Have you ever thought about why you spent time at Bolt- especially visiting the alternative religions board?
Even though I have a bad memory, I can take a guess that I went there becuase I could learn. There were people there of almost every faith. Of course, now, Bolt has basically segregated the religions to many individualized boards. There's a board for Wicca, Satanism, Buddhism, uhh... they have one for most major/popular religions. I think that's one reason that the current alternative religions board is very empty (that, and the oldbies who made it great have all "grown up" and moved on to other things in their lives).
