I have written and deleted several posts to you Smitty. This thread "restimulates" me.
"What have you done."
What are you, the "Product Officer"?
If you think something needs to be done, get it done.
I don't consider it any of your business what I do, and making public what people are doing serves no one but OSA.
Smitty is a person who lost a friend to Scientology in the seventies, and who joined this board because he wanted to assist me in thinking of ways to get Scientology abolished and help Scientologists in general. This is his frame of reference, and he is coming from a good place in this post.
People are expending a lot of energy on this board engaging in counterproductive activities which actually serve OSA in our OPINION- such as adopting the image of anonymous and interfering in Scientology activities. There are many other ways of moving the cause forward. That is what Smitty is attempting to explore on this thread. He did in fact do what he said he did, which is what he believes will succeed if good numbers of people also do it. But there are other ways of moving forward. Just because he doesn't agree with one, doesn't mean he is against the others.
Having these opinions does not make us OSA, any more than NOT having them makes YOU OSA- nevertheless, if I wanted to, I could build a great case that anonymous works for OSA and that people who follow them are getting sucked into a trap. I could use this as an ad hom to discredit the movement, but I don't. I express my differing opinion while respecting that you and others don't agree.
Our common ground is that nobody differs on the opinion that Scientology must be stopped, but there is a lot of infighting and namecalling on this board because people disagree how best to do that.
In the above post, you attempt to discredit Smitty by implying that he is a Scientologist or somehow serving Scientology. Well, he is neither, but maybe it is convenient for you to suggest these things.
Perhaps the discomfort you feel is because you are going down a path Smitty and I feel is counterproductive and you don't have a good argument against our position. I would feel uncomfortable if I were defending a stance that was illogical.
Instead of ad homming Smitty, why don't you address the issues we bring point by point?
Or perhaps throw in some of the good ideas you had about what to do and discuss some of the things you have done or want to do.
That is what this thread was started for, as far as I can tell.
