    Kinda really old news but I suppose it's still important for people to see who just joined Enturb.

    They were attacked by some Gaiafags a few days ago.
    From what I heard however, it wasn't related to the CO$ thing.

    I'm pretty sure scifags don't run neopets anymore.
    Or is it Earthlink? I know one of the two isn't run by scifags anymore.
    Unless neopets is run by ERFLINK then, you know, neither or both.

    On a side note, how about asking Howstuffworks.com to run an article on Scientology? They are constantly adding new content and are always reliable and factual. I think many people would be interested to hear what Howstuffworks has to say about Scientology.

    Particularly how auditing works (or, more precisely, doesn't).

    That sounds like a plan.

    You're right, Viacom bought it in 2005. I'd be interested to know whether they're still using Hubbard "tech" though, currently ... I wonder if $cilons stayed in management after the buy-out. The info on the links from OP seem to be from a few years back.

    On a sidenote, Doug Dohring, who was the CEO of Neopets and is also a $cilon, is the father of Jason Dohring, who played Logan on Veronica Mars. All of Los Angeles seems to be one big rabbit hole of scientology ... it makes me so very tired. And furious. :evil:

    THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS
    I guess it kinda owes to Los Angeles' culture- I remember the stereotype being that there was always a new religion springing up every day, so naturally you'd have a lot of people who would see all the new age pseudoscience and write it off as harmless.

    Tool wrote a song called "Aenema", which was basically one big rant about how much Los Angeles sucked. "Fuck L Ron Hubbard and Fuck all his clones, Fuck all these gun-toting hip gangster wannabes.... And I'm praying for tidal waves....."

    I really need to know whether neopets is still shilling the Scifag crap onto the employees, cause I have a premium account with those dudes. (Yes, I play Neopets, shuddup). If they are then I'm takin' my dollars and walkin'.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to this page http://info.neopets.com/presskit/compinfo.html, Doug Dohring is still CEO of the company. The page also mentions being a subsidiary of Viacom, so it seems to be current. Also, I found the COO and EVP shown on this page http://info.neopets.com/presskit/photos.html in the $cientology completions lists ... they're in pretty deep. Sorry, dude. As for me, I will continue my unintentional neopets boycott. :wink:

    HA. I'm a SoCalfag so I can't say I'm hoping for a tidal wave ... but it's definitely true that people here are, I dunno, more open-minded to stuff other parts of the country might tend to be a little more skeptical or suspicious about. Where I'm from (midwest) people are more leery of shiny new religions ... :lrhmoney:

    I've submitted a request for How Scientology Works, I encourage you to do the same from here:

    You're only allowed 400 characters but I think that's enough to give a basic overview.
