Re: Theos-World Re: A TS member's observation on non-existent Problem

Jul 29, 2009 05:27 AM
by Messenger


Everyone knows who Anton is.  It was never my intention to question his
identity. If there is even slightest misperception that I am doubting his
identity, my personal apologies to him.

In all my messages posted here and elsewhere, I speak only for myself. This
I have stated before. This continues today and will be so in the future.  I
am just an ordinary member and I have not held any office nor plan to hold
any in the future. So my position should be clear to everyone.

I signed as Messenger so that no one confuses between message and the
messenger. As I mentioned in my msg, I will soon post a msg discussing the
issues, in my opinion, important to the TS today. Please keep tuned.
