Hm...

It's hard to see why and why not.

I've never heard of the Church of Scientology in my live until now...

It's really a cult (or rather, most believe it is a cult). It was formed by a science fiction writer about 50 years ago. They only accept rich people, and require mass payments for "cleansing".

Btw, how is the Co$ doing right now?

Winning members? Losing members?


Anyhow, fine choice by wikipedia :)

I think it was a good choice by Wikipedia, because it would be too easy to change articles on the site in favour of Scientology.

Have you been living under a rock? :p

This is a good move though. Of all organisations out there, the CoS seem more likely than many to advance their own agenda.

he lives in Taiwan, it is to be expected since this "cult" if you will, is US based for the most part.

I suppose if you didn't generally keep up with such "important world affairs" as the activities of the aforementioned cult then you might not be aware of them, but news has been posted here quite a bit previously.

Scientology is just as legitimate a religion as anything else. I love when people dismiss it as a "cult". All religions started off as cults. If the Church of Scientology is banned from something, all other religions should be as well.

The church of scientology is getting in trouble with wikipedia because they keep deliberately editing and falsifying pages. Other religious groups do not consistently do that. Scientology also has an official policy of attacking and suppressing opposition to them, such as unflattering pages on wikipedia. Most religions just leave that to the fanatics rather than make it official policy.

As an atheist I am highly offended by that and tell you to go find out what an atheist is.

NEVER compare ATHEISTS to scientologists.

Heh, they're both the same.

Scientologists are idiots who thinks they're a religion

Atheists are people who don't have one.

And then they complain why Atheists cap on religous radicals like Vicboy... *sigh*

They do complain about a lot of stuff together....

Does anyone even like them anymore?

And they are technically athiest since they don't believe in a god. They got aliens with giant golden planes that fly through space and volcanos and stuff. Like evolution... kinda.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!

    Finally finding about some of the bots that are flooding the users online - bytespider apparently is a huge offender here - ignores robots.txt and comes in from a ton of different IPs

    @The Helper I'm really not seeing the "Signature" link in the sidebar on that page. Here's a screenshot:
