I see two main things in what you write below:

1) You are indulging in discussing people, personalities, not the content of the earch for truth. 

2) You are being judgmental of other people, people about whom you have scarce information. 

If I remember it right, the goal of Theos-talk is not to discuss personalities, and that is why I feel at home here, since, better than gossips or personal accusations,  I prefer exchanging views of Philosophy and Theosophy. 


Best regards,   Carlos Cardoso Aveline.
