The only thing interesting here (below)  is that already in 1993 the sincerity of Mr. Caldwell was already under discussion. 

Since then, evidences against him have continuously grown.

Assunto:Theos-World Paul Johnson's First "Ad Hominem" against me....

> In January of 1993, Paul Johnson first wrote to me asking me for 
> certain input on his first self-published book about Madame Blavatsky 
> and the Mahatmas. He had seen the short annotation I had written 
> about his book in my own book OCCULT WORLD OF MADAME BLAVATSKY.
> My annotation about his book reads:
> "Highly speculative with numerous unwarranted conclusions not 
> supported by evidence; poor research methodology; interesting reading 
> but only creates another 'myth' concerning the Masters."
> I took the time and effort to reply and write to Mr. Johnson an 18 
> page letter and added appendices of relevant material concerning his 
> thesis on the Masters Morya and Koot Hoomi. In this letter of mine I 
> gave SPECIFIC EXAMPLES to illustrate what I had written in the above

> Yet after receiving just this one letter/critique from

> THE OCCULT WORLD OF MADAME BLAVATSKY, Paul Johnson wrote back in a 
> letter dated April 14, 1993 and questioned my motives and sincerity.
> In my reply to that 1993 letter of his, I wrote the following:
> " is not my intention to be adversarial with you. No doubt, you

> "Also in your letter to me of April 14th, you seem to think I have

> the validity of my criticisms, regardless of my own motivations."
> Yet even AT THE VERY BEGINNING of our correspondence in 1993 it

> At the time and to this very day, I could care less what his own
