis Heart Disease Stokes Weapons of Mass Destructions War Tarantula Hawk Bites Trigeminal Neuralgia Brainerd Diarrhea Sickle Cell Anemia Ondine’s Curse And my favorite, have you thanked your AA (Read: xtian) "God" for AA and the thousands of other religions, ever holding back the progress of humanity, stifling science that finds solutions to these and other problems.

Holidays: another "casualty" of A.A.

One of the first oddities I noticed when I first became eyeball-deep in Steppers was their tendency to refer to A.A. and N.A. as their 'real' family or their 'true' family. Some of the individuals regularly associated with their blood-relatives, which in my POV meant they were hypocrites. While my family retained our sense of Family, holidays as we knew them to be disappeared.

Jesus alive & well in Murgon

Not one comment. Pussies.

AA creates so-called 'alcoholics' and kills drunks.

Psychological abuse and religious indoctrination. Nothing more, nothing less. Carry on. Oh yeah, fuck off and die @nus.

Why Doesn't AA Shut Down The Orange Papers?

Orange's latest blog post suggests that anyone with decent IT skills and a grudge against this site can put it out of action with very little effort. That being the case, and given that AA is a malevolent, wealthy cult with influence that extends far and wide (according to the Orange Papers), why doesn't AA simply shut the site down for good?

Perhaps it doesn't do so because it is simply a self-help group with no great power, influence, or desire to harm its detractors?

Dull, I know, but true.

Problems on the site

This is old news, but I'm going to post it anyway just to clarify the issues:

A bunch of people emailed to me to say that the web site was down. Thanks for all of the messages, although I didn't see them until it was all over.

Orange..links on website

Hi Orange,

I'm unable to open http://www.orange-papers.org/orange-root570.html#Dinger

I found the link @ "Added more documentation about the Catholic Church banning Dr. Frank Buchman's Oxford Group and Moral Re-Armament, here."

I'm interested in reading that and also want to give you a heads up.

Thanks!

The Freedom to Recover

is a good easy read. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to recover from an addiction or deprogram from being a 12 step victim. Come, take back your power. Thank you Rolf Ankerman. I hope more people write more books. :-)

The Gang of Four is no more

The Gang of Four have left the OPF, although one ex-member has publicly relapsed.
