List of Media Coverage


And finally, the youtube video that was the equivalent of a declaration of war (and on ED, you can actually read the declaration of war):

Message to Scientology currently at 1,803,843 views and 16,501 comments and climbing.

ETA: ...and 276 video responses. Dear God.

This does explain some of the search results I've been getting back now.

*hands waaaaaaaay up*

Also, the Insurgency Wiki's Chanology's page has been... hacked? (I don't know if that's the word to use) Regardless, this is among the newest strategies they're taking: http://partyvan.info/index.php/Project_Chanology/Messengers_of_Xenu

I just read through the entire ED entry on Project Chanology and DAMN but it's freaky.

I always said Scientology was a freak-ass organization. February 10th will be interesting.

I marked it on my calendar myself.

Many links have collapse under robustitude. I saw the Message to Scientology video; what's happened since?

Three DDoS at least, crashed the scientology dot org hard, causing a retaliation hack and crash of 711chan, and planning RL protests. Just--stuff. So much stuff.

I've just spent two hours reading this stuff and just boggling.

*nods* Hours last night, I was hitting every link I could find.

(Deleted comment)
*hee* I did the same thing with mine.

I'm not sure. I heard about it a few days ago on a comm, but I have no idea if it's a massive "your head, let me screw with it" campaign or for real. Either way, it's kind of interesting.

I am not actually following it but I get the sense that it is *both*, actually.

I was just pleased to see that someone put out the 22 rules video; I damn well don't care to see riots or other fiascos of the that nature. And I really would adore seeing the Church of Scientology get taken down or at least further exposed and denied any legitimacy. (They're sort of SF&F fandom's dirty--well, not secret. Scandal, I guess? Crazy uncle in the closet? Something, anyway, especially if you've ever participated in SoCal con-going fandom, since Hollyweird is a hotbed of Scientology.) Someone who has been a participant in peaceful protests before and has seen all the ways it can go pear-shaped put those rules together--I was impressed at the level-headedness and practicality of it.

I have a lot of friends who are planning to attend one of the rallies. None of them are Anonymous, though a few of them are friends with Anons.

It's fascinating, really. Who will win: the multi-national, immoral, bullying cult. Or the easily distracted mob of geeks who have no concrete identity?

If there was a rally in Austin, I'd be tempted to join in.

God, I love this stuff. I have a friend who's an Anon, I'm going to hit him up for inside info as soon as I see him online.

*grins* And tell us. We will cheer!

It fascinates me. The Church of Scientology's practices bother me on a whole bunch of levels, so I'm really with Anon on this one, especially considering that Anon is being remarkably level-headed and mature about it in their own way. Who'd'a thunk, ya know?

Yeah. I have to agree with you there.

I'm actually thinking about going to the rally in Atlanta. It would be incredibly interesting.

I have to admit it would be.

Actually, this restores my faith in humanity. Even if Anon ultimatly fails, the sheer beauty, hope and energy of this enterprise is admirable and I will pray for success -in any form- be it only spreading the word about the evil and massive exploitation, not to mention stupidity, that is the CoS.
