The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines "ad hominem" as "personal; (of 
argument) appealing to feelings not reason".

I do work for the Australian Section, but neither Radha nor Adyar pay 
my salary. In Australia, employees are allowed reasonable use of 
private emailing and web browsing, in the same way that they are 
allowed reasonable personal use of the company telephone. 

My day begins at 5:15am and ends at about 11:00pm as I need to 
commute to and from the office. I have the theos-talk url bookmarked 
both in my home computer as well as in my office computer. I do check 
messages at work from time to time and eventually reply to some 
during my leisure time but my personal computer time is at home.

You have accused me of being "paid presidential election campaing 
manager" and of "screwing election". I will ponder if I should 
consider this as something deserving more serious attention or as 
psychological projections on your part.

You continue to elaborate on speculations. Under the international 
Rules of the TS it is the President that authorizes residence 
(temporary or of longer term) at Adyar. That prerogative belongs only 
to him or her.
