Carlos' Vague Replies to My Detailed Comments about Editing of VOICE

The late Dallas TenBroeck once wrote on Theos-Talk:

In U.L.T. I don't have to worry -- the originals are available on a
reliable basis . . . . Personally I would rather deal with
H.P.Blavatsky's 'mistakes' than with those created by others who have
had the temerity to believe they knew better than she did, and had
the audacity to introduce changes which she did not authorize. . . .


I have already given detailed evidence and specific examples showing 
that the Theosophy Company's edition THE VOICE OF THE SILENCE has 
been EDITED with many resulting changes.  See:

Carlos Aveline's 3 replies to my postings of this information are 
brief, vague and basically ignore the detailed evidence.  See 
his "replies" at:

I would say that if one calls the editing of the 1893 edition
of THE SECRET DOCTRINE a good example of "tampering" then I would say 
that the TC edition of HPB's VOICE falls into that SAME category 
of "tampering".

One need only look at a number of examples in both books to see that 
the same kind of editing has been done.

Also consider the following:

Is there a note in the 1893 edition of THE SECRET DOCTRINE that tells 
or warns the reader that editing and editorial correcting, etc. has 
been done?

Is there a similar note in the Theosophy Company's edition of HPB's 
VOICE OF THE SILENCE telling or warning the reader that editing and 
editorial correcting of HPB's text has been done?
