Geir Isene has a new Natterboard!

    Except that Geir is not a KSW Scn'ist and the board is not KSW. If you'd actually go in and read the things people are saying and the dissenting opinions that are not only allowed but encouraged by admin, you'd know that.

    Thus do I refute your entire circular argument.

    If you look back you'll see that my point was that it's impossible to run a forum acceptable to KSW Scientologists unless it's prime directive is KSW. I'll accept that Geir doesn't slavishly follow KSW because he's said so. But, it's still unclear where the limits of freedom of Speech will be drawn on his natter board *because* it also attempts to pander to the KSW Scientologists, or, to be more honest, the Scientologists who are *not* squirrels.

    And I've already told you exactly how a venue of written words can be implemented without any party line or KSW thingies.

    We (I'm a mod there) also "pander" to critics. In fact, I recently defended a critic's post that someone thought should be edited/deleted and I didn't.

    Time will tell. So far I'd say the forum gets good marks for 'good intentions', but also for naivete.

    With you, of course, serving as sole arbiter. :p

    The Lurkers Guide To KSW

    GeirBridge: KSW, as needed, or whatever else floats your flagship.

    Church of Scientology: KSW, brethren, or we'd rather have you dead.

    MartyBridge: KSW, brethren, or we'd rather see you paralyzed.

    Is anyone else getting a "Warning: this site may harm your computer" message when visiting scnforum? I'm going to be mad if someone hacked the site.

    Issues of stability and security

    I have added an announcement to the forum:

    Yes, I think the site has been infected with body thetans.

    We just became aware of this and are checking into it.

    When I visited yesterday, it tried to slip me a Trojan! :ohmy:

    Thank goodness my Kung Fu was too strong. :yes:

    Having Mr Kaspersky riding shotgun helped as well, of course.

    Yes, someone told me yesterday in IRC and I've PMd Geir again. I hope it can be resolved soon. It's good to receive this feedback.

    I posted on a different thread, but it seems that it may be a simple typo between "" (bad) and "" (probably not bad.)

    I'm amazed it's taken so long to discover, and appalled that Geir's blog actually asks you to drop your security in Firefox. Unfortunately, since Geir disallows comments on the blog posting, I have only been able to bring it up here. Dropping your security in your browser is a BAD idea.

    I'm also banninated from a certain IRC channel for a) lurking (I have a shell, so I appear to always be logged in,) and b) bouncing in and out every few minutes for a day or so (I blame my IRC peer, Undernet SantaAna, but understand the reason for the ban.)

    The issue is not with but with another site hosted in the same network. This is apparent on the Google warning page:

    I have been in constant communication with Maiahost who is the hosting provider for They have sorted out a few sites on the network, but the one noted above is lingering (that site is not under their control, however). I will move home (to my own hosting facilities) if this does not sort out soon.

    We have verified the reason for the security issue. There was indeed foul play. Hell will be raised.

    Tory Magoo at Geir's place

    I'm lurking the Scnform now and then. I saw Tory Magoo had made a rather friendly introduction before Christmas whereby her intentions are questioned.
    Of course Tory is known for her YouTube condemnations of CoS and Hubbard so it's logical that some of the "true believers" has to feel uneasy by her mere presence. The dialogue is quite interesting to follow.

    Welcome to our place Tory!
