Denial of Service Attack

Perhaps I spoke too soon about Fair Game having been cancelled.  In either event, last night this blog received a coordinated Denial of Service Attack in the form of thousands of spam comments.  It is continuing unabated. I apologize to those who posted legitimate comments to the post WORSE THAN FAIR GAME that have not appeared on the blog.  I am quite busy at the moment and do not have the time to sort through thousands of spams to find the legitimate comments.  I have queried Word Press for a more efficient means to deal with this. In the interim,  if you wish to comment you can try my second blog, https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2010/10/23/casablanca-tejas-population-4/.  Chances are they’ll target it too.  But, what the hell, as a wise man once said “when in doubt, communicate”, or when someone tries to unmock you the thing to do is just keep putting out more anchor points.

  1. Yeah, I posted a couple of comments that didn’t show up. From your experience, do you think Miscavige is aware of these types of capers being pulled or do you think it’s renegade?

    • It is precisely as laid out in Mike RInder’s comment. He is right on the money. That is how it goes down. The creeps who fly air cover for Miscavige by saying L Ron Hubbard made him do it, are doing just that, flying air cover for a CRIMINAL.

  2. I’m guessing the Bolivar piece was cutting a little too close to the bone.
    Keep at it, Marty.

  3. Guess your post was right on the money!

  4. Marty,

    I guess current actions are driving Dear Leader to a new round of vein popping! I can imagine it: “Do something about him you incompetent m*****f***ers. NOW!!! Or you will think the Hole is a holiday camp.”

    As Warren and Linda leave the beating session they look at one another and shrug:

    “There’s nothing we can do, you know that spamming doesnt work and just makes us look bad.”

    “Yeah, but we have to DO something as Lou is going to call us in 5 minutes and demand to know how we handled it.” So, they get on the phone “Flood the blog now.”

    And then:

    “You know, we did this before and still ended up in the lake….”

    “OK, let’s send out emails to everyone saying we got secret information from the blog that the Independent movement is really a scam…”

    “Nobody will buy that. And we would have to admit that we hacked the blog???”

    “We have to do something, do you want the crap beaten out of you again?”

    “OK, send the email…”

    • L🙂 O🙂 L – Mike this version of “management” has filtered down the crap-hill far and wide.

    • If only they were that uptone! That was hilarious!

      High Ho, High Ho, it’s time for me to BLOW…

    • Soooo Funny!
      It’s always good to get a proper ack for one’s actions. Davey, did someone shine the light of truth on the most important alterations from which you derive most power? Anyway, thanks for letting us know which subject to really expose; your encouragement is greatly appreciated.

    • Mike,
      Your example is is so spot-on accurate. The reason these “attacks” are so damn lame is that the minions doing the actual dirty work do NOT have their hearts in it. They do it solely out of FEAR and TERROR of what Miscavige might do to them if they fail to do something that gains his favor.
      They are terrified. He is blowing gaskets and demanding effective action and, even though they know there is nothing effective they can do, they do these stupid foot-nuke actions as Miscavige always INSISTS on attacking full force.
      I’ve been there, seen it, done it too.

    • It is very hard to imagine HOW clearing a planet could have turned into such an aberrated action on the part of all parties involved.

    • I’m laughing!
      Thanks.

    • The smartest, most OT, most effective and damaging thing to DM and his corrupt regime is for someone inside to grab hold of a spark of theta and using a digital voice recorder pen, RECORD SOME OF DAVE’S INCRIMINATING STATEMENTS. It can be done. There is someone who can and will do it, especially if they’re already planning to leave. If this idea is illegal, then this is only hypothetical, of course.

    • Mike,
      Ok, so then Lou calls in 5 minutes and gets a verbal report from Warren? And does Warren then report exactly what he did? And does Lou relay that verbal report to DM? Or does DM purposely keep himself out of the loop of exact information so he’ll have plausible denial? Do the specifics get put into a written report? Are there files on these reports? Is there any way of getting one’s hands on any of those incriminating reports if they exist?

