If you took anything in my post as vitriolic or as taking you to task then that's your problem, not my mine. I was merely making an observation and suggestion, and there was nothing vitriolic (caustic or hostile) about it, imo. If you choose to intrepret that as an attack on you, then you are just as guilty of being overly sensitive as you imply others are, imo. What's wrong with asking you to post some of your writing, which was the only purpose of my post and which OT2 didn't seem to have any problem understanding?

You ask: "What happens if I put forward an idea that is not totally 'acceptable' - do I get villified?" Well, hopefully what happens is that there is a debate in which your idea may very well find its critics, maybe even some will go overboard and villify you, but that's the nature of the beast, being a public internet chatboard.

I don't expect you to apologize for being an expert, but when you call yourself that, saying that you have expertise (professionally speaking) in this highly controversial field of cults/new religious movements, then I don't see what the problem is asking you to post some of your work, or at least direct us to it so we can benefit from your ideas , one way or another.
