Me and Scientology
I'll expand this section considerably when I can be bothered. In the
meantime I have the following, in roughly reverse chronological order or
so. But first, be sure to read why I am doing all
September 1997: Calls to both Suburbia and Thingy from someone claiming to be a private
investigator, wanting information on my activities through said ISPs. This is
100% standard procedure for a Noisy
Investigation. (See also the OSA Points
Calculator for how the CoS figures out who's a worthy target.)
I'm not sure why it's happened this time, but I suspect the spreading of the Xemu Leaflet may have
something to do with it. Or maybe they were just bored again.
April-May 1997: The judgement came through that the RTC
doesn't have the rights to the NOTs - a bankrupt corporate shell called the
CSC does. And they can't sue until their debts are clear. So I posted 'em to
see what the Church would do. I have a pile of stuff on
the subject for your entertainment.
The final outcome was that they didn't do anything ... they gave me material to threaten them back
with. Silly Co$.
Meeting with Brian Johnston, Australian CoS
November 1996: Got this call asking for a meeting with Brian
Johnston, roving researcher for the local CoS. Frank Copeland, Cyril Vosper and I went along to meet him and
public Scientology member (and a.r.s poster) Tim Jones. Here's the initial report on the meeting; a transcript
will follow. (When I find the tape. And here I was hassling Frank to hurry
up with it [blush] ...)
1995 onwards: Unsubstantiated legal threats under Californian
state law sent to me, an Australian citizen who has never set foot in the US
and has no intention of doing so. How pointful.
1995 to 1997: I started posting to alt.religion.scientology from my
firstname.lastname@example.org account at Victoria University of Technology, which
I was attending and working at in 1995. The Church of Scientology
decided that attacking my account would be a good way to stop my criticism
of the Church's activities. Um, yeah.
- 28 Jul 1995 - in response to my
having posted six lines (The Famous Six Lines) of old OT-VII on
a.r.s and commenting on it.
This is the generic version she sent to over fifty different people.
- Response to above
(paraphrased-from-memory version sent to VUT Info Tech).
- 07 Aug 1995 - a second one when I
responded by doing it again. (Just the six lines.) Note her attempts to
localise the threats.
Late 1995: Xenu is the Galactic Emperor who brought the
excess population of the Marcabian Empire to Earth and destroyed them by
strapping them to volcanoes, or so L. Ron Hubbard would have you
believe. We decided to publish a magazine named after him in late
1995. The Church was not happy about this.