      • ΘTater/GaryLerner

        OTDT,

        My belief/Knowingness about DM’s culpability is that since he has, “in-person”, hit/attacked people under his toe (foot-bullet vs thumb-bullet🙂 ), that he knows about the details of his “executive” orders (in the case of David Miscavige, the term “executive” is more of an action in that he is actually “executing” theta as that’s the prime goal of this SP).

        The term CONTROL FREAK really describes him perfectly!

        Gary (a villager with a torch and a Bic)🙂

    • ΘTater/GaryLerner

      Absolutely hilarious, Mike!

      Do you think that Linda and Warren have “reserved” accommodations in the “Hole” for them? Little mints on their respective pillows? Shoes shined for them? Fruit baskets? Complimentary cold compresses for their bruises? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    • Gawd Mike.

      You should have titled this post ‘Inside the Mind of OSA and the Mental Midget Running it’

      One sad fact is that it was too late for Halloween.

  5. Marty:

    This could not possibly have come at a better time.

    I was very determined to make a point to a person that posted something to your BLOG that I thought was just off kilter a bit, but not reprehensible.

    So, I guess it won’t get posted what I wrote. Oh well. I guess I will just have to wait until that topic comes up again. Hopefully by then my whole life will be different.

    I am sorry you had a DOS attack, in spite of it all.

  6. Thank you Marty (and everyone else in support of this) for what you are doing to bring about change. You have sane responses to what is being thrown at you and these are appreciated.

    As LRH says in Scn Axiom 54:

    “A tolerance of confusion and an agreed-upon Stable Datum on which to align the data in a confusion are at once necessary for a sane reaction on the eight dynamics. This defines sanity.”

    I think this applies.

    Another scale to be looked at is the Tone Scale of a Social Organism:

    “Tone 4 Society: A free society, working in complete cooperation toward common goals.

    “Tone 1 Society: A society managed and dictated to by the whims of one man or a few men (War is an international Tone 1.)”

    Any rational person would pick the correct society to be part of unless they are so suppressed they are afraid to do so. It is our job to help change that.

  7. I thought something was going on yesterday when I received a couple of pretexting (spy) phone calls which I mentioned on Twitter. Pretexting is explained in this short article: http://www.scientology-cult.com/church-uses-pretexting-technique-to-spy.html

    The first call used the number 310-448-6034 which is “Do not call message center” for Investors Business Daily. IBD sends out trial subscriptions then calls to see if you want to continue the subscription. The only thing is, I never received any trial subscription from IBD and I am not an investor. So it is doubtful that this company would get my cell phone number which is registered with the National Do Not Call list. More likely it was an example of pretexting.

    The second call was from “402-555-1212 Dir Asst NE” — that number belongs to Long Distance Directory Assistance. This one came to my home phone a few hours later.

    Thoughtful

    • I guess we’re under a full frontal from beneath the rock attack.

    • I am not a person prone to suspicions that are unfounded. I am a very scientific think however and an artist in my own right.

      Although this may be a comment that is destined for the sidelines *I* received a call yesterday verified by my telephone service as originating from the telephone number: 00-000-0000-0000.

      Now is that possible? I guess so but I would never try dialing it, I would only reach an operator no doubt.

      • Lawrence, read the article I quoted in Scientology-cult. “Pretexting” means to contact someone under a pretext, posing as someone else, etc. The CoS does this usually to determine someone’s location. There are websites where someone can call but it will show a phony Caller ID. They can put in all zeros, or put in your own telephone number, anything they want in order to obfuscate where the call is originating from.

        • Even if it did come about through somebody “pretexting” that does not mean that it is not a waste of time on the party of the party originating it.

          These kind of things are not so important to me as other things.

  8. Given the amount of TA that post generated, it is not surprising that it turned on DM’s Rock Slams….justice is a HOT button.

