We can probably all agree on that.  But the recent issue has to do with an outbreak of witch hunting directed at "Blavatsky bashers." You have a pseudonymous committee of three deciding who is and is not a fit target for this inflammatory accusation.  And on the issue of personal names, they have shown a proclivity for using one particular name over and over in a most disparaging manner, while hiding their own.  People who post under pseudonyms hide from responsibility for their actions.  When those actions include multiple falsehoods and misleading insinuations, the targets are in a double bind.  Answer them, and more lies and insults will probably result; leave them unanswered and have them accepted as unchallenged facts.  I just wish these people would come out from their hidey holes and engage in a serious historical discussion with me and others instead of this childish and destructive namecalling.
