I understand, Eric, and I want the best for him. 'm only asking you to respect my wishes as a courtesy in this case. Nothing is stopping you from starting your own forum to promote whatever you wish, of course, and I bet you’d be succesful. If you do that I hope you’ll still post your gifting reports, here.
I forgot to mention that DB saved our lives and/or kept us out of prison, twice, by telling Carol and I in advance of police efforts to frame us for drug possession and a Vryal effort to frame me for murder. We got good confirmations, each time.
Everyone on EW is accountable, which is as it should be. If someone refuses to be held accountable I’d rather that person not be promoted here, because then I’m accountable for that person, no matter who is promoting him or her.
This is an inescapable aspect of conducting a public forum about material that threatens the corporate world order’s hegemony. If I were to sponsor DB right now, our readers would have the impression that I’m sponsoring fundamentalist Christianity, doomsaying and other things that he’s now affiliated with which don’t relate to what you mentioned. I think this is what Dirk is referring to.
I’d rather draw attention, as you just did, to his earlier pursuits because I want to be sure he gets credit for all that. If you start a forum you’re going to get an initiation into some of the social dynamics that go along with being held accountable for personal integrity. If this were an easy job there would be more people doing it.
