Thanks for your sound common sense!  Those who went before us - just as
we do - made mistakes.  Some of believe we should aknowledge them *and
point them out* when they are discovered.  Unfortunately, for some
theosophists our forerunners have acquired an almost "holy" and
"infallible" patina which historical enquiry does not justify.  Such
attitudes do the theosophical quest great harm, IMHO.
