And you are pronouncing big-time judgement on the rest of us.  Is that not

I would say there are some very strong egos on this list.  It has taken
them a long time to get where they are and as a result they are very
independent-minded Theosophists.  Having reached that point, probably most
of them have surrendered their egos, in some measure, to the Higher Self
and are using those egos for humanity.  Behind the ego mask, they have
decided to form this list and as a united international group, discuss
matters that might help TS survive.

Can you show how the removal of ego and attraction to the atman is going to
help us in the modernization and updating of TS around the world?
