The Problem with the Internet No recourse to Gossip

Anyone with access to the internet can diss anyone almost without fear of reprisal. Recently we have stopped blogging because people amused themselves by misquoting and disparaging our work. These two-digit IQ's, obviously jealous, with little or no accomplishments to their own credit, have taken it upon themselves to degrade and belittle almost sixty years' work that culminated in getting Wicca to be a Federally recognized religion. We ask those of you with negative things to get off your chest: What have you done that is positive in the Community? Currently those of you who are perpetuating myths are supporting gossip: gossip that has no basis in fact and is of a deliberately, deleterious, titillating, and personal nature: a shining example of an attack ad hominem. The ancient saying ordains: To know, to will, to dare, to keep silent. People spreading gossip do not know. They only have negative will. They do not dare. They talk but have no record of accomplishing anything on their own. And obviously they do not keep silent. We suggest that such behavior should not be welcomed. Further we suggest: Know the real Community and the facts. Have will to be positive. Dare to support your Community. Keep silent. To keep silent means to listen well; to absorb what you hear. It does not mean to keep damaging secrets or to hide truth. We are not advocating a culture of complicity. Blessed be those who recall the Wiccan Rede and live by it.

Well said Gavin and Yvonne. That is a good question you asked to wit "What have you done with your life or the Pagan Community" It reminds me of so many things. It also reminds me of my previous statement which was after a remark from The Witches Bible given by someone stuck on S.T.U.P.I.D. "Its about a Anthropological Theory that's obviously over your head, your obsessed with sex, or are you having a False Memory or perhaps true from childhood or are you just going through puberty even though you look over 20" I noticed your use of the word diss. While being Ebonically politically correct is absurdly popular in this country I think it precipitates one of its downfalls.

The internet is a great invention. Although it seems that trying to communicate through my phone is a horrible idea. For the electromagnetic waves also seem to wane and waver like the ones that rise and fall with the moon

Therefore I decided to make my comments in phases. If you don't mind of course. You retain the right to delete if you so please. But I came across an amulet around the same time that I briefly discovered my religion. It is the same pentacle I saw on the Wikipedia article on Wicca. Strange I thought for mine has three stones and three spaces where three other stones should have been. So that somehow led me here.

I guess I was just trying to thank you for all the work. -_- I knew the moment I read the Rede. That I should have searched sooner for info instead of wandering alone in the dark. Although feeling out one's beliefs is fun. Knowing there is a whole group out there is comforting. Will be back again soon to check for updates. Thanks again.

I like you Salvador. Smart fellow. I like what you said about electromagnetic waves wavering in your Smart Phone. Interesting enough I have the same issue from time to time. You have come to the right place and if you would like to collaborate on my movie "The Early Years" the first woman presidents college experience in any way shape or form let me know. The woman's name will be Anastasia Aurora Borealis Frost. Ana Frost for short. And this name will not be changed.
