Nice post Ann. I guess it shows you can have sharp disagreements with someone, and still not resort to nasty personal attacks.

I have not turned on Lord Knows either on this forum or privately. I still consider him a very personal and close friend and he may have felt I turned on him when I agreed with Emily's post about him but let me assure you: whatever I agreed with her in that post for is NOTHING compared to what Lord Knows and Brahmi and all my other closest friends and I did to each other during our time together. We all lived through it, worked it out, moved on and grew ever closer as a result. LK and I have had our good and bad times, our accusations and our doubts about each other beyond what you could ever imagine so this "turning in a nasty way" not only did not occur as you are trying to portray and if you believe it did then you misread what was going on. There was a whole lot of private interaction between LK and I while this whole brouhaha was unfolding. You only know a teeny fraction of it. > > And believe me, not only do I not possess any "agenda" regarding Robin I have no problem accepting the fact that LK or anyone else believes he is exactly the same as he was at the height of WTS. I have no interest in proving anything to anyone about any aspect of Robin. > Remember, I am not the one who dislikes LK for how he feels about Robin - LK seems to be disturbed and possibly no longer my friend as a result of the fact that I accept Robin for something and someone different than LK does. Get it straight Steve, you have reversed the situation and got it wrong. Just for the record I am explaining how things are, for me, not how you perceived them. > > >Even to the point of outing > > his first name. That was pretty low IMO. > > Another example of getting it wrong and therefore jumping to a negative conclusion. When you know someone as long as I have known LK it is easy to forget he is not LK but actually (insert his real name here). So, without even realizing it, I guess I used his name at some point, inadvertently. I only know I did it because LK pointed it out to me when we were speaking together. I was shocked and horrified. Luckily he laughed about it and was very good about the whole thing but I was mortified. > > > > And I must say, that I can't help but feel that Barry has scored a > > direct hit when he states that you (and others) listen only to RWC's > > words and ignore the intent and actions behind those works.

I mean, if the rest of the world thinks he is still the same then chances are I am mistaken that he has changed.

I don't need to look at comments made by Curtis and Barry, two people who neither know me or know who I was 25 years ago or what being involved in the this cult was all about. In fact, in a nutshell, they know nothing about any of this. They are throwing out generalizations based on the fact that they don't like me and are attempting to make my willingness to forgive and move on look like someone who is still ambivalent about and somehow longs for a return to the old days. If I was ranting and bellyaching and rabidly denouncing the whole time I spent in WTS and against Robin would that make me look better, healthier, more "free" from the influences of the cult? > > > I can't help but feel that you might > > be having trouble seeing things objectively even now. > > Your prerogative. > > > > Oh, and kudos to taxi's points about how logic can take some > > funny turns depending on how it applied and what is filtered through > > it. > > > > On the other hand Annie, you've been posting some funny stuff, and > > I certainly appreciate that. > > I like it when people call me "Annie". I am not really someone who that name really readily pops up for but some have used it when I addressing me and I have always liked it. Thanks. I know you did it inadvertently or maybe as a slight but it is a name I could get used to. > > > > That's 50 4 me.
