Sporgeries

Lack of Proof


 

Scientology critics affirm that the Church of Scientology is behind the sporgery attack against Usenet. However, when challenged, it appears that they can't sustain these accusations with any substantial proof. The URL referred to by critics to enlighten newbies about the sporgeries doesn't bring forth anything else than guilt by association, as well as indulges in the usual mad distortions that sadly pass off as "criticism" in ARS.


Guilt by Association

If you want to have a look at what kind arguments is presented by critics to support their assertions, take a look at the page critics most often refer to when newbies enquire about the sporgeries : http://holysmoke.org/forgeries/forged.htm

This page, which is also used on Operation Clambake as an illustration for the "attacks upon ARS" offers no proof whatsoever other than critics' litany of accusations against the CoS (five items: remove group, rogue cancels, spamming, dead agenting, and raids). The author then makes a huge leap and accuses the CoS for the present sporgeries attack on the basis of guilt by association. Even worst, he introduces it as the 6th example, as if it was a proven fact, which it isn't.

Thereafter, the author offers no facts to sustain his assertion whatsoever, even if he appears to do so by listing all the ISP used by the sporgers. Such a list of course proves nothing in terms of correlation.

The author has added a disclaimer at the top of the page, saying that this page is nothing but his opinion, which is a rather weak attempt at trying to escape the responsibility that goes with the unsubstantiated accusations that he presents as established facts. The six points are further quoted by other pages without even that context.

Demonization

Apart from that, the page naturally engages in the usual twisted presentation of facts that is so typical of so-called critics, but this isn't the subject of the present page, so I won't comment on that. Except, though, for one particularly bit of nastiness. For the rest, check the legal precedent of the CoS vs the net and you may start to view things a bit differently.

What I want to address here is this particular statement taken from the said page:

"Scientologers in ARS have been posting articles by the tens of thousands that support neo-Nazi hatred; the supremacy of "white, Aryan" people; denial that the Holocaust occured; and messages that denounce "The Jew" as perfidious and evil and the source of all the world's ills."

This is an outright lie. I have never seen Scientologists engage in any of this either in the newsgroup or in real life. The author probably refers to the content of the sporgeries that at the beginning used texts taken from the white supremacists newsgroups. If this is the case, then keep in mind that 1) the author has still not proved that Scientologists were behind it and 2) even if they were, it still doesn't mean they support these ideas, but more that they would try to attribute them to critics whose posts they are forging. While this by itself is highly reprehensible, whoever did it, there is nevertheless no basis for the above statement whatsoever. It simply represents a further example on how far so-called "critics" are ready to try and demonize Scientologists without concern for what is actually true.
