GUEST,josepp BS: History of Scientology-by josepp (78* d) RE: BS: History of Scientology 14 Jul 12


Jack, I don't care who likes my writing and who doesn't and why should I? Does every single person love your music? Do they stop in their tracks to watch every note you perform? Do you care if they do or not? Could you possibly make a music that everybody in the world loves? I'll go out on a limb and say no.

Don, I DO belong to a writer's group--several--and I actually write for a living, it's my job. If mudcat doesn't like me to post these things, mudcat is free to delete it. I'll understand and I don't mind. But if mudcat was all that concerned that I stick to the theme of folk music, they'd just get rid of the BS section altogether. That's what the BS section is for--non-music-related subjects.

The fact that this set of posts makes so many people mad as hell is beyond me unless they are scientologists but they haven't bothered to correct me on that count if that is the case. The rest, as Jeri pointed out, have the option of simply closing the thread and going onto something else. I don't remember the last time I went on a thread I had no interest in and attacked the OP for posting it, even going so far as to post a half-dozen more times to express my displeasure. Just close the thread and move on. If they want sources, why should I post them when they've admitted they had no interest in the subject? If they are really interested, let them do their own research and see if they come across the same facts that I did. But they won't because, by their own admission, they don't care.

But thank you for your thoughtful post. Obviously, you took the time to actually suggest something constructive. But it doesn't really bother me much if people don't want to be constructive. Frankly, you should post some of your non-music-related writings here. I'll read them if no one else will.

Bobert! Would it be fair for me to summarize Scientology in three paragraphs for your convenience? For all its faults, it's certainly more interesting that a three-paragraph summary. You don't have to read every word--just skim through it. You might find an interesting tidbit or two to ponder. Wouldn't kill you, would it?
