Rick, don't insult my intelligence. I tell you what, I'll post the
appropriate law in a day or two for you, as well as Black's Law
Dictionary's definition of libel and slander.

Which principles, Rick? Baha'u'llah never meant his principles to be
applied into some fascist, Stalinist framework. And since neither you or
Maneck read Persian or Arabic, you have no educated idea how to
appropriately contextualize Baha'u'llah in the first place. And since
you are also both nothing but quisling functionaries of the system, you
are the last people on earth who are in any position to be expounding on
what Baha'u'llah's principles even are. So, go tell that one to your
priest, my friend.

What truth, Rick? This is a superb display of Twilight Zone logic, not
what I'm saying. That there was an attempt (and I say "attempt" since it
backfired) to malign me by Robert Henderson is a lie and the Ausssies
sheepishly pursued someone elses agenda??? Three attorney's wanted to
take the case here, since there was a case, but because I have some
decency and decided that I did not wish a law suit upon an old friend
(i.e. the Baha'i institutions in OZ), with my family's urging, held back
from pursuing it. Shall I have one of my former attorney's out here now
write your beloved leaders all a letter explaining the specific points
of the law in Australia both the US NSA and the OZ NSA broke in this
    And btw what's this 'good cop/bad cop' game you and Susan are
playing on this forum?
