Today is a good day.
I have located the Factnet.org forum in its entirety:
If you can't find it via the link, you need to start an account at archive.org. Type in the URL "factnet.org" there, and select a time before 2015. It takes a long time to load but it's there in all its glory-- including all the bickering and name-calling from current TLW members.
I also found a strange coincidence on archive.org when searching for "John Robert Stevens:"
The late, great gospel singer, Ethel Waters has an old vinyl uploaded. You can view it here: [archive.org
Two things jumped out at me. The description said that "Dr. John Robert Stevens" provided a message on the album cover. Also, look up at the top right. "The WORD Productions" It even has the same sword through a bible imprint that TLW borrowed. What a coincidence! The record company was also based in Waco, TX, I found that a little amusing.
I don't want to take away from your posts, Onion and Puddington. That's a really important topic, especially the part about 'the vault' likely being created to secure documents about the various trusts. According to my source, "It's been rumored that Gary and Rick cleared out the contents of those safes in the early 00's in the weeks after one particular summer camp. The 'vaults' were likely in what is now the finance department, as well as a few storage rooms near service tunnel in the basement. Much of that has been shredded. It's doubtful anything remains at Shiloh on the gold mine. Those rooms are dedicated to Shiloh U now."
I'm sure Shiloh U has plenty of paperwork worth securing and eventually shredding in the basement as well!
Well my coffee is finished, time to go fight the 405 commute.
