  I think Mothering does have an official stance, considering that Peggy O'Mara is a board member of Maggiore's AIDS denialist organization, Alive and Well. Oh, the irony. http://www.aliveandwell.org/   On an unrelated note, I was extremely disappointed to learn that Gavin de Becker (author of The Gift of Fear) is also on the board   
I've been reading here since 2008, although I'm much more of a reader than a contributor at this point. In the time that I've been reading, I have yet to see a style of moderation that I think is appropriately moderate. When I came here, the moderation was suffocatingly strict and rigid, to the point where it seemed to stifle intellectual dialogue.

Wow! I give you credit for still managing to get outside under those conditions.  
    I was just about to head upstairs for a relaxing bath. I think I'll pass :) Anal skin cells! hahah  
I do not accept the Mayan Prophecy as a valid predictor of the end of times. Also, according to a recent study done by an associate professor at UC Santa Barbara, this fundamental "end date" may be inaccurate.      (edited to add this image...if MD can add his favorite, then so can I!)
