NewportBarGuy: I think this was a popular term during turn-of-the-century Jolly England. Rogue groups of public school boys would roam the streets placing a hat on their object of derision. Thus the term "hatting" was coined.

It wasn't until decades later in Compton, CA that the term "drive-by hatting" came into use.


Hatting has a long history in the US, dating back to at least the 1800s. The most well-known example is the infamous "Kentucky Derby," an event so vile that the townspeople's horrified flight is celebrated in an annual horserace.

Guntram Shatterhand: Plus, despite my distaste for religion, Christianity's tenets (well, the ones that exist outside of people's heads) are freely available. If I want to read the Bible as it stands, I can get it for free online and in the real world. If I want to read criticism about the Bible and how each religion deals with it, you can take a trip to the local library and get it in some form or fashion. It's very easy to get the literature on most of the major religions along with criticism thereof. Scientology does not offer that, and the only reason a lot of this stuff is known is because a lot of people have leaked it.


The difference between a cult and a religion is that if you go up to a member of a cult and ask them what they believe they won't tell you unless your a member. With a religion if you do the same thing you'll never get them to shut up.

Subject: RE: Simple hatting on how to fight back on the internet
and Stand Up For Your Faux Religion

Dear Razz Line members,

I am not a big fan of media, but you may have glanced the news of
the split between TC and Holmes and all the speculations around.
While this is a personal matter, when people start to bring our
religion into the middle and a bunch of uninformed people start to
spread false datum (only one?), rumors and defame our religion it became a
matter that does affect my Dynamics (a disruption in the Force) and I believe that affects
yours as well (which is okay as long as it doesn't affect your ability to pay).
Well, I am not somebody that I am going to simply stand and watch a
bunch of uninformed people putting my faux religion under the carpet (better there than up on a pedestal so we can all look up its skirt to realize that, like TC's lover, it has a peener). So
here is a simple hatting on how you can causative fight back and at
the same time stand up and defend our faux religion on the internet
(or, as it's normally referred to as "to laxative poop on the internet") .

Microsoft or Google or any of these big online company require that
each person when create an account with them follow a Code of
Conduct when they are on the internet. If there are abuse of such
Code of Conduct, those website do actually invite you to report the
matter to the Moderator - in other word, write the matter to
Ethics.
WTF, English how does it work?

These This is where things can be turned around!

Here is a simple example on how to fight back abuse of the Code of
Conduct that is happening within the Microsoft (MSN) website:

1. One of the Code of Conduct that Microsoft impose is to not
"threatens, defames, degrades... an individual or group of
individuals for any reason; including on the basis of age, gender,
disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race, religion; or
incites or encourages anyone else to do so.."

So is if you go to MSN Now - What's Trending? you will see different
articles about TC and Holmes split. The articles then ask for
comment.... (Note: if the article does not show up anymore on the
first page, go to the search bar and type 'Tom Cruise Divorce'...
or a similar search. You want to go where the comment section is) (Double note -- thereby increasing the page hit count, ensuring that the original article is sure to show up on Google whenever Tom Cruise Divorce is googled).

On each comment if you place your mouse over it,it show up on the
bottom right a tag that say 'REPORT'. English, how does it work?

2. Click the "Report" Tag and a small window shows up. Click the tab
"Send Note to Moderator"

3. Once you do that a new window shows up and you can send a text of
100 characters. You can write something like 'Violate Your Code of
Conduct'. "defames or degrades a group for any reason including on
the basis of religion." Or, you can write something like, "by the power of L. Ron Hubbard I commend thee demon to subThetan hell."
The above exact comment it fit fits.

4. Read the comment from people and pick the ones that fit the
violation of the Code of Conduct.

5. Report the Violation!! That's it!! You are done.

6. Now rinse and repeat the same process from step 2 to 5..

Once you got the hang of it it get pretty fast and in one hour you
can report of lots of these nonsense comments!

If is only one person (me) reporting these issues, the Moderator at
Microsoft will not take the comment off. if you start to have 10 or
20 people reporting it, they are going to take this down.

LRH give an exact quote on the Price of Freedom that you find on
Tape 1 - Transcript page 32 - The Genus of Dianetics and
Scientology - ANATOMY OF THE HUMAN MIND CONGRESS. The same quote
appears also in the Tech Dictionary under the Price of Freedom.

