Years ago, NDN ran a board called "Pro-Family". We would find a Family member who was willing to be the Coordinator and allow discussions regarding what good things The Family was accomplishing. Of course, ex-members were allowed to go on the board and question these good works.
In almost every case, the Coordinator ended up leaving The Family after a number of weeks. It finally got to where we just couldn't get keep anyone long enough to have any continuity. So, we closed it.
It is apparently very difficult for Family representatives to face questions from the outside world on a regular basis, and keep their "faith".
