    So being an anon is a bit like being a scientologist then. Arcane language and processing.

    Maybe Paul can ask his robot to do something on that. :)

    It would appear similar, but the difference is there is no formal guide. The words are arrived at their definitions by the creativity of the users. Popular ones become generally known and used.

    The difference is the lack of formality: Hubbard made jargon to define things his own way. Channers find expression through emergent consensus.

    Subject for a thesis? How this is accelerated by the net.

    A failure? this has been the largest protest ever against scientology, 10.000 members world wide protesting.

    You're obvious a scifag spy trying to change people's opinions/morale

    The big schism in 1982/3 had 450 scifags protesting in LA, per Alan. Unconfirmed reports but the recent LA protest was slightly higher. I saw roughly 400 in London.

    Biggest ever no doubt.

    100,000 worldwide? Can you verify anything like that?

    Actually more around 7-9 thousand. There were no hard counts, just estimates.

    There's only one 'stat'; more than the 'Church' could handle.

    not the point

    This isn't the point of what we are trying to do. the Co$ has tried to corrupt the last, and always free media of the Internet. Anonymous is the Internet community. The Co$ will not control it, as a matter of fact the opposite will happen. Google or use any search engine and look for information on Scientology or Al Ron Hubbard, and now you find information on Cults. That is a measure of our progress. Preventing and exposing the Co$ lies and corruption is a public form they have no control over.

    This does NOT necessarily represent a "positive" development. :melodramatic:

    I personally am not a great "believer" in the imaginary virtues of consensus, especially as applied to the evolution of language.

    The English language (English, 'Stryne, British, American, etc.) has an illustrious tradition of the apt coining of new words & phrases by clever & witty individuals.

    There is also, unfortunately, a lengthy tradition of the adoption of comparatively "ugly" slang usages as a result of "popular" consensus.

    Nor, are my comments intended as a defense of "hubbardisms". For what its worth (admittedly not much), I consider an excessive & widespread dependence on "scientologese" to be one of the more unnecessary problems facing the freezone.
