Some good folks got a little impatient with me, a few years ago, when I held their feet to the fire a bit regarding their casual recommendation of trying wax for orgonite instead of resin. In several postings, I went thru the entire history of how all the various materials were tried and tested but only the solid, crystalline organic matrices actually worked but, sure enough, there was a small stampede to make orgonite with wax and apparently the poison mongers on other forums energized this even further by incessantly promoting wax.
The latter dynamic has done a lot of damage to this movement, which
is why I bring it up from time to time. I do that even though it
irritates some good folks and if I were running in a popularity
contest I wouldn't dare do stuff like that, of course
I want to share the following with you to demonstrate that it's been
useful for me to harp on stuff like this to some extent:

I appreciate the feedback, E, and please don't feel bad that you
followed poor advice. We've all done that from time to time, of
course, and may do so again
In fact, I got fooled by Hulda Clark's presentations for awhile
before I figured out that much of it is kind of silly and
distracting, as well as a little disturbing. I gradually stopped
promoting her books after I found out that her basic zapper could
use a lot of improvement and that most of her claims, warnings and
recommendations just didn't stand up to rational scrutiny or
practice. After that, her plagiarisms also started bothering me
but, really, plagiarism is a pretty serious matter.
I only mentioned this because it's a specific example of how I got
scammed in the past. I want you to see, too, that the reason we're
doing our best, here, to exercise intellectual honesty and integrity
is so that our readers can have confidence in our presentations and
recommendations. Don't you hate it when you feel compelled to sort
through someone's horse$#!+ to get to their usable offerings? It
took me a couple of years to go through that process in re: Hulda
Clark's work, for instance.
