Going Clear being blocked in N Ireland

stubborn rebel sheep!
Anyway,

when documentaries are censored and blocked by big corporate entities, people know there is something ''hot'' and can either watch it on on international TV channels or find it on internet.

The more they fight to block it, the more public are curious :confused2:

I would love to see the cult sue for libel and have to prove that...bring it on.

Word!!
:happydance:

Can you imagine how many witnesses the Defense would have volunteering/clamoring to testify!? They'd have to set up a vetting process just to filter out the juiciest stuff, and still have witnesses overflowing the lounges (and probably lined up around the block). If the HBO were smart, they'd make the trial into another Special Documentary and stretch it out as long as they could...no, actually, with all the witnesses they could get, that would run longer than OJ's trial. But the Co$ would drop the case long before then anyway, in the face of all the embarrassing testimony for the Defense.

If COB ever got angry enough to be stupid enough to bring a libel case against HBO, and if the trial took place anywhere near WDC, I'll volunteer to help buy and deliver coffee and sandwiches to witnesses waiting to testify for the defense. I think it would be a great chance for a months-long block party for all ESMB-ers outside the courthouse.

Yeah, DM, BRING IT ON!!! :punch:

It's called the Streisand Effect: "the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet".

The original design of the Internet was to have something that could keep communications flowing even if chunks of the system were destroyed in nuclear war. It routes around damage.

In modern usage, the Internet culture treats attempted censorship as "damage", and routes around it.

In January 2008, The Church of Scientology's unsuccessful attempts to get Internet websites to delete a video of Tom Cruise speaking about Scientology resulted in the creation of Project Chanology - Wikipedia.

More (on the Streisand effect).

(This Scientology counter propaganda video may not be around very long).

We are proudly shown images of, Gold, their "Vatican", their pride and glory, the seat of power - yet there isn't a living creature around, not even a guard dog! What happened to all the people? Is this a Multiple Listing video for a bankrupt country club? Was there a quarantine due to a brain eating amoeba outbreak in the hot tub? A neutron bomb vaporized all the people and just left the buildings standing? We are reminded of all those new Chinese cities built for no one - a modern day Bodie only without the tourists. Even the desperate 1988 period political ad voice-over person is missing. This IS a state of the art recording studio isn't it? Seriously, did you actually just flash a picture of the rats from the movie the "Eternal Jew" prefaced with word clearing for "prop•a•gan•da (prŏpˌə-gănˈdə) in an attempt to dead-agent B-rated ants?

Show us the fence! Show us the fence!
