Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- From news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!news.dgsys.com!DGS.dgsys.com!alerma Mon Jul 10 17:02:27 1995 Path: news.interserv.net!news.sprintlink.net!news.dgsys.com!DGS.dgsys.com!alerma From: alerma@dgsys.com (alerma) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: Elaine Seigal Letter (best of ARS) Date: 8 Jul 1995 05:43:45 GMT Organization: Digital Gateway Systems Lines: 194 Distribution: world Message-ID: <3tl5uh$e77@news.dgsys.com> NNTP-Posting-Host: dgs.dgsys.com X-Newsreader: TIN [version 1.2 PL2] < Comments by Arnaldo Lerma in <> > BRIEFING TO ALL SCIENTOLOGISTS ON THE INTERNET FROM THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY INTERNATIONAL (NOTE: If you know any other Scientologists on Internet or America Online, please e-mail this briefing to them). Dear Scientologist, As you know, there has been quite a bit of false and derogatory information going out over the Internet by a few detractors, squirrels etc. <'false and derogatory' above is referring to SWORN affidavits, PERSONAL first hand testimonies, and SUPPORTED by the US SUPREME COURT judgements - these are what Cof$ considers 'false and derogatory information - George Orweil is smiling in his grave > The Church fired a project to collect up all this information, and we have been in comm with some of you already. We have obtained legal input on some of the messages that individuals have posted that could be libelous or in violation of copyright laws. < Here is where Erlich is lined up in sights of the Ho'of Babble's barotry gun > We have a plan of action that we are taking, to simply outcreate the entheta on these newsgroups (alt.religion.scientology and alt.clearing.technology), and get positive information to the general public on what Scientology is, our activities around the world, successes stories and LRH writings. There will also be some legal actions, which you will be further briefed on. Basically, as a group we will NO longer put up with our religion being criticized, harrassed and denigrated on the Internet. As a first step, I want to thank those who have posted positive material and handled some of the entheta that has been posted. This is very much appreciated! Secondly, I would like to ask your assistance in getting each one of you to post positive messages on the Internet (at least once a week, more if you like), about Scientology. < Ahh the Cof$ becomes the Church of Spamatoligy> We want to make these messages "high ground". In other words, don't get tempted into a two way comm with some 1.1 jerk on the Internet. Ack him and continue to post POSITIVE and HIGH TONED messages that really explain what Scientology IS doing, how it helped you or a friend, community activities of the Church, Church expansion. It is easy to get into an opp term situation with the detractors over this system, but this doesn't necessarily communicate very well to the broad public who may read this. < High Toned ? Woody, Noodle, Jet (joke), clueless Ronartist?, Vile Vera? > There is an excellent issue by LRH which is PR Series 27, THE ENEMY LINE. In here, LRH says that you never forward UP WITH A BETTER CAMPAIGN OF YOUR OWN. This should be applied whenever you post a message on Scientology, as we want to keep this on a theta, dissemination comm line to the broad public. < OK, I got this right, Vera=Woody=Ronartist=Jet=theta > The Church of Scientology International is getting our own site onto Internet, and we'll also be posting messages regularly in there, so if you feel you are getting attacked by some detractor or jerk, let us know right away, and we can get you material to counter whatever is being said. If you imagine 40-50 Scientologists posting on the Internet every few days, we'll just run the SP's right off the system. It will be quite simple, actually. CSI will be e-mailing around various briefings and good news messages to individuals for posting also, so that you are getting new material to post. If you need material or want to get your material cross-checked with us for content, e-mail it (to this address for now, until CSI gets our own), and we'll get you the material you need. The two newsgroups on the Internet are "alt.religion.scientology", and also "alt.clearing.technology" (which was set up by Homer Smith, a squirrel and declared SP). We need to fill up both of these newsgroups with positive information on the Church. < I know Homer, I like Homer, he's quite an extraordinary human being, 'squirrel' is a derogatory term used by Cof$ to describe anyone who is capable of exposure to the sacred scriptures of L Ron Hubbard and can still maintain the ability to think for himself, and has not confused the power of 'SOURCE' (as the culties describe it) with the power of 'TRUTH', which the rest of us call it. > For those of you with access to America Online, you know there is a similar situation with Scientology being attacked on that system. So this would apply to this newsgroup as well (posting positive messages on Scientology). The Planetary Dissemination Org (PDO) will be getting their own site onto Internet, which will be for the dissemination of LRH's works, WIS book, and other materials and campaigns. We intend to put these works onto laser discs, and utilize all the tools of the Internet to disseminate Scientology internationally. < Add this to the list of "what your "donations" buy" professionally orchestrated mindless spammings, rmgroup messages, raids on a simple truthseeker, harrassment of elderly mothers in hopes of intimidating silence, anonymous cancellations of posts by Cof$, and a litany of lies by brainwashed dunces> This is very exciting, and will be a new era for computer users as regards the subject of Scientology. < Yes, it is very exciting, the morons dont seem to have done anything right, - in fact, the actions of the Cof$ on the net have been, in fact, the MOST SELF-DESTRUCTIVE actions, I can only, grasp, at straws trying to make their actions make sense, they have CAUSED more damage, and propagation, and by thier actions motivated more otherwise disinterested people to spread the TRUTH of the Cof$ - I am dumbfounded..If I were an asthmatic dwarf, running the Cof$, I'd throw them all overboard...> Look for CSI's first posting very shortly. We WILL outcreate anything that is on there. < well, when is this show gonna start? or are these self destructive actions you have already engaged in, it? > I would like to hear from you on your ideas to make the Internet a safe space for Scientology to expand into. < well here's my 2cents worth , get honest, come clean, follow the instructions of the United States Supreme Court and pay Wollershiem the 4.7 million dollars his current judgement is worth , but then, by examinations of your scriptures, and validation by your actions, you feel you are above the law... But you are not above the Liberty Tree that is the Internet> Thanks. ML, Elaine Siegel Office of Special Affairs International
