Fool on the Hill
Well, I was a silent lurker back in the old ARS days and I've seen you "spout all this $cilon-drivel", which secured you a warm cozy place in my killfile pretty soon. But from other people quoting you, I could later see that you had something interesting to say sometimes, and you had an interesting style. So I let you out of your cage and read your posts occasionally.
Just let me say that it was/is interesting to watch your "evolution" over the years.
Hi, Mr. Nobody,
Yes, being in CofS as I was at the time, my point of view was definitely one of the Scn'ist true believer. And what better place to discuss Scn than an ng called alt.religion.scientology? I've never liked fora to be solely populated by those with one opinion on a given issue. That's why, after I went Free Zone (back when I was into that) I tended to avoid FZ lists. No point/counterpoint. So I think it's healthy for ngs and mbs to have a mix of views and, as I said, had I not wandered in to a.r.s. and said the things I said, I'd not have learned about what was really going on and subsequently left the cult and started protesting.
I'm glad you sent me the Pepsi and potato chips and dip when I was in the killfile , though it was nice to get out occasionally and stretch my legs.
The main thing about me an' ars back in 1998 to 2000- (although, of course, I posted a few years after that and occasionally pop in even nowadays) was that I just really enjoyed talking to the people there. There were so many awesome smart wonderful people to talk to. What a relief to find out that the cult was lying about their alleged SPness.
