About Ms. Hagbard's:

For me, in personal, are not just the ideas "per se" on the list,
that principally improve myself. See what I mean: The ideas here
exposed and developped are a consequence of the very good and
developped intelectual "cyber" companies to talk the list
provides... individually and in group. (It functions like a
ressonator or a chain-reaction knowledge chamber...) and the list
definition topics are in very good agreement with this...

(I have already entered in a disc. list - which I will not mention
the name... - which was intended to be of philosophy but was
full of religious and believers, some of them with not even
philosophical (and questionable) minds... Imagine now an atheist and
objective scientist (and masterate level teacher, so with no fear to
talk about certain subjects...hehehe) in the discussions: I felt
myself the own Hell's King ... hehehe... but very stressant...Know
you (if already don't..) that, worse than Hell of Ignorance is that
of those who "do not want to know...")
