SriSri’s PR man on our blog every bit as deceitful as his Master!!
Many thanks to our readers who have sent us great posts and comments about AOL illegal financial activities. Please keep on sending these. We will post these in coming weeks and months and let’s hope that Govt agencies and Media start investigating the issues raised in the interest of protecting the general public from a fraudulent organization masquerading as a charity. Now through this blog we can share our experiences and connect the dots. We are no longer isolated and can validate that the unethical, deceitful and illegal AOL activities are not confined to any particular country or centre.
But in this post I want to talk about something which is both amusing and extremely revealing about AOL and we need to be aware of it before continuing our journey in this blog. As some of you have already noticed, we have recently been graced with the presence of an AOL PR man in our blog, who seems to have taken a full time job just to deal with this blog. As he is representing his master, the great conman SriSri, he has behaved in a manner befitting of his master, i.e. with total dishonesty and cunningness and in an abusive and threatening manner, typical of AOL inner circle. This gentleman who posted around 60 comments just in the last couple of days, mainly under “Sudarshan Kriya notes” and “AOL illegal financial practices” and “The AOL Trance Is Broken”, used many different aliases, such as:
KLIM-Student, neutral-observer, Kate Lawyer, anotherwhistleblower, AD, Volunteer@SFO, Apple Fanboy, Near, Stop personal attacks on this blog!, Inc., Answering Financial Concerns from Art of Living-Fair Unbiased View, Ron, Jesus is the ONLY Way, and of course several times under Anonymous and Anon.
Some of you, esp. those who are more familiar with AOL tactics of dealing with any criticism, may have picked up that the writers of some of these comments were probably senior AOL teachers, pretending to be independent/neutral commentators! But you may have not realised that they were all indeed the same person, pretending to be many different people! I have marked all his comments with ”(aka KLIM-Student wrote:)”. You may like to go back and revisit his comments. You may find them even more amusing this time.
Our AOL PR man, started by introducing himself as Klim’s student and throwing veiled threats at KLIM. When that didn’t go very well with our readers, then he took on different personalities and professions and even different sexes, one minute Kate, next Ron. One minute he was a “faculty at Stanford University” gently educating us, the next a Lawyer threatening us or giving us free legal advice:
“Whoever wrote this blog, you better have a damn good lawyer behind you!!”
Next he would tone it down to:
“I think that some of the AoL folks are of course over reacting here. If there is something illegal here (I dont know about the exact nature of the copyright), AoL should go after this else not.”
“SSRS has questionable things to deal with at the moment”
to assure us of his neutrality!! One minute he was a Volunteer@SFO, the next he was a “seed investor” with AOL (hence deluding anyone still thinking of AOL as a charitable and educational trust!), all the time emphasizing his neutrality and that he was not a devotee. But somehow he was knowledgeable about all the financial aspect of AOL and had done “detailed study of their financials” and could assure us that “every single dollar is accounted for” and “AoL finances are audited by top auditing firms”.
One minute he was hurling abuses at our commentators:
“One thing seems common here-this a forum of peanut sized brains!”
“KLIM is a fraud and a “loser” (in every sense of the word) and you to seem to be similar…all losers do flock together”
“Sometimes it is good to get rid of some garbage……. “
“your crappy statement.”
“You > 60 years right?
“You sound like a bird brain to me.”
Next he was advising everyone to:
”Stop personal attacks on this blog!” “Jan, radha, Anonymous-everyone please stop personal attacks on this blog. This is a serious waste of time and a distraction from any issues. Both the pro and the against people, please show some restraint in demeanor.”
He seemed to have such exaggerated image of his own brain size (confusing it of course with the size of his ego!) that anyone with a different view point would often be described as having a “pea sized” brain (his most favourite abuse!) One minute he was aggressive and accusatory, projecting his own attitude to others:
“What i do find offensive is the many maligning statements in this blog which seem to stem from rather hateful elements.”
“stop being so silly and pathetic.”
Next minute he was polite and patronizing:
“Hope this helps, thanks”
“Thanks!This is good information and it actually does show some good progress . Yes I hope the VVM records can be shared too.”
While he was using several IDs himself, he was (wrongly) accusing other contributors of:
“same people posting under multiple IDs.”) or “Yet another post from possibly the same guy under different IDs?”
One minute he would accuse Christians being behind this blog, next he was a Christian himself :
”My church here in the US makes more than 100M$ a year”.
He was urging us to “use a little bit of your brains.”, but his reply to the issues were:
“@Mohit-are u a communist or a christian? !” or “Anyone funding this blog too? “
Quite often offering us an advice he could well use himself:
“Hiding behind a veil and making accusations really doesn’t lend any credibility to your accusations.”
“Random baseless maligning on blogs is not an intelligent way to look at the problem.”
One minute he was claiming: “I am not any sri sri PR agent or anything.”, next he would claim in an assured/knowing manner:
“AoL has over 10,000 teachers and less than 20 teachers (like KLIM/WhistleBlower etc) have left the organization. “
One minute he was surprised that:
”AoL is not pursuing legal action on this one!”
next he was the lawyer giving us legal advice, or shall I say, veiled and not so veiled threats:
“As a lawyer myself, I can state with a reasonable amount of authority that whoever has posted the sudarshan kriya notes and endorsers of the post do open themselves for legal action from AoL and possibly Copyright Protection Agencies around the world. There are so many examples where even the most sophisticated copyright content violations against possibly the most dubious organizations have been given judgements as per the law. Anyone and everyone pays the price for taking the law into their hands. This applies to SSRS to and to this posting and the endorsers too.”
