Let me set the record straight on a couple of points because I'm fed-up with the carping, sanctimonious bullshit and hypocrisy by a handful of carpers, sanctimonious bullshitters and hypocrites on ars.
Deana at best mis-remembered or at worst lied. She did ask me for work (I told her that I personally had nothing for her to do) but that FACTNet had a number of projects that needed volunteers. That was not good enough for Ms. Holmes -- she needed money. I told her FACTNet could not afford to pay people at that stage because of a lack of resources. She had the solution - - - --"Bob, why don't you fund a position for me at FACTNet"?
A few others on ars who are among my most virulent critics have also asked for outright handouts from me and I have declined. They have e-mailed me praising my efforts and sucking up big time. That is not why I do what I do vis-a-vis Co$. I declined to assist some of these people. They then went back door via Stacy to try and convince her that I should listen more carefully to the merits of their needs or case.
I cannot help everyone who needs help for God's sake. There are hypocrites at work here on ars and we all need to ask who they are really working for.
Need you think I am being alarmist, FACTNet, yes FACTNet, discovered an OSA operative who had been run in on Stacy back in May 1998 for the express purpose of gathering intelligence on my activities and Stacy's. OSA was successful. They had unfettered access to information about me and my whereabouts, Stacy's inner circle of friends, FACTNet records, Dan Leipold's office, Graham Berry's office and other juicy bits of info. Not only that, this plant had worked for the Cult Awareness Network for years and was an intimate friend of Cynthia Kisser, Craig Branch and a number of others active in the counter-cult movement.
Her name is Laura Terepin. She is a whore who works for the devil named Scientology. Jesse Prince will post details of how we came to discover her activities and her daily reports to OSA in LA when he leaves Wellspring in a couple of days.
Now I will point out the obvious: Nothing could make OSA happier than to watch the critics on a.r.s. trash FACTNet and the people who are trying to move FACTNet in the direction of helping former scientologists recover from their experience in the cult. Indeed, I have to wonder about the timing of this latest attack on FACTNet, coming as it does so soon after our announcement that our emphasis in 1999 will be on helping former scientologists recover.
This kind of attack is straight out of scientology's play book. Someone is deliberately instigating this attack on FACTNet, just as someone is deliberately trying to turn critic against critic on ars. Does anyone on ars doubt that scientology views the situation on the internet as a war? Does anyone doubt that scientology is prepared to do whatever it takes to destroy ars and its critics? Does anyone seriously doubt that scientology is behind the protracted spam attack on ars?
Think about it: who has the most to gain from creating a mob mentality that will cause the critics on ars to turn against critics and FACTNet, the only counter cult group willing to confront scientology?
I urge Deana, Anti-Cult and Martin Hunt to consider whose hands they are playing into by leading this assault against FACTNet. Scientologists are experts in the art of manipulation, and that is exactly what they are doing here. Imagine the glee David Miscavige will feel when he receives the compliance report to his order to turn ars against FACTNet. His operatives in OSA are doing an excellent job of wreaking havoc on this newsgroup. And the ars critics who are going along with this attack like puppets on a string are giving Miscavige and his OSA lieutenants a real chuckle lately. Don't you realize how contemptuous they are of you? Can't you see how you are being manipulated?
But I'm afraid OSA has whipped these people into such a frenzy of hatred at this point that there is not much chance my appeal to reason will be heard by them. My message is really to the rest of the people who are watching this lynching, undoubtedly horrified by it, and wondering what is going on. Have no doubt that you are seeing a classic black PR caper in action here. Their attempts to destroy me, Stacy, Jesse, Grady and Lawrence individually have failed miserably. Now they are trying a new tactic: Destroy FACTNet, thereby destroying the work all of us are trying to do to help scientologists.
None of us in FACTNet will let this happen. FACTNet will continue its work to help former scientologists, no matter what kinds of attacks scientology launches to stop us. This current strategy will not stop us any more than their earlier strategies have.
I urge all of you to join us in our work to defuse scientology's evil. I particularly urge Deana, Anti-Cult and Martin to recognize that FACTNet is not the enemy here. We should all be working together.
