I have posted the following response on theos-l where the above msg was also
posted. The response is my .02 feedback.

Varied topics on theosophy, theosophical organizations and theosophical
personalities have been discussed at various times. While everything that
goes on may be not have satisfied everyone, still it is serving its purpose
very well. Also from time to time, due to the openness and lack of
guidelines or rules, subscribers have posted information which are
unavailable from *any* other source. Some of the information some may not
want the world to know about it. But Truth needs no defenders and it can
take care of itself.
I am for status-quo, and if it is not broken, don't fix it. Let us not
tinker it and possibly ruin it.
