Sometimes it's very difficult to let another opinion be, especially
if we feel very strongly about the issue. Sometimes we are ashamed
about that, but it's human. I am certainly closer to Mish's point of
you than to yours and I'm sure it shows in what I write! :-)

and, well - you had a different statement from ours to make, and that
is ok. And bear in mind the purpose of this site here - to vent and
criticize. I just don't like the apologies about Eckankar (and I'm
sure you know that by now ;-)) ), but I understand much better now
where you come from after you have explained why Eckankar was so
important to you.

Truthdecider, and don't apologize for it!
