Scilons Target British Blogger
A British blogger has apparently been targeted by e-Scilons. After running this post on the London Anonymous protester Epic Nose Guy’s Court Summons for displaying a sign which (accurately) called Scientology a dangerous cult, the blogger received this message from his web host 1 & 1:
Dear *******, (Customer ID: ******) Thank you for continuing to use 1&1 Internet. We sincerely apologize for contacting you regarding this matter, but multiple complaints have been directed to us regarding a recent entry on your site Right Where You Are Sitting Now! – Exploring the Underground and Counterculture…so you don\’t have to! Please call us re: at your earliest convieniance (lol they can’t spell) quoting your customer reference number ********. In the meantime, if you would consider temporarily removing the entry, we would appreciate it.
Upon contacting 1 & 1, the blogger learned that all of the complaints came within the span of one hour and only two of the complainers left a name. What were the names, you ask? The first was “Mark Bunker”. Heh. Cute. For those of you who do not know, Mark is only one of the world’s most well-known critics of the Cult of Scientology. The second name wasn’t nearly as chuckle-inducing. It was the name of the blogger’s mother. This is just plain creepy.
Once the blogger explained all of this to 1&1, they dropped it and chalked up the complaints as a prank. Not really a prank, though. To use new underground Internet slang, suppressing critical speech is the new black for Scientology. It’s the in thing. Anybody who’s anybody is doing it! They’ve been doing it for a while in Clearwater. Heck, they’re trying it again RIGHT NOW! They’ve also tried it in Philadelphia. As a Toronto Anon accurately declared on her sign this past Saturday at Operation: FairGameStop, CULTS HATE TRUTH.
But the blogger is nevertheless understandably a little freaked out by how one of the plaintants gave his mother’s name. He has had a bit of a history with the cult, having been harassed while researching them (e.g., their personality test) during his Master’s Degree research. As he has surely learned by now, and as the Cult of Scientology administration is learning more and more by the day, when CoS tries to silence one critic they have to deal with ALL OF THEM. What this means in this case is that their attempts to have his post taken down will have the same effect as their attempts to take down their hysterical Tom Cruise video: many times more people will see what CoS does not want them to see. Their gun just doesn’t seem to run out of bullets for their feet, does it?
