Dear Mr Richard Taylor-----
Thank you for your email with the most insightful "look" into your
You wrote-----"Do you think you are owed an explanation for anything
about which you have a question?"
You wrote---"I don't see why you are owed a response."
Mr Taylor, I never thought I was OWED an explanation or response from
anyone. I ask questions---some people answer them; some don't.
You wrote---"You have not asked permission of anyone to engage in your
personal research here, nor were you invited."
You wrote---"I protest against your personal use of this forum for your
invasive academic research."
Mr Taylor, strange what you wrote. Did YOU ask permission of anyone to
engage in your personal research here on theostalk about the origin &
derivation of certain terms used by Mrs Blavatsky? Were YOU invited to
post numerous emails here on that research of yours? No, I don't think
so. And if memory serves me, a number of persons on the list strongly
protested your "word origin" research on fohat, etc. So are you saying
that you can do all of your research & post it here, but on the other
hand you are more than eager to censor my socalled personal research on
the same forum?
You wrote---"I don't see why you are owed a response, nor why you should
become aggressive and angry that Theosophists aren't springing up to
rush to your assistance.
You wrote---"You appear angry that you haven't made more progress in
understanding U.L.T. dynamics, despite my (at first) long and thoughtful
replies to your inquiries."
Mr Richard Taylor, I believe I've made good progress on understanding
what you call "U.L.T. dynamics" & instead of being aggressive & angry as
you make me out to be, I've been more than grateful to the more than
dozen Theosophists who have offered me information & documents with no
strings attached. Mr Cooper in Australia & a U.L.T. person in London
have sent me hundreds of pages of material. And others have also
helped. Quite recently, a theostalk subscriber informed me of the
whereabouts of more than 30 letters written by Mr Crosbie. Quite a
In regards to your "long and thoughtful replies" to me, you offered
nothing substantial. And I point blank told you that if you wanted to
share information with me, it would be with no conditions attached. Any
info that you gave me could end up in my paper. You never answered that
reply. Fine with me. I have more than enough information for my
project without you dribbling me facts with various limitations &
condition imposed. Thank you but no thank you.
You wrote---"So for now, Mr. Green, I will confine myself to criticizing
*your* behavior, and your use of this private discussion list. You have
begun with repeating the criticisms of others toward HPB (like Bharati
and others) and moved on to "unveiling" the private conversations
between William Q. Judge and HPB. (Which were already known and
publicized) Ever more aggressively, you have attempted to uncover
esoteric studies, and to criticize events and people in
No doubt, these are grave sins of mine!!!!! I thought (& I'd appreciate
if Mr Eldon Tucker would clarify this point) that this was a public
discussion list. In other words, anyone in the world could subscribe to
this list. No questions asked. Does one have to promise that he is a
true believing Theosophist who will not question HPB, Judge or Crosbie
to be a subscriber to this list? Sometime ago Ramadoss was harshly
criticizing the Wheaton TS & Dr Algeo & I don't remember you or anyone
else protesting what he did. Dallas TenBroeck has said negative things
about Mr Leadbeater on theostalk. Have you reprimanded him for such
behavior? Do we have different standards for different people on this
BTW, did I announce to the list that I agreed with Bharati's criticisms
of Mrs Blavatsky? And Mr Taylor weren't you the one who wrote me asking
me to tell you where the complete article by Dr Bharati could be found?
And I told you the web site where the complete article could be found.
Was that another sin on my part? How do we know what you intend to do
with Bharati's complete article? Should we question your motives &
Yes, Mr Taylor, I'll continue my research on the U.L.T., their claims &
their esoteric school. Your latest response is only an extra incentive
to me to dig deeper. And I also intend to post on theostalk my finding
in this area. . . . . .unless Mr Tucker decides to censor my
contributions to this list. But if he censors mine, I would expect that
he would also censor the postings of others including yours. What will
be acceptable & not acceptable for posting? What will pass the litmus
Although several other comments of yours are misleading & misguided,
I'll end my email at this point.
