I can't help thinking of all the discussions I found tedious
without saying so: rounds and races, aristocratic bloodlines,
Fundamentalist Christian vs. Theosophist (actually I did say so then), CWL's
misdeeds, and many more.  But then surely many of the
discussions I found fascinating-- TS political corruption, ES
domination, morality in Theosophy, Alice Bailey, PC language-- others found

Let's not put down one another's interests.