    • Theo Sismanides

      Tom, yes, you are right, that post has definitely turned on DM’s rock slams, hahaha. He sees now an area where he cannot exert his Power and the Responsibilities of Leaders PL cannot influence anyone in that area anymore. And that area is the wild factor now as it grows bigger in a suprisingly wild rate day by day with the best of Scientologists among its ranks. Losing power Dave, it’s just natural, especially for an SP like you have been for so long. Now you get exposed and good people and staff leave in droves. A leader has responsibilities not just minions.

  9. har har har

  10. Damn it, Marty! Were you ” being there” and “communicating” again? I thought you knew better than that.

    Let that be a lesson to you.😉 BE THERE! COMMUNICATE! START!
    LOL

  11. Mary, If you can gauge your effectiveness by the effort being made to stop you, you have scored many direct hits.

    Ironic that the Church worked so diligently to prosecute those behind the DDOS attacks on their sites and may themselves be involved in doing exactly the same thing to others.

  12. Someone with the email address of lt07042010@hushmail.com sent around a very nasty email today. He or she, well let’s just call him OSA, even tries to identify some of the posters on this blog. Gee, you still haven’t figured out who I am, have you? Ha! True to my promise, when a troll surfaces I will post info on where to send reports if the cult refuses to repay/refund your money. Here you go.

    For anyone wanting a repayment/refund here’s where you need to write. These are government agencies and WILL respond to you. Your complaint will not be ignored.

    For the IAS here’s the one to use. It’s in CA.
    http://ag.ca.gov/charities.php
    http://ag.ca.gov/charities/eri.php#Location:SearchResults
    You can plug in their EIN number, just above the “search” button to get the exact name they go by. It’s very hard to find the name otherwise.
    Put the EIN number in your complaint.
    It’s 521840679
    This complaint has to be printed out & mailed via the US Mail.

    For Flag or the Ship this is the one in FL. It’s under the Attorney Gen’s office, Dept of Consumer Services, Bureau of MEDIATION & Enforcement.
    http://www.800helpfla.com/complnt.html
    Under Consumer Complaint Form click on “online form”. With this one you can submit it online and attach any docs.
    Note: when you fill in this form, under each question, every time you add in another line of info it shrinks the print. By the time you’re done anyone reading it will need a magnifying glass. The best thing is to do is write on the form referring them to your attached complaint.
    Also, the form asks when you paid. If it’s a real old date, the form might not take it. Put today’s date and explain in your attachment.

    Go for it. If enough of these show up on their desks, the CofM risks an all out gov investigation. Remember, most of the people asking for repayment/refunds are NOT in their 20′s & 30′s. Most are 50 and older. Think “elder abuse”. Gov doesn’t like that.

    • My experience in life as a Microsoft Certified Partner among other things has taught me that 99.9% of people that have e-mail addresses such as:

      123456789abcdJim@yahoo.com
      or
      0987654321dcbaKim@aol.com

      are people that are uneducated in many things, whether they work in behalf of the Scientologists or not.

      Most people choose an e-mail address suitable to their tastes or professions in life.

      An example of a professional person’s e-mail address might be:

      Carolyn@ ISP.net.

      It just takes saavy.

    • I received the same email. This person has it wrong on many counts. I know at least a dozen people that are not listed that are either regurlarly reading and/or posting on this blog including me, LOL. You better get to work you can potentially 10X your list. Oh, that’s right, I have it wrong, you don’t want the list to be long🙂

      In any case, whether the Independant movement is 50 or 100’s strong it doesn’t change anything about my decidion to leave the Church & my deep respect & admiration for Marty, Mosey, Mike & all others that are standing up to the suppression.

      Marie-Joe

    • Most Scientologists who now turned 50 joined SCN or the IAS very young and elder abuse doesn’t apply. People over 60s are considered elderly in the USA.

      Yeah, you’re “safe” unless OSA compels your IP to turn over your posting protocols.

