Dear 100 Hour Board,

In response to Board Question #62060 I was wondering if it perhaps has something to do with a rumor I heard that men from polygamist communities sometimes come to BYU for school and to find more wives. Is that rumor true? And could it be part of the problem?

-One who finds polygamists uncool.


Dear uncool finder,

Please see Marguerite St. Just's answer to a very similar question, Board Question #62271, that was asked, lo and behold, only minutes after this question was asked! They are probably posted right now at the exact same time.

In any case, I think it's terribly sad but far more likely that the stories referred to in the question you linked (and mentioned by the writers and commenters) are the result of a percentage of men who are not being entirely faithful to their spouses.
