It's rather a leap from a post that had some mistaken attributions of quotes (that were corrected by Robin a few hours later) to questioning Robin's reliability overall. Pretty much all of us get our attributions confused from time to time. (Humorously enough, in a post denouncing Robin for having mixed up his attributions in that post, Barry fouled up *his own* attributions.) As to "claiming to have been so important," the point of that post wasn't about importance, it was about the fact that Maharishi never discouraged Robin from what he was doing or cast any doubt on his enlightenment, until Robin did his number at MIU seven years later. And goodness knows the reliability of Robin's word hasn't been "unaddressed" here. The folks who found him threatening questioned it at every opportunity. Sadly, nobody was able to turn up any incriminating evidence. > A *lot* of the silly "defenses of Robin" on this forum > seem to be based on taking the word of a documented > liar. Remember how he claimed over and over that he > had never struck any of his students? Gee, seems to me we went over that in great detail just a little while ago, the last time you brought it up. That's not what Robin claimed, as was discussed at length. (As Robin himself said, "I did not deny something I knew was true. I denied what I was accused of.") Pretty ironic for the most egregious liar in the history of FFL to be worried about the honesty of others, innit? But hypocrisy has never posed a problem for Barry.
