Lies, or reckless disregard for the truth?

> Please note that Johnson wrote that mahatmas are also false persons.
That's a total misrepresentation, since TMR describes 14 *real* South
Asian individuals as such, and another 18 Western and Middle Eastern
individuals as adepts. That *stories told about the Masters contained
falsehoods* does not make the individuals on which they were (loosely
sometimes) based false.

Actually, Daniel has at times praised TMR for doing that, in between

That's another lie. I operate no business.
It's business, not a campaign for ideas,

Copyright is held by the State University of New York. My last royalty
check was for $4.75-- for an entire year's worth of sales. Would you
seriously say that every university press book is "a business, not a
campaign for ideas" because it is not distributed free online? That's
nothing but a desperate smear tactic.
This kind of mud-flinging, without even a trace of effort to find out
whether or not it is true, is all too typical of theos-talk and has
been since its beginning and back into theos-l. Honestly, the
willingness of people who have not and will not read a book to make
public false pronouncements about it is the most amazing thing about
all this Theosophical anti-intellectual madness.
