    I've been looking through a Blavatsky early "Theosophist" lately, and have noted her remarks about the publication being "non-sectarian," and open to articles from nearly anyone.  She did publish many articles from outside of Theosophy, - however - she _always_ added her own sometimes highly critical or explanatory footnotes.  This limited the number of article submission that were far-outside Theosophical viewpoints.  Being critical, and even highly critical or scoffing was obviously within her perspective of "non-sectarian." The Theosophist was an open forum, but it was not a _promoter_ of viewpoints outside of Theosophy, but obviously was a promoter of _Theosophy._
