I was CM until 2000 and FM frm 2001 - 2003. The CM Family definitely no longer FFs. Can't speak for all FMers as they are free to pretty much do as they please as long as they keep tithing etc.
As far as special treatment for important "Kings", yes, I am certain that this still happens in certain places. In the mid - late 90's I lived in a home that a "King" visited a couple times a week to "share" and read with one of the FG women. She was definitely CM and his wife had certainly not given her blessing. :-)
The above is not proof that FFing still is going on though - certainly not FFing as it used to be. It's kind of a mix of FFing and the LOL in what leadership consider "special circumstances". LOL because they are giving the King honorary status so he can be included in the practice of "sharing" - FFing because the "Kings" wife is not included in the decision. Kind of contradicts the whole LOL thing but whatever...
