Devotee finds free speech unseemly

All glories to Srila Prabhupad, who is the saviour of the world
It sometimes disgusts me to see the kind of articles that are published in Chakra. It seems to me that your publication is everything other than an encouragment to anyone seeking the answers. So much bickering, slamming, rhetoric.
I am sure that this was not the mission of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Srila Prabhupad. It all comes from not paying attention to ourselves and finding faults in others -- i.e. lack of proper chanting. Srila Prabhupad once said that if someone has uttered the name of Krsna even once, he is a Vaisnava.
The point being why is all the nonsense being allowed in your publication.
Unless one learns to love Lord Krsna from any activity, it's nothing but prajalpa. If all the resources are being wasted on creating confusion in readers' minds then we are misusing Srila Prabhupad's resources.
How many times did Srila Prabhupad print articles in response to all the nonsense that was going on. OR any of our Acharyas for that matter. Lets' utilize this energy in the service of Krsna and not throwing mud on each other. Thanks.
