I can't agree, Smilla. I'd leave Gerry out of this as he is not a recognized regular poster on the board, or if he is then I have yet to notice that fact. Nor do I have any opposition to any public statements he has made about the church or Hubbard.
However, Veda has repeatedly earned disrespect upon numerous occasions on this board, both for his deliberate distortions of the views & statements of others and the many personal attacks he has launched against others with whom he disagree in an attempt to discredit them or promote his own peculiar conspiracy theories.
Veda has shown a preference for making arguments 'personal', repeatedly disparaging those he sees as in opposition to himself, rather than simply discussing the facts as they relate to hubbard, the church, and the role of individual board members and their beliefs. That is not a respectful or respectable approach to public discussions with others.
