Hi Gary,
Not that Chuck needs any defending, but I enjoy his postings and believe them to be at times insightful through the use of humour, they also have the effect of keeping us all grounded.  The last thing I want to experience is a stodgy, toneless group that deify the Masters, HPB and Judge.

You, yourself, make some pretty powerful statements about what you believe a good theosophical site is,eg, a change of tone, social acceptability, in person groups (whatever that is), defined topics, etc etc.

In the words of KH (thanks Daniel, great reading)  "You have for some time been under deluding influences.
 Shun pride, vanity and love of power. Be not guided
 by emotion but learn to stand alone. Be accurate and
 critical rather than credulous. The mistakes of the
 past in the old religions must not be glossed over
 with imaginary explanations. ..."
 "The best corrective of error is an honest and
 open-minded examination of all facts subjective
 and objective... ."
 "You will have to leave a good deal of your emotions
 and credulity before you become a safe guide among
 the influences that will commence to work in the new

 Everyone's intolerance matters including yours.  I can for example refuse to acknowledge you and leave you or anyone else to their karma.  In this case I choose to acknowledge your reply.  For some reason you choose to play an opposing view at times which is something I see in a lot of my attorney friends, and that's your choice.  I think the "tone" within a sincere theosophical site is important.  Also, what I have thus far observed  only reinforces to me the continued need for in-person groups regardless of their label.  People get away with stuff here that would not be found acceptable within a person to person setting.
 Secondly, since I have participated in this site, generally all I have seen from you has been extremely little theosophy and a lot of cute-sey remarks that have not been very contributory or added much theosophical insight.   Your argumentative remarks really are saying more about you than about anyone else.  I look forward to the day when you wish to make more meaningful contributions and encourage you to consider do so.  These are my observations and if I see these so plainly do you not think other's do also?   Also, if you would please consider doing so, if you wish to quote me please do so in context of the overall theme and letter. Thanks.
 Gary B.

 You say that as though your intolerance somehow matters.