Sometimes he would say:
“You think AoL has anything to lose by going behind this blog? If you think so you are silly.”
“AoL just doesnt have time fot this type of non-sense. But I think they need to go after people like the one who wrote this blog and set a precedent!”
Other times crediting us or Klim with AOL growth:
“AoL is growing in leaps and bounds and sometimes blogs like these actually help in its growth….In fact most people anyways wish aol were smaller and not so big!!!” “Actually in KLIM’s area, the numbers almost doubled since she left. “
He said goodbye twice, once giving us his kind departing blessing:
“Adios Useless Folks! Maybe you will be something constructive next lifetime!”
and then a second one to Mojo, doing her a favour of course:
“I will do you a favor and write my last post on this page. I really should have followed the advice I was given-”if you wrestle with a pig, you never win and you can only get dirty. Anyways goodbye to this blogosphere…Moving beyond KLIM bashing..I have better things to do in life!”
But obviously he didn’t have anything better to do in his life as he was back on the blog in no time, just hiding under a different name! He continued posting comments on our blog while reiterating what a waste of time it was for him or for AOL people:
“Whistleblower, even responding to this blog is a waste of time. You think sri sri has no better thing to do than to attack KLIM.”
“Anyways, I dont need to sort this out. Let AoL do what they have to do. I dont think people there dont have that time for crap like this. “
“Most AoL people whom i spoke to about this blog say that it is a waste of time to go behind this blog and many even discouraged me from posting things here.”
He said he hated to ridicule people, but he indulged in it to his heart’s content:
“I hate to ridicule people but I think I am going to do that with you now..”
His power of logic in determining the sex of our commentators was simply impressive, worthy of a Noble peace prize on its own:
“Married to RS! What a joke! Get a life dude-for sure this is a guy posting under the name Radha!”
He could even determine their religion or profession:
“Looks like this Dr Quentin Jones whoever he is is being paid to post anything anti-Hindu! Check out his posts on many blogs!Quentin Jones-And add a Dr title in front….These christian missionaries have no end! “
He committed the original sin (see my post: Original Sin in AOL & the final Salvation!) few times, expecting students good experiences be the silencer to any criticism. Interestingly enough, of all the available course photos that he could have used in support of his “Original sin” kind of argument, he chose a course in Pakistan. His ultimate proof were those smiling Pakistanis! Was that supposed to be even more impressive than the happy “terrorists” AOL quite often boasts about transforming, parading handful of them, as if displaying some captured wild animals in its zoo(Bangalore Ashram!).
Many times Klim-student frankly shared with us his purpose for being on the blog or his position within AOL, albeit in a self-denying style:
“I am not any sri sri PR agent or anything.”,
“I am not an official spokesperson of the foundation here.”
“And I am no “senior teacher” or even a teacher.” (Any guess re which senior teacher he is not ?! )
“There is definitely no organized agenda to insert random statements here.”
“Ok folks, I think this blog is becoming a Joke rather than anything serious. Looks like people are more interested in bashing each other on this blog than focus on any real issues.”
Many times he shared with us his dreams and aspirations:
“Mojo, along with skywalker and whistleblower you should be taken to court as well! Defend yourself there!”
(Did he forget Klim there or is Klim off hook now?! Mojo, I don’t know why he singled you out, but welcome on board anyway. You have now gone on AOL blacklist! Our court day will be any day soon now!)
And just like any other senior AOL teacher, he was very generous in sharing his wisdom with our readers/contributors freely:
“Jan=Radha= Dude…At least be smart enough to pick some intelligent names else post as anonymous!! “
Due to overindulgence in feigning different personalities, his multiple personality disorder reached an acute stage, so much so that within the same post he could no longer remember which fake persona he was assuming:
“I am hoping that this is a sane post which can be published to turn this into a healthy debate rather than a backlash. Also just to be clear, the Art of Living Foundation does not endorse any of the view posted by the so call pro-AOL people here (There seem to be people posing and posting as DSN teachers in the pro side which is totally not true). There also seem to be many people posing as teachers in the con side and we do not wish to comment on that. I am not an official spokesperson of the foundation here but I have gathered enough information from people to make a meaningful statement.”
So, within the same paragraph, he was talking on behalf of AOL foundation, but also claiming that he was not an official spokesperson while carrying on speaking as if he was, in the rest of his post! Confusing?
In further feat of psychosis he would think he is the owner/moderator of our blog:
“Please note that any backlash based discussion cannot and will not be productive. A fair unbiased discussion is meritworthy. Personal attacks or insults will not be responded to.Thank You.”
Had we applied the criteria above, most of his comments wouldn’t have been published, he himself being the most abusive commentator.
Quite often his different identities would contradict each other. For example, one would say that all the ill publicity were due to:
“well funded character degradation attempts by christian outlets!! first a bullet and then a land grab case by a “paul” someone!”,
then the other one would say:
“but let us not forget that AoL was the one who initiated the police complaint”
Anyway, the above were just some of my observations of this AOL PR agent, who is of course (!) not a senior AOL teacher or a devotee of SriSri and definitely not (!) an official AOL spokesperson, but he is every bit like his guru and his organisation: deceitful, cunning and dishonest.
