Dear Katinka,

In the link you sent I found the following comment:
Erica Letzerlich started her own blog
as well. It does allow comments and it also has information like the
last version of the International Bylaws of the Theosophical Society
that she has access to (she¢s general secretary of the Greece section).
So far her main content is related to the proposal by John Algeo to
give the General Council the power to vote for the next president.
(That proposal seems to be off the table though). The main content so
far is people sharing their outrage at that proposal.

Did you wrote it? I am not the general secretary of the Hellenic section. Please correct it if you wrote. Furthermore comments are allowed as far as I know in most posts. No reason to allow comments on pages of the blog like about, or the international by laws.

I've become aware our general council is not as passive as it may

seem. See my post about some new blogs I've become aware of recently. 

I'm amazed we didn't find out about them sooner though. John

apparently started blogging in July.
