Those brothers who did it as an "easy" way to get it done have cheated them selves and many drop out within a year. Those who stick around are having a hard time filling the junior officer seats because they don't have a good grasp of what is going on during the degrees. Both physically as in the floor work and ritual and figuratively as in the meaning and presentation of the ideals of the degree.

I would never suggest it.

The best thing we can do for the fraternity is to be a good example of the merits of Freemasonry and be willing to answer questions from those who are interested.
I agree 100%. tom.
