Yes. Not exactly taking the high road, Zinji.

Do you think Emma will like it on her board?

Paul

Dunno, but, I suppose the best answer is that it's not on her board; just a link. I don't expect it to be around long anyway. Apparently Davey doesn't like it.

Is that because her hosting company is going to complain to her? Or because you are going to take it off first? :)

Paul

No, neither, but, it's not hosted here, so, I don't expect the hosting company to complain. However, the 'Church' goes after the free services that have it, and, understandably, they usually cave. However, it's survived 2 *real* DMCA takedown attacks so far since '98, even at Earthlink :)

I would suggest (and have) that Anonymous concentrate on exposing CofS abuses against individuals.

Yeah, me too, Paul...and they are! I had a 4 way call the other night,
going over just that with Anonymous. One of them called me today, to tell me she was
on K-Rock today (huge audience, too!) and telling them just that.
They want to get onto legal issues that expose Scientology's abuses.

Rock on, Anonymous! They're listening and growing in a few short days.
Scientology hasn't been able to listen to ANY Of us in 50-60 YEARS.

Go figure! :confused2: :duh:

My best to all :)

Wacky religious dogma are not unique to Scientology. The Xenu story has been mainstream for 20 years or more. Laughing at strange religious beliefs does not have a strong moral foundation.

Exposing things like disconnection, with specific examples, does.

Paul! Long time no see... er... hear... :)

I think you misunderstood the post I made. I'm not for making fun although I have somewhat in the past. What I meant was keeping the tech free of charge and of secrecy. If I've learned anything this past year, it's that secrecy spawns corruption. That's one of the reasons why DM has gotten away with so many unauthorized changes in the tech.

Hope that helps you to understand my perspective.

Hey Steve,

Yeah, it did seem you were concentrating on the wacky stuff. :)

Scientologists Bring in Fed Big Boys to Squash Internet Attacks

Are elders at the notoriously litigious Church of Scientology reaching out to the federal governmental for protection against a recent spate of Internet attacks? A source tells Radar that Church leaders have been so flustered by "Anonymous"— the online collective disrupting the Church's day-to-day operations after it attempted to prevent the dissemination of the now-infamous Tom Cruise video—that they've asked the U.S. Attorney General's office in Los Angeles, the FBI, as well as the LAPD to launch a criminal investigation into possible criminal activity by any hackers.

Disparate individuals working under the banner of "Anonymous" initially congregated on the online collaborative community 4chan (a description of the group, its motives, and its goals can now be found here). Their efforts to draw attention to the Church's "campaigns of misinformation" and tendency to suppress dissent have generally been successful: The first coordinated raid against the COS, a denial of service attack, crashed the Church's website. Anonymous members subsequently bombarded the Church with calls in order to tie up phone lines, sent "black faxes" to waste ink, and also "Google bombed" the Church by tying the word "Scientology" to such nefarious terms as "dangerous" and "cult" in order to skewer search results. A complete rundown of the attack, dubbed "Project Chanology," can be found here. On the site, February 10 is cited as the day of reckoning for Scientologists.

According to our source, the Church is arguing that such attacks on their physical plant and website constitute "illegal interference with business." The CoS is also said to be playing up its nominal role as a religious organization in order to claim that efforts to disrupt its operations are a violation of the Church's First Amendment rights, and thus technically constitute hate crimes.

Initial attempts by authorities in Los Angeles to track the IP addresses used by some of the pranksters have allegedly been successful. Calls to the U.S. Attorney General's office in L.A., the LAPD, and the FBI, however, have not yet been returned.