  13. The day will come when David Miscavige loses his Power position.
    When that day comes, his name will become mud within the Church of Scientology.
    Many current members already despise him for the goose shit he is.

    • David Miscavige already has a very bad reputation already. By the time he is no longer head of the church he will be chased down the street by baseball bat wielding mobs I think.

      Not that I wish violence upon this person, but for goodness sakes to do something like throw contact lens cleaning fluid in Heber Jentzsch’s face and then blow powdered coffee creamer all over him and his glasses…that is something to be remembered for?

      Not in my book. I will never be one of the runners swining one of the bats and screaming but I know for sure they are out there and we are going to meet! {LOL}

      • Much better to order the following C/S to the man with the little ….. :
        Run R2-45 SOLO to full EP.
        Remember to get your 3 swing F/N at Exam.
        And write a SS.

        • I prefer the baseball bat theory. It is much more popular on television shows such as “The Munster’s” or “Laurel & Hardy”.

        • I kind of prefer the George Carlin Execution Entertainment Channel, where you cut the guy’s head off and it rolls down a chute and you bet on which colored bucket it’ll roll into. That would be fun and possibly financially fortuitous.

          • David Miscavige is a guy that is not in his right state of mind {whatever that may happen to be as he has a reputation of smacking his PC’s in the face since he was in his 20’s}.

            He physically resembles a person that drinks a great deal and is frequently out of plumb {an LRH term in the Tech Dictionary}.

            His leadership abilities are NULL, Zero! Any person that puts their motorcyle before Mankind’s spiritual freedom is looking for trouble and will very often find it.

            As far as beheading him is concerned, in France this may be legal as guillotining was abolished but not totally outlawed.

  14. Yup, received that same lame email this morning. Did this sort of sophomoric
    stuff ever work?

    yawn.

    • Luna,

      No, of course it doesnt work. It is exactly as I said above. The heat is on and the minions are being told “DO SOMETHING”. They know it is not going to accomplish anything (except blow the very poor “cover” of another one of their oh-not-so-smart operatives) but they have to act because they cannot report back to Dear Leader “Sir, we did nothing.”

      It’s how all these amazing foot nukes are born. Dear Leader issues orders. Sycophants comply (whether here or Tommy dealing with the media or their nutty testimony in depositions) and then when they inevitably blow up, Dear Leader then demands to know what SP is responsible for the latest disaster: “Some Ev Purp c***sucker is trying to destroy me.” Believe it or not, it never occurs to him to look in the mirror to find the c***sucker! It would be a real easy string pull. But, self-introspection isn’t one of Dear Leaders strong suits.

      Three cheers for Miscavige brand (r) Golden Scientology(tm)!

    • Some fucking moron posted that email to ESMB without redacting the names of the parties being “outed”. I just now saw it and have reported to the mods and asked them to delete the entire thread, as people have been copying the whole thing in replies.

      Michael A. Hobson

      • Mike, they have corrected it! Thanks!!

        • @Mosey: the poster seems to have been innocent of bad intent and I have had to apologize for getting too snippy about it. But, even Alanzo seems to have realized that data shouldn’t be there and removed the copy of it from his post on that thread, so it’s definitely gone.
          Michael A. Hobson

  15. Marty, not surprising. Its called FEAR.

  16. Well, Marty, I guess your hit stats are up!

  17. There are some excellent anti-spam plugins available for WordPress, although I’m not sure whether you can use them with a blog hosted at wordpress.com or if you can only use them when you have it installed on your own web server. Here’s a good rundown of the plugins available:

    http://mashable.com/2008/02/10/fighting-spam-wordpress/

  18. WE must be winning.

    The SPs are howling.

  19. Marty, sorry for your overtime work of having to wade though spam swamps.

    It is actually an acknowledgement for you.

    That recent fair game discussion here must have been missing withholds as if there was no tomorrow.

