I got chucked off his forum for disagreeing with their, as I saw it, rather odd moderation. Who knows?, he might be a terton. Good luck to him.
Wow, I just realized that it was this Ivo. We exchanged a number of emails for a time until nyingmaworld collapsed when Ivo and Yeshe Dorje had some problems with each other. He made a good impression on me at the time, seemed to be a very serious practitioner. He was rather hardcore, just like Yeshe Dorje. It wouldn't surprise if he reads this right now.
What a remarkable and strange journey he been doing these last years. The Ivo I used to know would never have accepted it, if I remember correctly he thought Aroter was rubbish. Well, well...
