Flubbtard, Scilon, $cientrollogy... we've got a million of them, but is it helpful?
When we use terminology like this, it makes the board less accessible to outsiders, whether they're regular members of the public who are looking to learn more about Scientology or recent or even not-yet ex-Scientologists. It can also come off as petty and childish. At the same time, we certainly don't want to perpetuate the myth that the CoS is really a "Church" in any meaningful sense of the word, so we are trapped with either using their terminology and accidentally giving them some subconscious level of legitimacy in the eyes of the lurkers here or we are caught looking petty, silly, or incomprehensible.
David Miscavige in particular is an important one in my mind. People who are looking to learn more about what has gone wrong in the CoS need to know who he is and what he's done, but it's hard to keep track of the thousands of insulting names people have come up for him. There's also the very good chance that he misses it in his daily "what are they saying about me on the internets" briefing as a result of the various abbreviations and corruptions we use, and I want that miserable little fucker to read every single word.
Anyway, what are your thoughts? I'm not advocating any particular action or inaction here, I'd just be interested to see a little discussion on the matter.
