That is very good news.

If the monitoring is true, what is very sad is that when more than a year
ago, there were some allegation against Adyar past/present president(s)
which were factually wrong, no one from the US leadership came to present
the real facts set the facts right.

I took upon myself to post a detailed msg on theos-l giving the facts. I
also printed a copy and sent it to the International President and in my
cover letter I did point out that *no* *one* but myself came to present the
facts. Later I got a thank you note from her. One person also volunteered
to try to print it and try to post it on the bulletin board at Wheaton. I
don't know what came out of it.

The bottom line is still simple. Are the maillists and newsgroup being used
by TS effectively? The answer is simply no. By not engaging in them the
great opportunity is being missed.
