The "terms and conditions" being that, like untouchables, they are limited to their own sub-forum which is not seen by the general public unless they make an account. See the discussion, here: "Is it OK for PBKs to promote themselves in this Forum?". Just like the old fashioned caste system really ... however, it is a start.
It seems the BKs need some education. They appear to believe the PBKs are a separate philosophy.

Subforum has been created with those implemented - breakaway-groups forum; ex-BK, gbk, PBKs forum
Since the development of 'Brahma Kumaris Info' and this forum, and the BKs failure to suppress or destroy them, the BKs have been working in a different way to suppress alternative views within the BK movement firstly by aping almost identically Brahma Kumaris Info and now targeting the same membership as this forum. In the beginning, they used an almost identical set up and wording. Their forum is now linked to from the BKWSU main site. In essence, where they Could not stamp down and suppress, they are now looking to flood the internet or bury other voices.
They claim themselves to be "Open" to all ... but they are already getting into banning certain individuals, and now segregation, so we will see where it all goes in the long term.
In the meanwhile, I'd like to encourage any PBKs who are interested to engage them in discussion and inform them correctly about who and what the PBKs are. Perhaps there is a possibility of positive influences?
Of course, it amuses me that once again the motivation from the BKWSU to have to do something is coming from outside their religion and certainly not their god.
I noted in another post that one of their site admins, who was involved in the legal action against 'Brahma Kumaris Info' is now married with notifications on his Facebook page and congratulations from high ranking BK such as Karuna Shetty. It seems that more and more BKs in the West are shacking up together but still remaining "serviceable" to the religion ... whatever does that mean for the vibrations?
