In trying to make their point some really sink their teeth into a subject and won't let go, fair enough I respect the passion. What is not fair is spouting all sorts of ridiculous things, that show a lack of knowledge about how online sites are operated. And also not reading what others say, or if they do disregarding it.
The above is humorous, coming from someone who claims to have a Service Position here at this site and yet all you do Brock is make negative comments on those who you choose too. Why not share your own ES&H.... because it gets really tiring to watch what you do here in place of what a genuine Service Position is really about.

I do know quite a bit about how online sites are operated, what I think is that most online sites who use the AA name, do it with a direct break in AA Traditions. At 10 years sober I became convinced that online was just as good as Face to Face, I was a moderator at what was a site who used the AA name and had online meetings".....only to learn after one year, that it most certainly is NOT just as good and in fact, it wasn't healthy at all....and thank God that I didn't drink and got back to AA face to face.
And if I know, understand and practice how face to face AA Groups operate, then I am being a responsible and accountable AA Group member. Staying online only, brought IT ALL BACK....the anger, the insanity, the anxious, irritable and discontent feelings, living in my own head just listening to the committee yack at me. Finally, one of the AA members at that site, strongly suggested that I wasn't the same AA member who came to the site one year earlier....Yes, that AA member was so correct, but I couldn't see it, until I put my butt back into the seat at our AA home group face to face.
Yes, I Remember When.....and it wasn't healthy, it was insidious and it wasn't recovery.
And it's a whole lot less off putting, than giving the impression that they will have to commit to a certain amount of meetings per week.
Not sure where you saw that I said that? But it doesn't surprise me when you are misreading and the misinformation is attributed to me! lol
