This is gonna be a little off topic.........
Not that I ~ever~ do that! But it'll get back to it... sorta...
I'm bad about not noticing when a topic is necro'd, brought back from a couple years of obscurity. So I started reading from the beginning as if it's new.
Lalala, nice to see StevenSlaughter posting again; bit of "yuck, Will Smith, what are you doing!?"
Then I saw a post from NattyP.
I loved NattyP's posts so much; she really cut through and called out stuff like it is. Amazing wit and always had me laughing!
For those who don't remember, Prometheus came on here some time ago and said NattyP was his wife, who unfortunately passed away due to breast cancer, I believe.
Seeing and reading the post really put a tear or ten into my eye. But at the same time, I'm smiling and imagining NattyP in the afterlife someplace; if Karma has anything to do with it, Natty's probably pulling some kind of 3 Stooges moves on L Ron right now! Embarrassing him, poking him in the eye, you name it!
Prometheus, if you're still reading here, hope you're doing well. Hope life has been good to you and there's a whole group of people wishing good things your way. You're a good man.
You know..... it's pretty messed up that I, an "eevil SP critic" care more about people that I've never seen and never met; yet David Miscavige is around people all day and doesn't give one shit whether they live or die.
And for all the work we do, reasonably smart, extremely successful people like Will Smith come along and dive right in to the steaming, warm, pile of bullshit. It may be cold outside, Willy Will, but that's not the right place to warm your body. Besides, it's Summer! Get out of the dungheap, and stop committing your money to sending others* there!
* Will's money goes into the pile which keeps places like Int base afloat. At Int Base, there have been eyewitness accounts of people being forced to clean out human waste-filled areas, and given little or no protection or even proper tools. It's part of the RPF, a punishment, forced labour camp, where you get sent if Miscavige decides it. Another popular thing is throwing people into a disgusting pond full of all manner of filth.