Ok - there you have it!! This simple hatting is something that you
can use now for this or similar situations that may happen in the
future.

Over to you!
Best
Daniel

PS -- If you send me $500, I will email you valuable coupons you may use in the future at the Thetan Superstore.

You can spend around $400,000 over many years to practice Scientology as you are "audited" up to OT VIII over years, probably have to "disconnect" from your family, and let the CoS build up a huge blackmail file on you (since "auditing" is essentially confession, except they are tape recording everything and you're using a crude lie detector, and they are actively interrogating you).


All in the vain hope that you might eventually "blow" and gain the power to control MEST (Matter, Energy, Space, and Time).

The thing about Scientology is that it's more destructive of members' lives than most longer-lived religions are.

Look at Mormonism. It separates believers from family members who aren't Mormon, in the sense that, for example, if you get married in the Temple, family members who aren't Mormon can't go to your wedding. Various things like that. It does put up barriers. It enforces members tithing to the church as tightly as if it were an income tax.

But it stops itself with that tithe. It doesn't try to insist you leave all your money to the church instead of your family. It doesn't get way too greedy above your tithe--not way, way grabby about it. Sure, it's not going to turn it down, and it's gonna guilt you to give more, but not super-grabby.

It doesn't go for big slave labor. Sure, it'll try to get you for a missionary year, maybe more time doing missionary work if it can, but there's an understanding that you've gotta make a living and it's okay if you make money and live well and profit and leave money to your kids. You don't have to be super high up in the church for it to be okay for you to live well.

The Amish are exclude-y if you're not one of them, but they don't get all grabby of each other's stuff. They're more on the neighborly side and less on the top down control. They work together.

Scientology is: Top down control, they want your money, they cut you off from outside people, they punish leaving, they're secretive about their internal doctrines, they're paranoid (in the looking over their shoulder way of people who are up to something), they work lower-social-value adherents as slave labor, they're very aggressive and passive-aggressive about negative publicity, they have a history of an "ends justify the means" attitude towards dealing with what they perceive as threats.

Scientology has all the attributes of religious organizations through history that have not lasted. Generally, these organizations will last for some length of time--maybe a few decades or centuries--before their self-isolating and loose-cannon traits lead them to do something that goes too far and really pisses off the local Powers That Be in too many places at once. Or they'll accumulate too much wealth and become a tempting target. Or they'll finally outrage too many of the surrounding villagers with pitchforks and torches.

And then they get taken down.

One example is the Knights Templar. Whether they were good or bad, they were top down, secretive, made a point of concentrating wealth at the top, isolated themselves very much from the Powers That Be. Had their own religious rituals, again that were secretive. They got eaten.

Waco. Jonestown. Another fresh-sprouted set of repeats of extremist Islam every handful of generations. (The Koran and holy writings teach Islam is going to take over the whole entire world before Judgment Day, but doesn't specify when that is. Every few generations, some charismatic religious nutjob decides The End Is Near and that, therefore, Allah is On Our Side to Take Over the World, Right Now, Fellas, We Just Can't Lose! Then the rest of the world has to kick the new crop of nutjobs in the nuts over and over again until they finally get it, "Okay, okay. Judgment day not now. Inshallah," and go back to daily life. Which holds for a couple generations until the next charismatic nutjob gets squirrely again.)

Warren Jeffs' Fundamentalist LDS child-molesting polygamists are another example of a "religion" that goes on for awhile until the people around it just finally get outraged enough that their outrage outweighs their fear that the "shutting down religions" morality police will come for them, next. And then they go ahead and shut people like Jeffs and his crew of inbred idiots down.

There's all kinds of cults or religions that used to be religions and aren't now. Religions die all the time. Inflexible ones that make a goddamned nuisance of themselves to the neighbors are the ones that tend to die. Religions just take long enough to die (or massively mutate) that they (falsely) think they're immortal. Kind of like corporations think they're immortal, even though most corporations have shorter lifespans than most human people.

Sometimes religions evolve (massively mutate) when a top-down leader gets sick and dies-- Church Universal and Triumphant. Without E.C. Prophet's convincing doomsday predictions driving shelter-building and preparedness accumulations, the rest of the focus of their theology turns out fairly benign.

Scientology could undergo a life-saving (for it) revolution when Miscavige dies. If it lives that long. Or it could get more of the same.

