the reason i hate it so much is because it represents everything i hated about the first Churches in europe. you pay $300,000 + fees to achieve a level of worship (or whatever) and the God is an alien overlord. not to mention the religion is based on a fictional book buy a Science fiction Author

after writing this post i realized something thou...

it's not much different the Christianity (or earlier forms of it at least).

Yes and that is the reason why I think the whole scandal is ironic.. On your way to a scientology protest you go in and donate to the Church.

Scientology is a straight out scam. The only difference is they don't rape little kids (yet).

Also, other churches (Christian for example) have leaders that truly believe there's a god, and do it out of heart, no for money. But those are rare.

Scientology was actually plagiarized, if you read one of the previous articles (about a week ago). This just makes it a bigger scam.

Check out the video of the Atlanta Police being totally corrupted. This kind of abuse of power makes me sick. Reports are that the police ticketed motorists who honked in support and made anonymous protestors take off there masks. Atlanta police you have been documented HERE!

You know, protesting would be so much more effective if the people protesting weren't such a joke... They look like a bunch of college geeks at a comic book convention. :eek:

Love the idea of anon, and i think the youtube videos are very well thought out though.

Anon is more than just what you see in the Protests. Those are just the ones who are activists and willing to get out and do something. The majority of Anon does not even go to protests, they do it all on the net.

I know, i've been keeping a close eye on the activities of anon. But these people protesting seem to be doing more harm then good.

I would disagree. The fact that there has been no violence and that people showed is a huge win. What is it the protestors are doing that in your opinion is doing harm? Besides they look like geeks - because they are geeks - but they are smart people and frankly if a bunch of geeks were pissed off at me I would be frickin scared who knows what they will think of with all that brain and people willing to execute crazy plans.

Doubtful. They probably were just executing some information gathering. Wrong as it might be the police feel they need to have inside information and obviously they were getting help from Scientology in identifying the people in Anon that they wanted to talk to. They were just using some of the tactics that have been brought back from Iraq. Some of the police were real cool, check out this clip.


Its not all police - just the ones where there is corruption in the high ranks - like ATLANTA!

Thats OK though - the Atlanta police showed there cards early in this. It is real good to know ahead of time where your bad apples are.

Personally i feel that they are provoking hostility towards the organization. Sooner or later an over-zealous protester is going to cross the line and give reason for the police to take legal action against anon. (Im sure because of the protest and the fear that a protest could turn violent, the church of Scientology is looking for a reason to fight back against anon)

As well, they are giving anon the face of adolescents (not necessarily a bad thing). In my experience and from what I've seen protesters are often there simply to be a part of something. They'll sign petitions without knowing or caring what its for, Penn and Teller went around a protest and had people sign a petition to ban the use of water.

I could be wrong, In fact i'd prefer to be wrong. But i just can't imagine these small protests are doing more good then harm. They are getting themselves arrested, they are getting people fined for honking their horns, they aren't getting very much attention from the media. Maybe i don't understand the motives behind the protest, but i can't imagine this is a tip of the scales in the movement against Scientology.

on the issue of whether or not they're helping, I agree with TH

Geeks = Technologically inclined intellectuals
and the technologically inclined are a force to be reckoned with in this day and age.

So what scientology has is some of the greatest lay-thinkers in the world, who know HOW to mess them up, uniting and doing all they can in order to do so

I believe it is good for them to see the adolescent face of Anon on the front lines and for the Adolescent face to get a look first hand at what can happen. These are our future activists people.

I mean these kids that are taking to the street are those protestors of the future. Anonymous really did not need a Worldwide protest in this day and age. They could have protested one place with enough media coverage and if they had a PR staff they could have probably forced Scientology or the cops into some move that would have been an epic PR win. The fact they have Worldwide support opens the field for both sides to pick and choose there PR spots.

In this case, the big PR spot is Atlanta where the police let the Videos get released and failed to realize the technology and how many people were actually tuned into this event. This is a sign of an aged corrupt system that has not been challenged. Atlanta is ripe for change and I hope Anonymous presses there protests there, they should do them daily. Just to see how far Atlanta and the world will let a corrupt police go because if I know the old timers out there - they slipping up and Atlanta corrupt guys get ready - you are being documented.

I would put any Anon youth against any Scientology or brainwashed government youth any day.

The media plays such a huge roll in how the world views things. Scientology has a slight advantage on anonymous when it comes to PR. :(

    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
