Baha'i rift: Baha'is upset with Orthodox Baha'i Faith May 18, 2009
Original article discussion on Topix:

Sometime in early June 2011, the discussion thread on , based on a Chicago Tribune article, was deleted withf over 4,600 messages on the Baha’i lawsuit against several Bahai denominations. Many participates suspect the Haifan Baha’is are involved in its demise. Notice the large number of other older Baha'i threads on Topix that are still included. Haifans have done this kind of thing for many decades, on and off line, rewriting history... so the court case that has been won is a very historic victory.

I saved and repost below all of my messages that I think of as important to preserve knowledge of the issue and the discussion on Topix, because I've seen the Haifans do this consistently over the years, having knocked repeatedly my own website off the Net, early on, way back into the late 1990s, and other forums, rewriting history. Obviously, the loss of over 4,600 messages from various points of view, and with participants from several Bahai denominations, is quite a revision, to say the least. The Hafians have been desperate throughout the proceedings to keep all information off the Internet about the lawsuit. Initially, there were numerous appearances of the Chicago Tribune article all over the newspaper Internet sites, but most of them have also been deleted, as was one comment critical of the Wilmette Baha'is. I preserved the links to them at the second link, along with the criticism, here.

I again invite the reader to reflect on the nature of the Haifan Baha'i denomination. After the US Federal Courts of Northern Illinois ruled against it THREE TIMES, Wilmette Baha'is appear to have taken over and destroyed the Topix Forum that Bahais of several other denominations had used for over three years to discuss the lawsuit against them. This type of fanatical tactic is exactly what Haifan Baha'is have done for many decades, as extensively documented on this website and elsewhere on the Internet. That the Wilmette Baha'i nsa would demonstrate such unmitigated contempt for the ruling of the Federal Court system, probably through Baha'is working in one way or another under the "Continental Board of Counsellors" for "protection and propagation," should give thoughtful people reason for serious concern.
