Actually, yes, I've always found Robin completely believable. Never have seen anything in his posts that made me suspect he might be dishonest. And as some here will recognize, my antennae for dishonesty are very sensitive.
(One of the things that made Barry so nervous about Robin was that Barry had such difficulty discerning when Robin was being ironic.) Robin's posts are not my only sources of information about what happened when he was in Fairfield, BTW. As far as defending oneself is concerned, I explained my stance on the ethics of badmouthing a person behind their back to Share. That isn't something Barry is capable of understanding, I'm afraid. But then neither is Share. Why Barry would think any of the "facts" he mentions (not all of them are, in fact, facts) should have anything to do with what I said to Susan about Robin will have to remain a mystery. They look more like a random collection of badly aimed potshots than relevant comments. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, turquoiseb <no_reply@...> wrote: > > Not to *mention* the fact that Judy has *never* been > involved with the TM organization, wouldn't know what > happened or didn't happen in Fairfield on a bet, has > never met *either* Maharishi or Robin, and her opinion > of Robin is based almost *entirely* on what *he* has > posted here.
