Giving as few details as possible, I just found out that someone I was very close to left a while back, in a manner that sounds like it caused a nice big flap, too. So proud. :)

It is great to see someone you care about walk away from an abusive environment.:happydance:

This year we have seen several family and friends make this move. I see the families getting closer together and no longer fear for the kids.

Cool! I can't WAIT to hear what the flap was - hoping this person shows up here!

What a good feeling to re-find someone close!

Yeh, I hope they show up here too and I want to hear what the flap was also!

Just a few devil's-advocate thoughts:
How does one know it's the same news, not someone else who got out as well?
Or, the Anonymous mantra: Dox or GTFO.

In other words, while yes, I'm inclined to believe y'all, the healthy skepticism that gets people out of cults also needs to be applied even-handedly to the news and pronouncements we want to believe.

That said, I also respect the occasional need for secrecy. Secrecy just has its own costs. I hope eventually we'll be able to get verifying details.

Meanwhile, a provisional "Woo-hoo!" is in order.

Maybe they've already been here, lurking and that's why they got out! It's always good to hear that this forum plays a part in someone coming to their senses.

That's the point of my post!

It *is* someone else and yet it's "someone very close to me etc etc" ie. I got the same news on the day of the original post.

People will be getting this kind of news on a regular basis from here on out. There's probably a graph somewhere showing People In vs People Out, I don't need to see it to know what it shows.

I would love to see that graph.

Is there anyway of documenting more people leaving than joining? I suspect it's true, and it's almost entirely due to the internet, but who can prove it?

happy news indeed! :happydance:

I just found out three people I knew in the 90's are all out. Warms the heart. Really does. I can't make any claim to flaps being caused, but it's nice to know more and more people are waking up all the time, many *before* I had. :yes:

I will not be happy until the stats do what 'Ron' called 'a shot duck'
