    Then people continue to enrol for courses, but they don't learn anything because all the useful bits have been taken out. Eventually even the most die-hard Ronbots decide there's nothing worthwhile there, and even the Sea Org Orgs empty out. Then Flag closes and becomes a dry cleaners.

    I have often wondered if the tech they copied to gold, glass, ceramic and titanium dics is the unaltered pure form meaning Dave didin't fuck with it.

    ************************************************** ***********************************

    Per the Comal County website above, Defendant Ed BRYAN is now represented by Jonathan H. HULL.
    Mr. Hull, who now represents two Defendants (Bryan & Sloat) filed an Answer on 10-28-2013 with the Court.
    The website doesn't say on whose behalf the Answer was filed - Bryan or Sloat? Both, perhaps?

    Defendant David Lubow, per the website, is still not represented by counsel.

    FWIW, this sounds like simple click-tracking on the URL you clicked on.

    Ever notice that sometimes a really long URL has what seems like a bunch of extra parameters at the end of it, and a shorter version without some of that mess still works even though it is shorter? Books on Amazon are a good example of this.

    When that happens, one of those nonsensical looking parameters has an id value in it that identifies where the person came from. This is normally used for tracking clicks on marketing campaigns or specific ads, to see which ones work the best. And it sounds like the cult is using it more aggressively than most to track individual people clicks. So say for example, you would have come across the same web page link you clicked on in that email from google or elsewhere, where the URL was shorter, they would NOT have known it was you specifically (or rather your email address) that visited the page.

    Re: Cult drops bombshell in Monique Rathbun case: Oct 18, 2013 ---- March 13, 2014

    If you've read this entire thread, you'd probably like to know that Judge Dib Waldrip DENIED the Anti-SLAPP Motions to Dismiss filed back on October 18, 2013.

    Here's a link to the ESMB thread with the current, specific information/details/commentary:

    TeamCSI has 20 days* to file a Notice with the Trial Court if they plan to appeal Judge Waldrip's ruling.
    (*Until approximately April 4, 2014 or so.)

    They're playing Keep The Dwarf Off The Record. They won the last few months, but it cost lots of dosh, they had to wear that they are a business, and they had to put food on Ray Jeffrey's table.

    This has gotta be the best game in town.
