If the internet is the future of theosophy, then maybe it is time to move
on and see how we can contribute to making the internet medium grow and be
beneficial for everyone.  I am for openness, but there can also be too much
of a morbid focus on something.  I did notice that on theos-l, there were
few responses to people making serious inquiry into their interests, be it
science, art, truth, etc., but tons of responses to past wrongs.  I did
like the frequent emphasis in that letter on moving on, on not letting
negativity hinder their work.
