Let us NOT equate or compare the Masters not using their real names to those
who hide in Internet under pseudonyms, There were many who have met the
Masters in flesh and they can vouch for their existence and their motives
and long term objectives. Those on Internet are simply ordinary people who
do not have courage or guts to put their name where their mouth is.
Since the circle of theosophists who are knowledgeable is very small, it is
very hard to hide because most active theosophists know each other - at
least in cyberspace if not in flesh and blood.
Already in the theosophical grapevine many are speculating about the real
identities. Most likely, even the targets may be aware of it.
If anyone of those targets, want to get out of the hanging cloud, the most
effective way is to post a public message that they are not the persons
behind the pseudonyms.
Till that happens, speculation will go on and on, till one day, accidentally
the real identity is discovered and when that happens, all that has been
written in the past will come to haunt them and destroy their credibility.
Internet is like akashic records and what is recorded is going to be there
It is up to the individual theosophists to decide what they want to do. If
anyone wants to post a disclaimer here, they are indeed welcome to do so by
signing up on theos-talk.
Let us keep tuned...........