What I see as the most likely end for Scientology is that it will do something outrageous, take the offending evidence or people to sea thinking the international waters and Scientology's ships will effectively make it its own country--which is the point behind its sea org thing--and will then be very surprised when its ships get surrounded, boarded, and taken into port (or sunk) with the perfectly international law legal agreement of the actual nation behind whatever flag of convenience they happen to be flying.

Alternately, somebody is just going to sink them, and they're going to be saying, "Huh? What? You can't do that! No fair!" But their shipping will be sunk and their assets and people gone, irreplaceable, permanently.

That's pretty much what happened to the Knights Templar. What happened to them was pretty much totally illegal. It happened fast, it happened in a single stroke, and dead men can't take it to court. So one day they were this huge international power with lots of money and men and a real force to be reckoned with, and the next day they were mostly dead and their assets confiscated and the ones that were left to be mopped up weren't enough to really do any major contesting of the matter. How can you contest dead and destroyed?

If I was Scientology, I'd really watch out for pissing off France. If France just decided to send special ops people, sink Sea Org, and deny the whole damned thing (come to think about it, it was France that did in the KT), none of the rest of the international community would be motivated to look too hard for alternate explanations.

"Oh, how sad. Well, mishaps at sea do happen. What a [sob] tragedy. Where should we send the wreath of carnations and mums?"

Just a few rambling thoughts this morning. Been without power for three days. Kinda writing off the top of my head.

Organizations like Scientology change or they die. They're like a disease that kills its host--not a successful model. They either become milder and learn to play nice in the sandbox with society, or society gets pissed off and kills the organization.

Kind of like smallpox, or polio.

If Scientology wants to quit getting hit with societal broad-spectrum antibiotics, it needs to quit acting like social syphilis.

thenewmissus: ExperianScaresCthulhu: thenewmissus: jmr61: thenewmissus: I didn't RTA, but I will say this: I knew a couple who were the nicest people. I was very good friends with their daughter. He was an architect and she was a VP of some company. They made very, very, good money. They were always kind to me (we are different races in the south) and I always thought very highly of them. I found out that they were Scientologists. No bid deal to me other than I thought it was interesting (we're talking '80's people). The husband died about 2 years of knowing Lisa and the wife died soon after (they were pretty young too). I just found out that they left their entire estate to the church and left their girls out of the will. I realize that it is their right to do so, but they loved their children, but the kids still got nothing. I suspect that Scientology wants to make sure that they get their share of the Tom Cruise pie. Tom's kids better get what they can now cuz they may not get crap later.


So who's Lisa again?

Sorry for the name drop without explanation. Lisa was my friend.

Forgive, but I'm with jmr61. why is knowing Lisa, your friend, important when discussing the death of this dude soon after this dude met Lisa? it is a very confusing post. did Lisa cause his death, or did knowing Lisa cause his death, or what?

Or is this a troll?

Ok. Maybe I didn't explain this properly. (I will change the names of the parents to protect Lisa). My friend, Lisa had parents who were Scientologists. We will call them Bob and Tina. Bob died (fairly young, around 55 or 60) and Tina died approximately a year later. Their children were around 22 (Lisa's sister) and 18 (Lisa) at the time. Bob and Tina left their entire worth to the Church of Scientology. End of story. I thought highly of them while they were alive, but I kinda felt like leaving their children with nothing was a big F U.

Any more questions


Is Lisa hot?

So let me get this straight. More people believe in UFOs than voter fraud. And you still can't get people to take Scientology seriously? That right there is bad PR. I mean they too Christianity seriously and it grew even when Christians were being fed to lions. They too Islam seriously when it was just a pedophile desert monk's dream. They took Judaism seriously even when the Jews couldn't navigate their way out of A paperbag for 40 years. Hindu is taken seriously even though they have an elephant man and a multi-handed Japanese porn inspiration for gods. Buddhism is taken seriously even with the leading symbol being a fat man living in India.

AND you can't be taken seriously even when many of the biggest stars of stage and screen support you?

They have experienced the Streisand effect several times now. It doesn't appear to have made them any weaker.


But this time they are trying to take on the whole internet community and delete every single comment that is negative about Scientology. When someone tries to take on the internet, always bet on the internet. I see Anonymous and /b/ having fun with this one.
