That has been my supposition, as well. When comparing Blavatsky's 
"inspired" writings vs. her other writings, and comparing Bailey's
"inspired" writings vs. HER other writings, one can see what sort of
things might be edited out. I, for one, notice that Blavatsky made a
concerted effort to supress her personal prejudices; Bailey does not
make anywhere nearly as much of an effort. Her fundamentalist Christian
background, her racism and religionism are apparent in her unchannelled
writings, and can be found in the channeled works, as well, once you
know what to look for. Which, in turn, makes it easier to find the gems
among the chaff (of course, I find far more chaff than most, but that
could be my OWN prejudices....)
