Funny, I haven't seen anything on the opening page about it not being permitted to question negative views of MMY/the TMO/TMers. Apparently Barry believes that's how it should be, though. And > it *was* that kind of environment for a long time. Yup, there was never any questioning of negative views of TM before I got here, right, Barry?

Since I got there, Barry has been one of the prime instigators and perpetuaters of the wars. comes > zooming over to Fairfield Life and starts trying to do > the same thing here. > > Have you *looked* at alt.meditation.transcendental lately? > Even *Judy* hasn't bothered to post there for over two > weeks.

You see, to have considered whether there might be some truth to something advocated by Barry, and decide there wasn't, in Barry's mind is the same as never having considered it at all. > Judy is OUTRAGED that there is a place where people can > express their ambivalent feelings about TM honestly, > without being *punished* for expressing them.

Anybody who's been paying attention knows that I don't comment on the vast majority of the negative criticisms here of TM/MMY/the TMO.
