The thing is, Alan, I am perfectly willing to "agree to disagree" with
Leisel about CWL. But I will NOT agree to "shut up" about the subject when I
feel it's as important as it is. Believe me Alan, I'm getting information
out of France, Italy, and South America that make the pederasty a minor
fluke. What I object to highly is her constant stream of abuse and innuendo
because of my attitude towards CWL.She has gone so far as to accuse me of
"taking out my problems with my Father on CWL" which is pop psychology and
is kind of funny when you consider that the only problem I had re: my Father
was the lack of one.

As to "spotting the mistakes" Oh Alan that's my favorite method of learning.
It's the Rmana Maharshi "Nehti- Nehti_" method...I have always felt one
learns more by rejecting nonsense than any other way.
