It is quite humorous seeing SRB reject an article that centred on a
statement of Ruhiyyih Khanum's. But more seriously, by doing so they
have demonstrated that SRB is acting as an organ of the Baha'i Faith and
not as an impartial source of information and discussion. SRB is carried
free of charge by government, university, and commercial organisations
as a service, and this represents considerable monetary value. By
treating such a contributed facility as a Baha'i organ, the moderators
of SRB are effectively accepting donations from non-Baha'is.
