Here's the link to her former blog. Wendy “Byrd” Ehlmann
A Byrd's Eye View [www.fraughtwithperil.com
This actually proves that SGI does "approve" of the main blogs about SGI, even the ones where they post a disclaimers saying they don't approve of it.
Why? Because SGI-USA monitors SGI members blogs, and if they don't approve of the blog, they do what they did to Byrd, they move to KICK THEM OUT of SGI, ban them from meetings, to try and block the blog.
So these other blogs/websites promoting SGI by SGI members, are approved of by SGI, as if they were not, the person would not be an SGI member!
But looking at how it unfolded with Byrd and SGI, this woman's division leader from SGI, the one who came down on Byrd, shows that the SGI higher-ups took notice of the blog, and wanted it to come down.
The way to do that, is to try and strip the blogger of their SGI friends by group SHUNNING, to use that as leverage. They didn't want to kick her out right away, as then the blog could get worsefor SGI.
Instead, they use the SOCIAL PRESSURE from the SGI social networks to close the blog down. They would know an SGI person enjoys group meetings, so they tell them if the blog stays up, they are banned from group meetings. GROUP SHUNNING.
Its also quite threatening that SGI-USA would tell Byrd they want a man to come and visit her in person in her apartment. That is an attempt at intimidation.
Someone in SGI-USA must have taken note of Byrd, and ordered the SGI locals to get her blog shut-down, and they moved against her.
Those vile comments from SGI, literally sound like crude SGI propaganda copied from the methods used in Japan on superstitious people. SGI does use the word "cobwebs" in other material.
It would be very useful to find out the SGI-USA person who actually posted that, or where it was posted. Some cross-referencing can turn up information very rapidly.
Below is a comment from a neighbor of Byrd whgo lived in the same building Co-Op, who says very nice things about Byrd. [www.fraughtwithperil.com
There are very decent comments from people on the blog.
