Dear Wes,

In a post to Brian/Brigitte you said:

After reading (or trying to ignore) the persistent "contributions" 
from this person over the past year or so, I have begun to realize 
that the best way to view such a phenomenon is as an impersonal 
force, that which seeks to separate, disintegrate, and destroy, all 
that tends toward unity and brotherhood. As a personality it is a 
cipher, protected by cyber space and capable of transformation to 
some extent, and camoflage. But as a force it is very familiar. It 
seeks a fight. It is unprincipled and gives itself complete license 
to say or do anything that will elicit a response, thus throwing the 
responder off balance. That is its victory. Take a look at the state 
of the world, the tremendous issues hanging in the balance for the 
whole human race. It wasn't an accident that Theosophy manifested at 
this point in the evolution of humanity. Theosophists have important 
work to do, and we can be effective, on inner planes and outer, but 
we have to be in control of ourselves first. So along comes this 
annoying stinging insect, and we get busy slapping at it, and forget 
all about the fact that our survival is at stake.