  20. Marty,

    Keep on outflowing the truth. Good job

  21. I just realized that DM reads this blog daily. Otherwise the attacks would not have a rhythm to them. Todays attacks come after the Bolivar post. So I guess Marty hit a real raw nerve there.

    So I decided to write directly to you David. This will arrive to you faster than through church lines. Here is todays letter to you:

    I know a little secret that you have: You don’t like it when you get called out. Just like that day in the Manor in 1990 when you came back from the Freedwinds and checked out the progress on the Manor renos. The day before you came to the Manor you released your stupid amnesty which also let go of the RPF. The comm cycle went like this:
    “Tom, Where the fuck are the RPF?”
    “Uh, they are gone, Sir”
    “Per what??”
    “Per your amnesty., Sir”
    “Tom, what the fuck are you talking about?”
    “Your amnesty also let the RPF off.”
    “It did?”
    “Yes, it did. Do you want to read it? RTC Order #4. Came out during the Maiden Voyage anniversary yesterday.”
    (Blows up) “No I don’t want to read it!”
    “Okay Sir, just saying that you’re the one who wrote it – I guess.”
    “Are you blaming me for the RPF being gone?”
    “Yes. Sir. They read your amnesty this morning and the RPF I/C let them go.”
    “Where’d they fugging go?”
    “Back to their orgs, Sir.”
    (Blows a gasket) “Alright, fuck you, you’re off post. Get the fuck out of here.”
    “Uh, no Sir. You can’t take me off of post. I’m Staff Status 4 for chrissake. It would take a comm ev to bust me off post. And you aren’t LRH so you aren’t senior to his policy.”
    (Looks at the ceiling for three minutes: Then you say): “Ok, have a nice day.” and then gone.

    So all anyone has to do is tell you to go screw yourself David because you are really full of crap. You really need the Bolivar HCOPL to trick people into following your lead because you ain’t got the mojo anyhow. You’re just not a real leader. A real leader would have gotten in comm with me. A jealous child would have kicked me under the bus.

    Tom

    • I guess that is a real comm cycle that actually happened and the words are as good as you remember them. My hat’s off to you!

    • @Tom: The ability to hold one’s position in space is perhaps the fundamental trait of an OT. Well Done!
      Michael A. Hobson

    • Theo Sismanides

      Tom, this is so good and so hilarious at the same time. My hat is off to you too, the little monster had enough nerve from back then… Well, now some of us know better and have found a safe place from where to communicate, Dave. Get as freaky as you want, you get not impact now… except on your minions. YOU are not the leader of Scientology, never have been a real leader of Scientology as proven numerous times in many cases as here relayed by Tom. You are a policy and group destroyer, usurping Power which doesn’t belong to ya!

    • Go Tom M!!!

  22. The cause could be a combination of the article’s effect on DM’s camp and on the haters camp and/or any of the haters/OSA ops that have been recently banned from this blog.

  23. Ahh, yes, welcome fellow listeners for another saga of “As The Worm Turns”. This episode finds our hero once again in the throws of Little Davies web of ineffectual orders. Stay tuned, folks…

    HCOB Signs of Success springs to mind. I wish I had it to hand to quote it, but I am sure you know the one I mean. Congratulations on your Success, Marty. There are strong signs of it everywhere.

    • ΘTater/GaryLerner

      I believe that this is the HCOPL “Signs of Success” you were refering to:
      —————————————————–

      HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
      WASHINGTON, DC

      HCO BULLETIN OF 1 MAY 1958

      Remimeo
      SIGNS OF SUCCESS

      Whenever we’re really winning the squirrels start to scream. You can tell if somebody is a squirrel. They howl or make trouble only when we’re winning.

      Spectacular success can quadruple the number of complaints. Tell the complainees: “Come in, get clear.” Otherwise skip it.

      To understand a squirrel, consider the reaction of somebody who could not run the fifth leg of help “How could another person help another person”. The thought of this drives some people spinny. That’s a squirrel. They can’t view other people helping others without going berserk.

