Most often when I get criticised for being off topic it is more because
some individual can't deal with what I am saying.
Once was on the autism group when an autist was reported as mentioning
good and bad halos. I replied that I knew a an ausbergers (sort of
autism) person who saw fuzzy or clear auras. I asked about any books
dealing with auras. One person mentioned Barabara Brennan's books with
the pictures of auras. Another got very irate saying I was off subject.
I replied that it is not right to deny what an autist is saying. I am not
invulnerable and I know there is a deep seated problem with certain
levels of consciousness. Perhaps certain discussion may start to open up
something which a hypnotist has implanted. Then we must come to a compromise.
How many people have actually left the list or do you think might?
Is the cost a problem, or is it the volume? As volume increase, with more
subscribers, or people chatting about similar interests, then a threaded
newsreader enables one to select subjects. That is how I read all news,
and sometimes I am pleased when an off subject topic comes up. I should
like to read the meditation groups, but have come to a little of the
discussion on sci.med. I haven't read sci.med for a while either, but wish
I am not sure what sort of article of mine got me invited on to the list.
I am interested in the chemistry of neurotransmitters. I would like to
know about their normal psychobiological functioning with the trace
chemicals in foods, without upping the levels say from hops to hemp, or
even to hops. But perhaps what I am saying is having too much of a
psychological punch and you want that regulated back a bit?
