Yes Brenda is also one of the GnosticThought moderators.
You have always been quite clear about the focus of this group. I
have no idea why so many people seem to misunderstand.
I do know from experience that no matter how clear we try to be
somebody will always misunderstand. Those who misunderstand seem to
talk (write) the most ;-)
So my point is it's certainly not your fault. You are and always
have been as clear as you possibly can be.
