  2. Wasn't there some other heavily censored pro-Hubbard board that Freezoners were pimping on here a few months ago that lasted about a week?

    If it pulls suckers away from DM, I'm all for it. Hopefully they wont be fooled yet again.

    So, He-Man, you've never heard of moderated boards and private forums? How long have you been on the internet?

    It says no linking. It doesn't say you can't just quote the stuff in the body of your post. :)

    Yes, yes, since 96' or therabouts. Though it still fascinates me that Geir & co decides to stay "in the bubble" if you understand me.

    I like nattering! :happydance:

    Uh-oh! Just noticed that one of the moderators is 'Alex'. :unsure:

    I'm not saying I like it. I just see it as a lesser of evils. But still very evil. But at least DM would lose a ton of power.

    Ooh, Ooh! I know this one!

    Fool me once – shame on you.

    Fool me twice – shame on me.

    Fool me lots of times - call me a patron with knobs on! :happydance:

    Looks a bit too sanitary for my taste. Still, I guess there are a bunch of people who freak out at ESMB.

    Maybe it should be mandatory for exes to *rate the PL on duplicative functions before they start up *yet another* natter board, even a polite one. If these board owners got together and came to some agreement on what niche each would occupy, and promoted it, it might help. Otherwise it's kinda annoying to have to cruise around a bunch of boards all saying much the same thing, except each having its own honcho.

    There is still the matter of niche creep (no, not Alanzo), but one can at least try.

    I wont be registering over there. I don't need another clusterfuck of Scientology bullshit.

    Well I´m definitively gonna have it as an "accidental" link on my msnprofile for a couple of days to see if It could interest my parents to be non Co$ scientologists instead of DM followers.

    On the bright side, an actual forum can't help but be an improvement over the Rathbun Blog type thing. At the very least it should be possible to run a successful 'search' function; not that I thin Marty really wants people to be able to find anything but his latest red herrings and brilliances.

    That's your choice. And it's his choice to have his blog and his board the way he wants.

    He is quite critical of the cult and that is something a number of people here would have in common with him. At least that's something, right?

    Plus, dollink, he left a lot more recently than you did...probably it all seems quite different to him than it would to others.
  19. Voltaire's Child

    Voltaire's Child Fool on the Hill

    Well, there are people who make that choice. It's better than being in the cult, IMO.
  20. Iknowtoomuch

    I agree with that.
    I just know that board is going to be supportive of Scientology tech. And i'd suspect posts will be heavily moderated.
