H. P. Blavatsky commited many erros and mistakes? --- also in the Secret Doctrine?

Dear friends

My views are:

In the below link from the forum named "The Theosophical Network" we find a recent post, dated June 6th this year, by the Sanskrit Scholar and theosophical seeker David Reigle - stating that H. P. Blavatsky commited many errors in her writings and many times merely repeated what other writers had written.

Truth and Illusion in Theosophical Literature

What do the readers on this - less moderated forum - think about such a view?
Do they all agree with David Reigle's assertions?

I disagree with David, because he is not giving a fair judgment of Blavatsky's writings as far as I know and can read.
I would say, that Dead-Letter reading and thinking are not the highest aims to use, when seeking to understand H. P. Blavatsky's words and her motives.

A sidenote:
I do not respond on the forum named "The Theosophical Network" because of its manner of operating and because the moderation on the forum is as far as I am concerned not in accordance with the original principles as they were given in the Theosophical Society and in its and Constitution in the years 1875-1891.
The reading of articles given in the Society's magazine the Theosophist from that time aught to throw some light on this.
