Only (half) joking.
My political efforts and opinions were enough to get me forced off the 
WTA list.
I also plan to precis that rather cutting article that compared 
Transhumanism to the Gnostic tradition.
I note that when that one did the rounds on the list it was most 
unpopular, but I still think it holds more than a grain of truth.
Anyway, I'll recommend the Extropy Inst as the preferred org if any 
reader is keen on lending a hand. Maybe ExI will become a branch of the 
OTO :-)
