 Creators Of New 'NCMO' Site Change Focus In Response To Criticism
In response to the criticisms leveled at the new NCMO Home Page, covered by Mormon News last week [See below], the creators of the site have changed its focus to simply helping singles meet on-line. The site, who's acronym stands for "Non-Committal Make-Out" had come under criticism both for what some BYU faculty and clergy saw as an immoral service and for putting its clients at risk for date rape. BYU's police and Honor Code Council launched investigations, putting the site and its creators under threat of legal action.

 BYU Students Start Make-Out Website
Seven BYU students and one UVSC student launched a website dedicated to "Non-committal Make Out" January 29th. Started on a lark, the site, found at attempts to connect people who just want the "glorifying experience" of necking without being in a relationship. However, BYU officials are looking into whether or not the site violates the school's honor code and Provo police are wondering if it is legal.
