I am sorry to offend, but some of you posters are real yanks when it comes to Scientology.
Yeah, we all should be moar leik AGP.
Wake up you fucktards, it's not about the individual, it's about the fight itself.
It's obvious that some of you will never get it because your ego dictates your actions
As a modest person with no huge ego, what did you contribute to the fight against Scientology?
You'll never know because he doesn't scream about it and he wouldn't be so crass as to give some random person a list.
He's just one of the awesome pack in Australia, each doing their own part, working around their real life, to actually get things done.... unless you missed the shitstorm from down under over the last couple of years (and especially this week). It actually goes way back with media contacts before there was a large dedicated team of exes and activists. If that isn't a good enough example to lead by then I don't know what is. The cricital messageboards are replete with examples of people who just get on and do stuff, but you often don't find out about it until its done, and you don't find many people taking sole responsibility for it.
So, I'd say, enough of this "what have you done for me lately" counter-call-out bullshit please and, considering the bedlam going on outside this board in the world of scientology which is reported on almost daily, I'd suggest some might want to work with others on a meaningful project and perhaps do a little less pointless pontificating and navel gazing on OCMB as "career critics". You are of course free to do whatever you like within the bounds of the OCMB FAQ and within the spirit that admin intended for this board.
You know, I'm not a fan of call-out threads with people's names as the subject but when you persistently put yourself up for criticism, by way of your own actions, often speaking of yourself in the third person, then you shouldn't get too butthurt just for getting that criticism (although, if possible, I do think it is best kept to the actual thread topics on the issues in question though). If it goes beyond that then report it to your wonderful global mods.
So, at the end of the day, all you can hope to do is encourage them when they do something good and advise/criticise them when you think their actions are harmful and hope that works.
The Marty Rathbun saga is another example. Although he doesn't post here, merely mentioning is his name is guaranteed controversy in the extremes but, because you can't force him to think or behave in a certain way, the same level headedness applies. i.e. call out or even ridicule specific dubious actions, but encourage the positive actions, although understandably, those who actually have/had a dog in the race might have more to say.
