Would you please be more specific ?
What do you mean by "attacks", precisely?
DMCA takedown notices for C of $ copyrighted material ?
Apparent Denial Of Service attacks against his hosting server that were not traceable to temporary network outages?
Hackers breaking into forum software?
"Attacks" is a very very broad word and only a very few sort sorts of "Attack" necessarily have C of $ involved.
I was at St.Hill from august to november in 1980. I did the rest of Student hat, some staff status and the PR course. The GO was expanding in Europe. Students from EU national GO's filled the big tent to the south of where the 'castle' was being built. Around 200 students I would estimate. I remember sunny weather, despite the time of year... Hmm.. Maybe I just remember the good days.
We must have then! When I collected my, was it 23 pounds? - at thurs- or fridays. - Your old avatar did look familiar too!
Hmm.. Can't say I remember how I got pay.. I seem to recall there was nothing for me the first week... Also 23 pounds would be a lot, wouldn't it? - So I suspect that was probably not the weekly figure.
At the risk of sounding crude, Patty said up front her job sometimes was to dig up dirt on people and go through their garbage even. Same shit happened back on her.
There she is up on religious freedom aka fuck our imagined enemies web site.
Sounds like the people from OSA came in and bypassed Emma's waste dump imposed on her by a local Org and cleaned up all the crap. They overode all of the bullshit, came to the rescue and even discounted all the bullshit with the injustice and recruited her as teammate. It didn't change anything.
The Church is no protective armour.
You cannot abuse people and think it is alright for a "higher cause" or because someone told you it was the right thing to do.
You cannot abuse someone for years and think it is alright because one day you say, "Let's put it behind us".
You cannot commit crimes against your neighbors and fellow man and expect evolution within yourself or your group.
Buddhism has been around forever and is continually growing.
People still have their own drama and karma to work out.
They are here to say the karma is all fucked or the karma is all good.
I have an identity here and others to others flows is part of my inheritance.
But I came to final closure talking it out here, realizing the basic was magic.
This is not the end.
It's the beginning.
Thank you all for letting me be here with a kindness I know is the glue that holds us all together.
Reasons NOT to care about the person in front of us is the blackest magic of all.
And it is not just within Scientology but manifests itself in many arenas.
But if you look at the Orgs and the scriptures you will find it in writing and policy, reasons not to care about the person in front of you, while saving the lives of every man woman and child on this planet....."
And you see the sadism that has come from that.
You can see for yourself the results.
OSA has receded into background, primarily because of the swiftness of open communication on Internet.
Boards like ESMB, OCMB, ARS, etc. are very dangerous to them.
They can be back if Internet gets strangled. They could be figuring out ways to do that, if they are intelligent at all.
Maybe its too late for that.
