/Will you please stop posting this bullshit - we know you don't have a

Jim's new forum so you can report back here and to John Knapp on

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
