Yeah, I just saw Alanzo over on Marty's blog through a link posted here about redoing OT VIII. He doesn't get as much love over there as he did here. :no:

That little guy calling out for Allen is a "prairiedog". They are indigenous to the No. American Continent. I've had a love affair going on for them for years. They even meditate/pray spending about 30 minutes at sunrise and sunset facing the sun in meditation.

It has been estimated there were over a billion of these cuties here before the invasion from Europe began. I refuse to try and rundown the present estimates. Would probably tear me apart.

You know what's ironic? I was searching for something unrelated to Alanzo but this link came up at the top, showing " Thursday, January 25, 2001" date
http://alanzosblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/alanzos-apology-to-ex-scientology.html

Sounds like he's not interested in coming back .

Hey, it would be really cool if Al start throwing down some posts here again. But there appear to be "factors" barring that.

One thing I don't get however is how his Factors work.

"Factor 1: I won't ever have anyone tell me what I can write and what I can't write ever again."

If he posts on MartyBlog or other sites, don't they tell him what he can write, simply by moderating, censoring and blocking posts which are not consistent with their propaganda?

If he writes a movie script, doesn't the studio paying him dictate what he can write?

If he writes a novel, doesn't the publisher give him editing notes to adhere to?

If he writes anything, doesn't it get judged, praised or criticized by whomever reads it?

I don't think Al was censored on ESMB as much as he was simply tired of his audience.

Well, as a crafty writer, he seeks inspiration wherever he can find it.

But, the only person censoring him is himself.

I'd love to see him lift his self-imposed censorship and continue to share some of his facile ingeniousness at ESMB.

Al, your door is unlocked. Come on out and play.

Good riddance.

I went and read his "apology", and it is endless, "look at what horrible thing has been done to ME!" Wah-wah-wah. :hurt:

And, drama. Lots of contrived DRAMA there. You can scoop it up with a spoon - it's laid on so thick. :drama2:

His post is so horrendously self-absorbed, and betrays HIS strange view of things in relation to himself. Read this:

"Even though I do not think I was necessarily considered a poster who was rude and corruptive to the newbies, I was still targeted for handling by the core members of the ESMB Moral Majority for being impious, and that was quite an experience which I will not have repeated on me."

"Core members of the ESMB moral majority"? :confused2:

"Targeted for handling"? Geez, can we please STOP automatically equating PT situations with PAST negative experiences in the Church of Scientology? Believe me, I am pretty sure that nobody was trying to "handle him". Yet, he says that - he believes that?

What a very STRANGE way to view things. In true relativistic fashion, ala Albert Einstein, the OBSERVED is DEFINED by the state of the observer. What does such a comment say about the person saying it? Because, a great deal of the things that he says are NOT "the way things actually are out there in the real world". And yet, he SEES things in this way, in ways that do NOT correlate well to actual events and situations. That is just more of the common human tendency to "see what you wanna see".

For being "impious"? Again, what a strange way to frame and position it all.

And, all of this "it was so horrible, and I won't ever allow myself to experience THAT again". Hmmmp! Stomping down the foot HARD! I AM OFFENEDED!!!!!!! :yes:

Just too much exagerrated (staged) emotions, righteous-indignation and possibly someone who likes nothing better than finding a real good EXCUSE to RUN OFF AND AROUND IN A TIZZY (as often do people in the PR departments of the Churches of Scientology). Same 'ole same 'ole.

Endless "me-me-me":

I'm sick of being . . . .

I became a critic when . . .

I was not able to make informed decisions . . .

The goals I set up when I decided . . . .


Whatever. Yawn. :whatever:

I don't miss the endless posturing at all - just as I don't miss the same sort of thing with his "evil twin" Vin.

I suppose this may be unpopular to some, and spot-on to others. He wrote some great posts IN THE PAST. But, today, in PT, well, just read it yourself. The link is above.

Every person is on their own path and has their own lessons to learn. Some fear to be re-incarnated as a lowly toad with warts next lifetime and have to wait for a magical princess to randomly come along and kiss away their faults and problems. I think that might be why we tend to latch on to something that tells us the rules to follow to avoid that fate.

I could say a lot of things about religions and philosophys I see people embracing here. All the history known to man is at your fingertips on the Internet or the Library or your local college. There really are no secrets or "hidden data lines" if you just look.

I don't have any answers either, but sheesh, why not have a look at your choices before you choose one?

Gadfly,
:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Yours above is well and succinctly put. For those that missed it, Al's last barrage of posts here were abusive and laden with false accusations against Emma and demands of her he had no right to make. And when he failed in his assault, he was off in the huff of victimishness you note above.

It is a testament to Emma's good graces and great sense of humor that she opened this thread as she has :yes:
