Dear Chris,
Ever since the creation of alt.religion.bahai, however, there
has been far less criticism and questioning on s.r.b.  I had
two or three posts simply not appear, with no word from the
moderators.  But later I did get a rejection notice from a
moderator for a post, so don't know what to make of it.
However, when someone says critical posts have vanished without
word from the moderators, I know better than to call that
dissimulation.  It's happened to me several times.
