And it looks like that is the case (thanks folks)!
I tried the link you provided, seems to only take you to a FB login screen. Seems you must have to have a FB account to participate ?
Me, refusing to take ANY part in the whole FB scene, won't be going there. Sorry.
But yes - poly ignorance is rampant. But it seems to be 'coming out'. It seems the most important phase right now is spending time dispelling the mis- perception that anyone that screws more than one person is 'poly' !
Seems we spend half our time here blowing holes in that myth and trying to educate people to the more complex nuances of making a life with more than one person in a truly loving & nurturing way.
