Who is the person who provided you with the response?

The members newsletter put me in touch with the New Zealand theosophy society
groups newsletter of scientists, put out by Hugh Murdock.
I also saw it. I noticed that it seems to be a closed group. Can some one who has seen the past issues comment on how independent are the articles.
