Apparently, I've missed several postings since other posts, such as the
one below, are showing up with people responding to messages I've never
seen.  This is the second one I've come across.  I'd like to respond to
this one, but please be aware I've not seen the original - so my answer
might end up being unrelated.

Yes, I loathe censored material.  I want to hear all of what a person
wants to say - whether I disagree or not.  What someone considers worthy
of deleting may, to another person, be valuable insight.

I'm sorry, Liesel, but I do know, this time for sure, what I am
revolting against - a child molester (CWL) and, most importantly, the
sheltering of this child molester.  And if CWL actually slept with any
of his students (which evidence does point to) - who was not yet an
adult - then, he is, by penal and moral law, a rapist.  But could he
still have been a genuine clairvoyant?  Yes.  Did pen geniune words of
wisdom and worth? Yes.  But the more one knows, the more responsible
they are - hence, the actions of CWL and the inactions of the TS are
even more grievous.

What is of interest to one Theosophist is may not be of interest to
another.  I hope you do find happiness on ts-l, but I would never be
fulfilled on a list where what I could read was chosen for me.

Thank you for addressing my questions anyway.
