Will one of the several people posting in this thread who are affiliated with NXIVM please give a clear explanation of what NXIVM is?
The only reason NXIVM makes me uneasy is that I have no idea what it is, and no one is giving a clear answer. Even if I hadn't seen the rumor websites or read this forum, if I'd stumbled across the NXIVM website or read any of your descriptions of the organization thus far without any other outside information to influence my opinion, I'd still be very confused and a little creeped out.
I'm positive that's the reason several groups were uncomfortable this weekend. Not because they necessarily believe the rumors, but just because no one from NXIVM can step forward and say, "We're not that, we're this:" and complete the sentence with something other than vague praise.
What does NXIVM do? In clear, concrete terms? Can one of you please ease our minds? Otherwise, I believe your pleas for an end to the worried speculation are just going to go unanswered.
