I convinced my neighbor to watch 'Going Clear' and showed in the facts about the "church" he was attending. He has stopped going to the LA Org. He gave me all his Scilon-related crap including the most recent issue of 'Freedom Magazine'..

One is also on staff at UCLA. The paid scumbags are:

Great find!! A Couple of the links didn't work but the one that stood out was Jennifer Lankheim (Editor) what the actual fuck does her header pic resemble? A toilet pissing on art?

Trashy!!!!!


HATE and ART just don't juxtapose...unless of course you're a hater of creativity and the art of life itself. That bitch makes me all twitchy.

Hmm I was able to open each of the links. I scrolled through the lives of strangers. I felt so unfulfilled and drained of anything resembling a purposeful life.

I almost contemplated finding the cord to my Tee Vee and re soldering the wires together.

Someone please help!!!

I can open them all. Weird.

Different countries perhaps? I'm posting from the UK. We had a similar problem recently when Maria posted some links to essays she'd written.

Personally I'm not overly bothered about reading them, so I don't want anyone to feel they have to make a big effort to sort this out on my account, but other Brits here may have the same problem.

I've been looking at the Alexa statistics for freedommag.org - they are worth a look.

The first thing that occurred to me is that Scientologists are being sent there to counteract the bad publicity. In the last 3 months they have improved 727,437 positions in global rank to current #132,035.

Over 85% of the audience is in the US.

Thanks, Smurf.

Assuming that you're right and these are indeed the writers for Freedumb magazine, it seems that:

1. None of these folks is a Scientologist.

2. They're all long-time professional journalists.

3. Based on their FB posts, they seem typical of journalists in that they're cynical, sarcastic, etc.

4. It's a really, really tough era for journalists -- otherwise, what self-respecting journalist would write for Freedumb?

5. Given how over the top and awful the writing in Freedumb magazine is, these guys seem to have found a way to amuse themselves and fuck over Scientology while forced to make a living this way: They're consciously making fun of Scientology and treating these Freedumb writing assignments like the writers at The Onion and The New Yorker's Andy Borowitz do.

6. I say, leave 'em to it. They're doing a damned good job!

The first thing that occurred to me is that Scientologists are being sent there to counteract the bad publicity. In the last 3 months they have improved 727,437 positions in global rank to current #132,035.

I see four factors here that together make up that numbers: 1) bought clicks, 2) clicks from Scientologists who are sent to these "theta messages", 3) clicks from random people who already suspect that this is thrash/propaganda but who want to check it all out before or after watching "Going Clear" or the SNL spoof (basically trying to decide whether it's a sick cult, or a very sick cult), 4) clicks from critics who check out that stuff on a regular basis.
I suppose the third and fourth factors are the most important.
One thing is certain, critics also read and watch Co$', er, "products"... for strictly journalistic purposes :melodramatic: ... or for the lulz... :cake: Random people who enter these search also might go to their sites to check them out, even when already knowing or suspecting it's from the organizatrion itself and at least unreliable - or complete shit.
Since there are so few Scientologists I especially assume that the majority of the hits on their Youtube videos come from strangers / random people / critics (referring to the official accounts, where they actually might send Scientologists), even if they buy clicks...
That they buy clicks would be nothing new, but a certain increase of hits for Co$ stuff before/after "Going Clear", Tony's book, the "Saturday Night Life" spoof, etc, does make sense. People want to check out stupid harassment videos or over-the-top success stories or DM speeches or ridiculous flyers to see the sick cult in action, as there is truth in these materials as well, just not the way Co$ intended it to be. It's historic materials. :nazi: :grouch: :coolwink: :biggrin: For somebody who has had no personal contacts with Co$ and tries to figure out what this all is about, the nasty shit from the cult, along with snippets from the crazier "lectures" of Hubbard, makes it real, just like reading/watching exes telling about the abuses. :bow:

Are there foreign language versions of FreedomMag under different domain names? Alexa is only showing US and Canadian visitor counts. If so there would probably be a bunch more hired writers or translators for those.

It must be your computer. I can access every link. I've had several friends try & they all worked for them, too. :)

All the links worked from my computer but only a couple links didn't work on my phone. Maybe it's a browser glitch thing.
