What  do we have in theos-talk as a pattern these days? I will give 
you a few  examples as I see them: postings telling scholars what 
they can and what  they cannot write about a given subject; an 
attempt to obliterate dissent  and differences of opinion through 
open bullying, intimidation and  character assassination; an 
enthronization of H. P. Blavatsky as the  Apostle of the Ultimate 
Truth, and a merciless hunting down of those who  criticize her or 
who present controversial information about her work for  
consideration; a relentless, callous and coward victimization of the  
Theosophical Society with International Headquarters at Adyar,  
portrayed as the ultimate den of everything dark in the world; and a  
practical contempt for the essence of Theosophy - Universal  
Brotherhood without distinction.

Mailing lists tend to bring out the worst in people.  Someone who in  real 
life can be a delightful person who is fun to be around can become a  pompous, 
censorious, puritanical lunatic once they sit down at the  keyboard.  Which is 
the real person?  Both and neither.  We are  not saints, though I think a 
couple of people on this list think they are.
Of course being in the Adyar Society, the idea of it being the ultimate den  
of everything dark in the world sort of appeals to my perverse sense of  
humor.  But it also makes me sometimes wonder if certain people are not in  fact 
agents of the Religious Right, attempting to sow discord among Theosophists  
while accusing them of being in the pay of -GASP- the Vatican.  After all,  who 
but a fanatical fundamentalist Baptist would even care what the Vatican or  
Jesuits are up to anyway now?
I think Pat Robertson has people writing their mails under assumed  names.
