Subject: Intervention

It is somewhat understandable that Brian in his self-assumed role as UBF apologist makes many ex UBF members (or should I say victims of UBF) very angry, but some uttered their anger in postings which can be considered personal attacks against him. I think such personal attacks are counterproductive in every way. They do neither help Brian nor anybody else. Therefore I have deleted these postings.

I think most of us who know UBF from inside will agree that many of Brian's claims about UBF, like the existence of mutual submission or financial accountebility in UBF, or the non-existence of hierarchical authority or arranged marriages in UBF, are plain wrong. But I think it is sufficient to focus on these claims made and comment them, in an objective and fair way.

Concerning personal behavior, it is much more helpful to simply stick to the facts, such as "you have written with a faked identity a few months ago, why did you do that" than to completely bash somebody down saying "you are a crooked person."

Please remember the rules of this forum, and please think whether your posting will help anybody or rather create unneeded hostility. Treat others in this forum in the same way as you want others to treat you.

I hope everybody will agree with this.
