Maybe Alcor finally, after all these years, decided that the "public opinion" about them is more important than anything they would gain in court. Of course, I doubt they failed to consult with their lawyers on what they already can get away with saying and not saying. If they didn't, well, I am still of the opinion that Alcor should be more forthcoming with everything they do.
It sounds though, George, like you want Alcor to lose future members as a result of the LJ book. History, unfortunately, proves you wrong, if you consider the spike in membership after the very first TW publicity. Maybe LJ is really actually a secret operative of Alcor to increase their membership, HA. I don't approve of it being done this way, ethically, but it does seem that any publicity, negative or positive, works. There were actually, unbelievably, a couple of CN posts from obvious Alcor enthusiasts, who were applauding the publication of the LJ book for this very reason. I do not think that constitutes an ethical excuse to promote a work primarily consisting of fiction, even if Melody becomes Alcor's best PR agent.
