Ah, okay, it's quoted there a little lower.. but I had meant Marshy, the 
Ramana, and with 'they' the authors of the blog and Empty quoting it. 
Obviously, Michaels reference was to something else Barry wrote. I didn't get 
this (just get it now) :-)

 Diss might be an inappropriate term.  Generally, he expressed a vp that many 
Gurus have no techniques that compare to TM, in his opinion.
