How are innocent young souls like me and MJ going to learn what's right with 
the type of role models we've got here?

What is happening to FFL is we are getting old and cranky.  Someof us are 
approaching our 70s and some are already there.  And wehave some that are a 
generation younger (apparently Salyavin andMJ).
Yes, and I must say you lot aren't being a very good influence. How are 
innocent young souls like me and MJ going to learn what's right with the type 
of role models we've got here?

It is kinda unusual to watch a group fly this out of control. Usually 
moderators will keep things civil but then there's nothinglike a "free for all" 
either.  Some of us like to keep ouranonymity because we don't want (having 
been TM teachers)unwarranted reprisals from the TMO. Even Judy recommended it.
I think it's been quite civil actually, just a few resignations in protest and 
a few lawsuit threats. Could have been a lot worse. I blame all the spiritual 
detachment we have.

But anyway the place also has to keep up it's appearances as a"loony bin" which 
doesn't seem to hard to do.  :-D 
Remember, it's entirely your decision whether you are inside or outside the 
asylum!

 I'vewatched this will some alarm becauselast time I was posting here I hadto 
try to back down Jim and Nabbyfrom creating fantasy ill-willscenarios about my 
personal life inresponse to me posting my opinionsabout Maharishi's teaching. 
It wasan escalation of their MO since Ibegan posting here. I am happy tosee it 
resolved with Jim creatinghis own page while hilariouslyclaiming that it was 
because OTHERpeople were not being civil here! Ido not believe it will last any 
morethan his participation on then other"enlightened" forum, but hope to 
beproven wrong. 

I think you were right to go thelegal route because they werecrossing a weird 
and disturbing lineBarry. There is no parity betweenhow you post here and what 
thoseguys were up to. 

FFL has gone through many differentincarnations as strongly influentialposters 
come and go. I viewed theend of the Judy era as a positivething, but was 
disturbed to see howothers escalated to fill the gap.Judy ran her routine in a 
much moreinteresting way IMO, so despitestrongly dissagreing with her mostof 
the time, I was entertained andprompted to write more many timesbecause of her 
participation. Thatdegraded in the era of the cliqueshe led that involved the 
Sharebashing era in the girl's lockerroom. Shit got weird and unpleasant,but 
worst of all boring.

I don't know where FFL is headed nowbut I am an optimist. I intend toreport on 
my experiences tomorrow atthe "event" in Alexandria. Last Ichecked almost 800 
people hadreserved a seat. I had some contactwith people from the old days 
whowere kind enough to share theirperspective. Although I remain askeptic and 
am not really going withanything close to an "open" mind(overrated at this 
stage of my lifeI believe) I will go for the manylayers of entertainment. One 
of thegreatest aspects of theentertainment will be posting hereabout it. FFL 
has been a greatresource for my thinking andwriting. It has been so useful 
thatI have put up with some people withunfriendly agendas against me here.It 
was the ticket for admission.

Sorry to see things spiral out sofar here but I am encouraged to seethe 
changes.
