    Wouldn't it be funny if HBO made a deal with Marvel for the rights to Xemu the Merciless and turned around and sued Scientology for BILLIONS regarding copyright infringement? :smoking::scnsucks::drama2:

    Yeah but they spend tons on yapping about "who is David Miscavige?" and then droning on about how he spearheaded the unprecedented expansion, blah, blah, blah. But nothing about Ron the fucktard.

    They produce movies and lawsuits attacking those who badmouth wee Davey but Ron gets lambasted and there's not even a peep.

    As they once said in the description of the alt.religion.scientology newsgroup on USENET:

    "He's dead, Jim."

    Admiral Miscavige signs the checks these days, along with pretty much running everything. Defending Dr. Hubbard is a path with no cheese.

    What a boring piece of overkill. All those animated letter icons flying around and not really meaning anything, just like asserting that someone called or e-mailed HBO or Alex Gibney over and over and over. That video could have made its point such as it was in a minute or two, but noooooo they had to drone on and on with that busy library music in the background. The HBO program was tightly edited and makes this thing look whiny and full of sour grapes. ScienCorp always tries to marshal a bunch of volunteers together to make a point but they can't hide the decades of bad-to-illegal behavior and dictatorial policy and it really pisses them off to face the music in the court of public opinion.

    Did any of their letters ask for a response? Normally, a demand letter makes a demand, provides a time frame for when the demand is to be met and lists the possible actions the party will take if the demand isn't met. Without these very basic free legal aid steps the letter is nothing more than a memo. It doesn't ask for a response nor is it a demand letter. IMO- these letters are only for internal PR.

    OSA has to churn them out to try to match the "entheta" with an equivalent or higher numbers of PR items which "handle" the "entheta". It's one of their stats. The wog world media seems to have OSA on a treadmill of time wasting, and promotion for anti scientologists.

    I kinda like it when the cult sues big organizations like HBO. Shelling a few millions out to their shysters will re-animate local business, but since it's so relatively little money, no bank will suffer from that.

    Judges can justify their existence, some lawyers can make a few [STRIKE]honest[/STRIKE] bucks, so everyone should be happy.

    Actually you kinda can't blame the guy! It's gotta be the EASIEST money-making client ever. He just spins & spins whatever they say they want, hands them his mountain of bills and BOOM gets a super-easy payday. Kinda does sound "whorish" :coolwink: Lay on your back, flop around a bit, blah blah blah, pay me! :biggrin:

    Are they for freaking real? They went to an asthma expert to counter a paragraph in a BOOK? I didn't think I could possibly laugh any harder than I have been in this thread. I wonder how many people got credit in their weekly stats for this one. OMG this is about the most pathetic thing I've ever seen! :omg:

    We are very busy....yet we will put 25 people on a plane with reams of evidence & paperwork to come and see you. For a meeting that has never been set up. No place, date, time; but we will be there. :duh::clap:

    Well, now that the cult has Dr. Shapiro's written expertise, they might nor dare to say that Da Midget had to uncontrollably beat people up because of an uncontrollable episode of asthma. :giggle: :thumbsup:

    One thing annoying about the cult's attack videos is the narration, which drones on attacking relentlessly, accompanied by annoying background music. There's no balance or restraint at all. It's attack all the way, never defend or even discuss. It also reminds me of Miscavige's style in speeches, as he drones on spouting stats about miles of wire and feet of cable, thinking the more stats he throws out, no matter how stupid, it makes him sound convincing. There can't be any pauses for the listener to question the validity of what he's saying, or give them a chance to think.

    And I agree with others who have noticed that the elephant in the room of these attack videos, is any refutation or even comment about the biography of L. Ron Hubbard by Wright/Gibney as presented in the documentary. They can't even even quote Ron and claim he "didn't have a second wife."

    When they say things like Marty put his "fist in the face" of his ex-wife, okay, so he shook his fist at her, is that what he did? And he may have threatened to send her to the moon, but is that it? Seriously, he didn't hit her or anything, so they have to word Marty's losing his temper like it's a big crime.

    Marty slapped enough people around, you'd think they'd talk about that, instead of playing word games. Perhaps they don't want to remind the remaining zombies that Slappy didn't do anything about Marty's psychopathic rampage for three years while he was Slappy's right-hand man.

    We all know it is a show for the members, because they're the only ones who are going to believe both Wright and Gibney are evil and worthy of condemnation, because L. Ron Hubbard is the greatest...and anyone who says he isn't is a...and must be destroyed.

    About Slappy getting violent during an asthma attack when he was a kid, so why doesn't he say how he was? True, most people are gasping for breath and kind of panicking during an attack, but maybe he was the exception, and it triggered other emotions, like anger. This is possible, although uncommon. He was probably the exception.

    Pardon my scepticism about DM's violence having been brought on by an asthma attack, but I'd be inclined to go with Dr Shapiro's expertise in this field and suggest that that was most likely a convenient excuse.

    30 secondes of this voice and we are done....irritated

    I think the voice, the non-stop aggressive accusations, the speed without pausing is designed on purpose - like a kind of hypnotic speech to create , in the audience, a ''warrior'' mood - instead of letting the slaves at ''effect'' about the documentary and the former top executive who spoke out.

    No need to discuss anything - only shooting attacks , and the group react as an indocrined group...'' these are our ennemies, the espees, they attack us, we attack....

    Typical of Cult of [STRIKE]$cientology[/STRIKE] collective psychopathy :unsure:
    They don't even have time to think... and they are forbidden to disagree...

    For the genreal public audience... It's so obvious this cult is sick, evil and one would even think about joining it now, neither let their kids and family approach a [STRIKE]Church [/STRIKE] mind manipulation base.

    When $cienos come back home, after they watched these nasty pieces, I wonder if it comes to their mind that : What they do the the former members who speak..they can do it to me as well ????:nervous: Better vanish now, quietly without sorrow...'':unsure:

    Half of my sibling suffer sever asthma- I've often seen them in crisis, with need of emergency care at the hospital.

    They are feeling so bad in trying to find air and breath that they don't even can get into any comm neither confrontation..they just try to get survive...
