My apologies to those who have been witness to the progression of this thread, and I believe a brief explanation of what has transpired is in order.
As those that follow this board can attest, the uninitiated are welcome to post questions and gain insight, the contributing Brethren (jhova note
spelling) are always quick to provide the requested information. The Masonic contributors come from diverse range of experiences, Jurisdictions and
age. This provides a comprehensive forum that has been most helpful as DTOM, Elf and others can attest. The point of our (ML, JCM, AK, L, et al)
postings is to inform the public first, and defend against those that attempt to misinform second. The overt detractors that have posted are not of
particular concern; their agenda is readily apparent. To their credit they generally admit to their prejudices, I have no qualm with someone who has a
differing opinion, no matter how wrong they are!
The same posters who resort to slander and unsupported arguments are ineffective and a nuisance,
nothing more. The final category are those that feel that they can advance their agenda by posing as a Mason. This conduct will ALWAYS raise the ire
of the Craft. The rapid response to LB and TBIHL in most unforgiving manner is innate to any Mason. Great care is always made to prevent someone from
passing themselves off as Brother, and nothing can induce uniform derision as this lowly act. I'm sure there was great surprise to those posters (How
can I have been exposed so quickly? I have memorized all the propaganda from the internet)being "made" for what they are... frauds. I guess there is
more to the experience of being brought to Light than previously thought. I have no doubt that there will be future attempts at this form of deception
and the list of pseudonyms of those that wish to distort the truth, these attempts will be in vain.
p.s. Nice Avatar AK, always nice to put a dancing pill with a name.
