You continue to post dribble to Tad. Tad ignores you. Google "unhealthy obsession".

You're the one coming across as a deluded crackpot on this thread.

Smurf, I wish you would consider not discouraging good posters from posting.

First off, Don Carlo is far from a deluded crackpot, with an unhealthy obsession. He tends to focus on a topic, and thoroughly researches it, which has been quite valuable in many cases. For instance, I often refer to his research on the Hubbard Family tree.

Second off, we're not here to psychoanalyze each other.

Niether it is your role as a mod to police people's opinions as you have a tendency to do. I'm entitled to mine, Don has his, and you have yours.

Au contraire, you can have any opinion you want. As long as it is friendly etc as descibed in the board guidlines. Calling a very dilligent and gentlemanly poster a deluded crackpot skates on the edge, and maybe even over the edge.

That's a load of bullshit, but not surprising coming from you, as this is not the first time that you've tried to police comments that you, personally, take exception, too.

My comments of Don had zero to do with what you call "very dilligent and gentlemanly" discourse. It was his targeting one individual & his family. I don't demonize individual Scientologists nor do I stalk them. I know Tad Reeves, personally, and irrespective of his current involvement in Scientology, does not deserve some of the accusations that have been made towards him or his integrity via what you refer to as "diligent and gentlemanly" discourse. I stand by what I said.

Anyone that uses an Internet board to stalk another indiividual is a deluded crackpot.

Take a seat over here.

From your friendly admin:
viewtopic.php?p=339428#p339428
Just listen: As this is not a board set up to point out who is stupid, ignorant, evil, mentally impaired or OSA, it is off topic here. The agenda here is to be friendly and give support!

this is not the first time that you've tried to police comments...
Say what ever you want to say...nicely. It can be done. Don Carlo does it all the time.

Search his posts for some really excellent, in depth research about Hubbard, the corporate structure, the Freewinds, and now about barley formula.

If someone wants to start a thread about how to treat Sea Org, that would be and appropriate and interesting topic.

Like Marty's blog, where comments only get posted if it stroke's Marty's ego, OCMB has become your personal fiefdom. This has noting to do with the admin's rules. I won't opine according to the whims of you or anyone else. You want to ban me for it, because I don't meet your standards of what defines "playing nice", go right ahead. OSA will thank for you it.

This has nothing to do with Don Carlo's postings of the cult, in general. They have been excellent & well-researched. It's about calling out specific Scientologists on OCMB and constantly demonizing them.

I learned the danger & consequences of expressing "approved" opinions when I was in Scientology. I'm not going back there.

Thank you for the offer but no thanks, it's not my cup of tea.
