Helluva thing to read this newsgroup after not
reading it for over a year.
ARS has become a carricature of itself. Ugly sonbitch.
ARS = the mother of all on-line cultish groups. And the mother
of all straw dogs, is the ARSCC version of Scientology
We used to have some fun on this NG, (believe it or not) Looks
like a wasteland to me now. (and a waste of time) The ARSCC
(which doesn't exist), in an insane war with an evil criminal
cult. (which also doesn't exist) YAWN - how can combatants
(either side) take this bull so seriously. ya all need to run
repetitive "lighten up to EP" for a few hundred hrs.
(and then maybe get a life)
Yeh, from the perspective of this newsgroup the pickets etc.
are very noble, brave etc. But from any rational perspective,
picketers are mostly playing the role of the fool even though
praised as heros in their own little world.
And what are
doing even bothering to post here. Why play with these people?
Usenet can be fun, entertaining, educational, and even useful.
BUT... you can get so rapped up in it and so sucked into it
that you think you're a warrior
taking part in the making of history, when in reality you're
just the same old you and you're just jerk jerking off. (to
the cheers of other jerks doing the same)
Saving people from Scientology? Protecting the world from
domination by an evil cult? Yeh, sure, whatever.
What a waste. All this time and effort could be going into
something worthwhile or useful in the real world.
Didn't see it at the time, but Bernie
was right all along. Ya all are whatchya think you're
fighting. All of ya.
But of course YOU know the TRUTH and you're so damn right and
now ya got yourself in a position ya can never back away from.
Of such things are traps made.
