I've watched this will some alarm because last time I was posting here I had to 
try to back down Jim and Nabby from creating fantasy ill-will scenarios about 
my personal life in response to me posting my opinions about Maharishi's 
teaching. It was an escalation of their MO since I began posting here. I am 
happy to see it resolved with Jim creating his own page while hilariously 
claiming that it was because OTHER people were not being civil here! I do not 
believe it will last any more than his participation on then other 
"enlightened" forum, but hope to be proven wrong. 

I think you were right to go the legal route because they were crossing a weird 
and disturbing line Barry. There is no parity between how you post here and 
what those guys were up to. 

FFL has gone through many different incarnations as strongly influential 
posters come and go. I viewed the end of the Judy era as a positive thing, but 
was disturbed to see how others escalated to fill the gap. Judy ran her routine 
in a much more interesting way IMO, so despite strongly dissagreing with her 
most of the time, I was entertained and prompted to write more many times 
because of her participation. That degraded in the era of the clique she led 
that involved the Share bashing era in the girl's locker room. Shit got weird 
and unpleasant, but worst of all boring.

I don't know where FFL is headed now but I am an optimist. I intend to report 
on my experiences tomorrow at the "event" in Alexandria. Last I checked almost 
800 people had reserved a seat. I had some contact with people from the old 
days who were kind enough to share their perspective. Although I remain a 
skeptic and am not really going with anything close to an "open" mind 
(overrated at this stage of my life I believe) I will go for the many layers of 
entertainment. One of the greatest aspects of the entertainment will be posting 
here about it. FFL has been a great resource for my thinking and writing. It 
has been so useful that I have put up with some people with unfriendly agendas 
against me here. It was the ticket for admission.

Sorry to see things spiral out so far here but I am encouraged to see the 
changes.
