      Hi, 12eigh!

      You make some very valid points in your post. But for the record,
      what makes you think that people posting here, have not posted on
      HCS and maybe been clobbered by those who dominate there? Perhaps,
      this is a much safer site to point out the discrimancies and also
      the domination of "one" group think. I believe a lot of individuals
      have left HCS, because of the frustration of not being able to post
      a balancing perspective. Also, a lot of stuff over there, I believe
      is not appropriate material for Truth-seekers and that it is even
      more insidious than Eckankar as far as leading people astray.
      Namely, the things that I am mentioning here. I am suggesting that
      instead of taking a person's opinion on such stuff, including my
      own, a person should do the research on such sites as Cassiopaea,
      David Icke and TRANCEformation of America. If I would post such a
      idea on HCS, I'd be clobbered by you know who! Frankly, I am tired
      of that. I also feel that HCS has a responsibility to monitor some
      of these strange things, because it looks like it is being condoned
      and encouraged. But, of course, the gullible of the world have their
      own responsibility to themselves and to not take the easy road by
      being readily influenced by those who speak the loudest and the

      Personally, I like Mr. Johnson and his book "Confessions of a God
      Seeker" is an invaluable tool, but his Bulletin Boards, in my
      opinion, leave a lot to be desired. I am also wondering where he is
      heading with his group and organization--but it's his ballgame. It
      seems right now on this site there is a focus on HCS, but there is
      also the focus on Eckankar--they are quite interconnected, so I
      think it is okay to opine on both.

      Thanks again for your post. I do agree with you for the most part,
      but maybe this will clarify why I for one do not care to debate on
      HCS. If I post here, some countering of those other sites that are
      promoted on HCS BBs, perhaps, someone will see this and decide to
      take a deeper look before falling for the spins. That is my purpose,
      but I leave it up to the individual. : )
