I've been out of communication with Scn for almost eight years now, and very glad of it. I haven't gone after them, they haven't gone after me, all is right with the world.
Actually, all was right with the world. My former FSM gave my phone number to someone in Scn, and now it's everywhere. This was right after their glorious "new releases".
Now these dipwads are calling and calling and calling, leaving messages for me. I have yet to answer the phone (caller ID, what a blessing), for when I do, I am going to pop a gasket and let whomever is on the other end hear exactly what I think of them and their "church".
I was going to be all clever with a script that would work like this:
Them: "Hi. This is Babs from L.A."
Me: "Wow, I'm glad you called. Are you ready to get out?"
Them: "Um, what?"
Me: "Well, you called. I'm guessing you got the message that, when you're ready to get out, you call me, and I arrange an extraction."
Then I thought a) that would be cruel, as I'm not in L.A. and in no position to arrange an extraction if, in fact, they wanted one; and b) I couldn't keep my cool and go through with it.
Instead, I'm gonna let my hard-blooded French Canadian temper shine right out, and give them all sorts of holy hell (at least the sort of holy hell that operates between 300 and 3kHz, the range of a phone line ).
Now, I hate it when I lose my temper, I consider it to be a weakness, not a strength. But these bastards don't listen to much else. They don't respect anyone, they don't care about anyone, and they are trained to manipulate you using any number of TRs and comm cycles. So any other sort of comm from me other than pure, unadulterated 1.5 anger, would be completely ineffective.
This is the Christmas season, for Christ's sake! I don't need a bunch of rotten bastards trying to scam me again!
