<snipped for brevity>
The fact that Os/Smitty was able to rag on Anons for weeks and weeks on end, the consistent thread-jacking & nitpicking of SM, and the tame responses that are required here even in the face of really destructive behavior... it all combines to give me the impression that this board often degenerates, for lengthy periods, into a graveyard of ideas, a museum for gray-haired Sci critics, and a place that trolls play rather freely.
Your "impression" is so far beyond wrong, it isnt funny
It gets boring. OCMB is far, far more interesting since Anon came along, if only because what they do ends up posted here.
Oh, where does/did Little Bear Victor, blownforgood, Dr Shannon, Chuck Beatty et al post again?
OCMB, ESMB and ARS have always been the breaking grounds of new insider dirt on the cult.
Enturb has its place and purpose that is unparalleled, because it was spawned after the moralfag Anon's listened to Mark Bunker, and saw the ultimate win/victory (that would include many lulz) could be achieved by morphing the battle plans/tactics into a win-win situation.
There has always
been a problem with people wanting to change OCMB in some way shape or form.
What has unfolded has been nothing more than a battle of pride and ego on every side. It's not just a black or white issue
And lets face it, some people want to have people pick a side in this latest fraccas, that isnt really new to criticdom of scientology.
Is a new cabal being born?
This isnt ESMB or ARS or even Enturb, it is an entity that is as individual as ESMB, ARS or Enturb.
Why is it that people feel some need to almagamate the entirety of criticdom into a singular entity?
What really hurts the cult is, it cannot fight something that doesnt have a central base of point to attack.
Sure, the Nony's have done/achieved moar in the last 6 months, that has probably been achived in a decade, with the cult being absolutely flailed by media and leaks coming out. But just remember what awoken Anonymous initially, it was the moralfag OG (you guys deserve a fuckin medal for THAT)leaking the Cruise videos to Gawker and the WEB.
None of this/fight against the cult, is or ever was suppose to be about OG, moralfags, Anonymous etc etc etc, it was suppose to be about turning back the clock on hubbard's soulrape. During the 50's, 60's and 70's, that cult couldnt really catch a break, and history is repeating itself, but it's looking like it will change for the better in relation to the cult growing.
None of us have
to be friends. If all have the same objective, isnt that enough to move forward to victiory?
That doesnt mean it's okay to try have one entity swallow up another entity, bacause some people dont like the other entity due to headswelling of importance and relevence to the fight against the cult.
Look, whislt ever the is a decentralization of criticdom, the cult just cant get an attack position it needs to make ground on its enemies.
Problem NOW isIMHO, a small number are wanting to start to dictate everything from there own perspective of what to do and how to do it.
It's one thing to put forth an ideology for the masses to digest, and either consume and move on such food for thought or just spit out again, but it's an entirely different thing for a tiny number to start trying to rally support because their ego's are so inflated, they cannot see how dumb they look overall.
The petty jealousies obviously exist within factions of the Nony's, as well as criticdom, and that is human nature. But it isnt human nature to want to flail one group, just so as to gain control overall.
THAT IS SCIENNTOLOGY APPLIED!
Whilst ever the cult managed to hold an umbrella over its critics and enemies, it could always counter/defeat its opponents. Those days are now GONE. So why try bring back a central point of attack by some sort of amagalmation?
If it aint broken, dont try fix it.
I'm just tiring of hearing even others than Gumby saying, "Yes, TD must go." As if theirs were the determining voices.
That is Gumby's perspective, and he will be the first to say he speaks for himself
It's a blanket condemnation of something many OCMB members don't seem to even understand.
The very same thing can be said of those that are in TD and Enturb, trying to garner support from others, in the flailing of the entirety of Xenu.net and those they call "OG"
And yet they insist that the path must be cleared for them to come in and inspect their kingdom, and rout out anything which meets with their personal displeasure.
Again, the same applies here.
TD is NOT for the faint hearted and people post there at their own peril. If people didnt realize that
from day 1, then they should lurk moar.
