    I am a Freemason, wear a Masonic ring on my hand.

    I am in my 20's, but wondered what people's general conceptions/thoughts/attitudes were towards us?

    How many people are in this group? Is it somewhat related to Illuminati?

    The only word I remember was Bozab but 1998 is a long time ago. You probably didn't have your first pube.

    If I'm looking for moral fibre I doubt my first port of call would be the local masonic lodge. Of all the many masons I have known and do know (I would never say they are immoral - but neither would I say their morality sets them apart from others.
    And that is the incorrect word. And even if it were, as a brother, you would know caution, not to divulge it publically, or around non-members.

    Give this charade up. It grows tiresome.

    Yes, I was always taught to be cautious. LOL! It's boaz.

    As I say, I'm NOT your brother. I'm not a FM and have no interest in it.

    Depends what you mean. Do you mean within a city, within the UK, or nationwide?

    No, it is not related to the Illuminati. There is some overlap/degree of similarity but beyond that, no, not a single thing in common.

    Oh? You were taught to be cautious? And yet you failed to be so, when you did not answer the question in the prescribed manner.

    And I repeat, even if that word, or the word before it, or any other word thereafter is used by yourself: the simple truth of the matter is, a REAL brother would know the need for discretion, and would utilise the requisite means to "maintain and safeguard caution". You have not.

    Does the master of your lodge know that you frequent student forums and flap your mouth off about your little club?

    My grandfather was a Freemason and very secretive about it. I have a feeling it was really a club for networking businessmen and not anything particularly sinister though.

    There'd be less need if I didn't have to repeat myself umpteen times.

    150,000 for Scotland, N Ireland and ROI....
    Not sure about wales....

    Started with masonry (i.e. stone cutters) in Europe, who wanted to protect their trade, and ensure they recieved fair wage for their skills.

    Ok, and the unnecessarily abusive PM with swearing in it? You weren't repeating yourself there, were you?

    So what's the purpose of what you do? Both the purpose on paper, and in reality?

    Do you mean, how would a Freemason identify another freemason, or how would a non-freemason identify a freemason?
