As you know, I'm not "managing" this group. As you also know, I didn't say anything about banning without warning or a chance for rebuttal. In this case, though, if I were moderating the group, I'd ban you for lying in this post. No rebuttal possible because the facts are indisputable.

Just like the TM Org bans meditators from joining a group meditation in the dome for attending an Amma talk. You and Doug are very scary people to be managing a social message group. And, the administrators at MUM turned out to be very poor managers of a spiritual meditation movement. It's ironic. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <authfriend@...> wrote : If it were up to me, I'd ban people who told documentable lies, including lies about what has happened on this forum. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : Apparently Xeno got banned from FFL, for no apparent reason, by Doug the modertor. On this Yahoo discussion group, if you say something the moderator doesn't like, he will ban you from the group, without any explanation or discussion. Just like the TM Org bans people from group meditation in the MUM domes, just for attending an Amma talk in town. Go figure. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : Sure, my vote would be for you to be reinstated as you're pretty benign (read that sometimes boring) but relatively harmless.

From Xeno on FFL-2 Xenophaneros Anartaxius As regards a Yahoo Group spiritualfreedomgroup AKA The Corner, certain people have been on vacation. I was near a beach in a Northeastern state; another was in a different country, also on vacation. Some us us have other things going on in our lives besides these groups. Discussions, when they occur are about the common or uncommon interests, and politics is not too much of a topic of discussion; there are two political candidates in the US, one will win, one will lose, and opinions concerning these are like flack during a bombing raid trying to deflect anti-aircraft guns. And JS is not there so discussions have an uncommon cordiality even when there is disagreement. We also do not have certain trolls which up the post numbers but not the discussions. If I could, which I can't, I would post occasionally to FFL, but Doug doesn't seem to like me. While I opposed his taking over FFL, for I think he has a religious rather than a spiritual mindset, I am quite capable of following the Yahoo guidelines. Sure, my vote would be for you to be reinstated as you're pretty benign (read that sometimes boring) but relatively harmless. But my vote for your inclusion would have to include the condition that you not tell us what those drones are saying over at The Water Closet. I can only take so much repetitiveness and ego. My keeping track of postings to these forums has basically one purpose, it gives me something to do on occasion; and I have an hypothesis, that there are more posts when opposing views are discussed, and even more posts when opposing views simply snipe at each other or others just post random comments that have nothing to do anything except their need to post. So, you are implying we are sniping instead of having worthwhile opposing views? I see how it is; you can't win with you. Too few posts and we are The Peak and all lovey dovey, too many posts and we are arguing for the sake of arguing but the dearth of posts at The Closet (IMO) implies a lack of interest and input by others which sort of reeks of a kind of incest. I hope this post doesn't upset the apparent death of FFL-2. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : I'm surprised Xeno has not been bothering to post (on one forum or another) the discrepancy in posting numbers between the Water Closet and FFL. It appears conversation is falling off over there. FFL is hardly a beehive of activity but the site is at 600 posts while the Water Closet is a dim 149. Come on boys, get going or we'll think you have nothing to say. Oh yeah, you don't have anything to say, or you've said it all before, or you need a new audience (which you can't have 'cause you are afraid to open your doors) or you're finding posting to the same four walls uninspiring.
