I'll agree it has been going on for a long time. This isn't Alanzo's first trip to the rodeo. No, you're right, he can't do it all by himself, so he is getting assistance, like having free run to say whatever insulting thing he wants without consequence.Sorry, it's been a long day and I'm tired. I'll give you my serious answer too.
In a sense and to different degrees of insanity, we are all broken toys of L Ron Miscabbage.
Looks to me that the relationships frayed were already so before Alanzo hit us up with his current crusade. Looks to me shits been stirring in the pot since 2010ish.
Looks to me that an uneasy "truce" has been in effect to allow everyone to be heard on the board, which has taken the moderates out of the game. The throne was held by Emma, but she didn't take the board the path she wanted to.
Looks to me that thrust was never there to start with.
A forum doesn't stop just because one dude with a big snooker and uncomfortable opinions start flinging his blade around.
Looks to me that the board was set in motion long before I came back.
The more I find out, the more curious I become.
The more answers I get, it adds to my concerns that once this board closes down, the only function I really care for, risk being completely gone from the internet:
A board where freshly outs can land for some time, anonymous, to get their bearings straight so they can start eke out a life free from Scientology. Free from stalking predators. It looks to me though as if that might have already disappeared some time ago, not sure why.
Apparently the Aftermath Foundation is a place where one can get help, I see the Headleys are board members which is great. The others I have no news about so I'm not sure where they stand in all this predatory BS. Anyways, YMMV and all that Jazz.