      There’s nothing personal in having squirrels. Even heroes can have lice.

        Damn, Gary. I must be spuding incendiary thoughts. I did not know about this when I made some similar, although possibly less tractable, comments in the following post.

        Is it BYODT (bring your own damn torch), by the way? I figure you’re ok with spotting me a bic moment.

        Bruce Pratt

        • ΘTater/GaryLerner

          Any torch will do, Bruce! As a villager that’s storming the DerMonster’s castle, I have rounded up quite a few torches and complementary Bics to ignite them. The Bics all have various logos and statements on them such as “Flick your BIC do DM” and “Flick YOU, Davey!” and “Can I light your tiny cigar, Davey?”, etc… 🙂

            Thanks, village spud and luminary.

            Put me down for a Bic Me. If it’s already taken, I could settle for Once Bic’d, Never Again.

  25. The spam attack proves that you are hitting too close to the TRUTH.
    Well Done, and Carry on!

  26. Went ext to see the Dear Leaders reaction.
    He was screaming “I’m getting wrinkles” “I’m getting wrinkles”.
    He then received his Botox injections and relaxed.
    Talked to TC about 2 hours and drank a bottle of whiskey.

    • ΘTater/GaryLerner

      and changed his golden thong!

      • While holding his rod.

        • As the GoodBook says, “Thy Rod and Thy Staff shall Comfort Thee.” I wonder if that is actually how he “processes” the “entheta SP vibes” he thinks he has absorbed – clutching his grounding “rod” in one hand, furiously jerking his “staff” with the other…..

          Oh God, now I need a lobotomy to get the image out of my brain….!

  27. Kathy Braceland

    Awesome Marty. I see you got some heavy hits with that soul searching you did. You sure hit a nerve! I think you effectively showed the major outpoint with this policy letter, which is WRONG SOURCE. As we all know, Miscaviage is not source and is certainly not a power source. An SP has no power of his own, only what is granted him. It’s funny that he would push this policy in regards to himself. It’s so ridiculous it makes me laugh!

    Reading your post made me ponder about the out tech in the orgs. I wondered how many tech guys and gals (both public and staff) actually used, or still use Miscavige’s re-definition of what an F/N was — the 3 swings. I also wondered how many Solo NOTS auditors followed Miscavige’s own confidential issue (that you had to have ethics clearance to read) which directly contradicts material in at least 2 of LRH’s NOTS HCOB’s. Of course these things and anything written by Miscavige as regards to Scientology are wrong source.

    Something I really like about your blog is how you continue to direct attention to the actual power and actual source. I thank you for that. LRH tech works. Miscavige’s acme Brand X doesn’t.

  28. Wow Marty, really nice shot. An expose’ on what DM has been up to related to policy, i.e Responsibility of Leaders, as a control mechanism.

    An obvious bulls eye. Seems like a good time to press.

    Maybe we”l see more S.O. blows due to as-ising of this control mechanism.

    LOL- the fur is flying.

    Nice work.

  29. Marty~Maybe you’ve seen this. GossipCop.com talking about In Touch magazine:
    http://www.gossipcop.com/tom-cruise-tell-all-book-secrets-katie-holmes-suri/
    “This week, the mag goes big, claiming that an anonymous former Scientologist is shopping a tell-all book (still “not complete”) that supposedly includes “many chapters” on their marriage.”

  30. A spam attack. Gosh. How unoriginal. On alt.religion.scientology they tried that with thousands of them a day back in 1998.
    One of the Church’s big failings is that they come up with these brilliant attack schemes and never think that someone else, maybe, just possibly, might have tried this before, and that targets might have systems already in place to deal with them. Hey, let’s try and cheat on Google to get more traffic! Let’s complain about a TV show! Let’s get our members to do mass writeins to newspapers! Let’s make anonymous hoax calls to the police!
