    I'm going to start helping Lori Hodgson get reconnected with her children. If anybody wants to help, let's start a conversation. I don't want your money, only your talent in social networking, web sites, things like that. I think she's done a very good job of publicity, but with more people it could really take off.

    Here's a quick intro.

    In particular, would anybody be interested in helping with a Wordpress or other similar blog? I can make one, but my design skills are limited. Slap a photo at the top and I'm done. I know it can be better than that.

    "Reconnect Lori"
    "Mama Bear Needs Her Cubs Back"
    "Mom Can't Wait 1,000,000,000 Years"

    Just a few spur-of-the-moment ideas. Use if helpful.

    My photoshop skills are fail, but this is what I have so far.

    If anybody has a twitter account, it would be nice to follow Lori. I plan to do a lot of re-tweeting. If you would like to help out, make a new account and maybe set your location to Austin, TX.

    Sorry, hard to keep up with all of the exes and where their disconnected family members are. Where are her kids?
  7. Rod Keller Member

    Austin, TX. Eventually I would like #jessicacallmom and #jeremycallmom to "trend" in Austin. But little steps first, you know?

    If you like, here is the shortened URL to her sparse web site. The idea is to make it a landing place for twitter links and other links. It's not a news site you would come back to over and over. The letter to kids is a sticky post, and Lori might add articles once in a while.

    So protesting outside the Austin org with a sign telling the children that their mother misses them would not be out of line? Wonder if the kids are ever on Craigslist?
  10. Rod Keller Member

    Well, you have anticipated part of the plan. I think "Missed Connections" in Austin, TX would be worth watching. You can decide for yourself if you think one of the available flags is appropriate. Flags are not just for spam, in other words.
  11. Rod Keller Member

    I don't think either of her children are on staff. But I think a protest would be fine and very welcome.

    Not sure who is in that area, but I'll take a look around to see if I can find anyone.

    I'll go with either thread - which would people prefer?

    Sometimes new information or new ops get lost in old threads. I say leave it here.

    I try keep everything in an existing thread so that people who are new to a topic have as much information as possible in one place.

    Any teenager under the age of majority, 18 in the U.S. and Canada, cannot legally contract, thus any such agreement is null and void.

    Well, of course you're correct. I don't think Jeremy Leake is convinced that he doesn't have to pay them $3 million to talk to his mom.

    Every time I think about families split apart by Scientology, I think of this song. Seems like it could make for a good theme video.

    I have ideas but lack skill.

    one of my next rounds of tweets i'll reference lori & her twitter handle in regards to the forced disconnection from her kids....

    I like the idea. I think Lori is a good test case, since the "kids" are adults, and this is purely about disconnection, not custody. Also, they are not SO or staff. Disconnection includes friends as well as families. I think it would be best to start with families.

    What would happen if every time we flag a scilon add, we put up a "reconnection" add? The lulz is making me tingle...
  27. Rod Keller Member

    I think we should stick to the CL spam rules. I'm posting one ad per child every 48 hours.

    Also check google, citysearch, yelp, yellow pages, foursquare, I forget the rest of them. Search "austin scientology"

    I'm not sure that this is something people can do effectively while anonymous. I mean, they can be posted anonymously, but the person seeking reconnection and the disconnected Scientologist should have names. I think.

    Perhaps this is something requiring more thought? Maybe a think tank thread? IF the people willing to work on it have the time. I know some projects eat time, like the UBI and the craig's list ones. But i think this might be something worth doing, especially now that there is lots of bad publicity for CO$

    Awesome idea! The cult has Cindy Plahuta and Mishell Littles children also. The UK needs something like this also.:)
  33. JohnnyRUClear Member

    The word is "ad", not "add". It's short for "advertisement".

    FTR, I like the idea, but I don't use CL enough to have a strong opinion.

    Sorry, i think that was a little subconscious self diagnosis...
