      Hey DougenHauser, a question: are you a lawyer?

There are many stories here from bitter people but they have just one side of the story. This certainly does not constitute proof of anything. No one has the right to use these stories as justification to use slander on this forum.

So if you can not stand criticism about SY - (anyway no one is going to insult your family neither yourself - and if someone does it the moderator will intervene and banish that person ) - better bid adieu right now. I think that fairly enough there have not been attacks ad hominem in this forum. Just a thorough - that's true, thorough review and criticism of all aspects of SY.

Insults towards Shri Mataji or the practicing Sahaja Yogis would obviously be offensive to me, in the same way that an insult towards any other member, their friends and family would be to them. What protection are practicing Sahaja Yogis likely to receive from the moderator of this forum?
