    OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    The Battle Between Scientology and the Internet


    Simple viral operation. Print up and eave these invitations in Maxim magazines all around your city. In bookstores, on newsstands, in 7-11's... Everywhere! The article on Anonymous is in the August Edition, on page 109. You can see the cover above.

    Here's a large single sheet page and a large quad-sheet page. What do we think? I left the design generic enough so that you could place it in any book/magazine (Dianetics, anyone?) and it's still relevant.

    why focus on just maxim when you could be putting cards into every magazine?

    but I think with some work it could work... (but definitely put more in all magazines)

    heck, screw magazines and put them in the bestseller books

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Yep, I said that. But to answer your question, if you opened the article and read it then got a hand-placed invitation... I know I'd feel a little excited to know that someone specifically put it there with me in mind. It'd make the article all that more real and tangible to me.

    Either way, GET OUT THERE AND DO IT!

    Can't read half of it. /r/ better .jpg with moar space between letters.

    A protest date would be a pretty good idea as well.

    its quite difficult to read. does it look any better in print?

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Not only Maxim, but any newspaper that has coverage on any of the protests. Magazines, local papers, national papers, whateverthefuck. If it mentions Anon, drop these inside so people know that the protests are everywhere, and have a direct invitation with links to get involved.

    Also, I said this in the Maxim thread, consider hand-writing your local protest information on the back as well as your delocalized planning board. This makes the message really personal and will likely increase the turnout at your next protest, as it doesn't even require people to go online in order to attend.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    I'm sure Maxim readers would be interested in coming to a protest or two. I am sure the reader of Today's Bride is not so interested. The fact that it's in the same magazine as an article about Anonymous would make the reader feel like he's been tapped to be a spy or some other equally cool though.
  9. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    It looks just fine in print. I just stuffed 25+ of these lovelies into my local bookstore's wall o' Maxims.

    Want a personal touch? Write in your local cell's website in the space after whyweprotest.net

    ATTENTION PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO PRINT THE THUMBNAILS:

    Use the addresses listed below the pictures to get the HIGH RES copies of these. I left dates, locations, times off of these so they are universal for any time/day/place in the world. If you want to add additional hand written info, write it on the back of the flyer yourself. These are multi-use, all time generic invites for any book/magazine/publication/newspaper.

    So USE THEM! And take pictures doing it!

    Exactly. This. That's why we need to bust our asses into gear doing this, now.

    Mini-mission complete.
    I just returned from a 7-11 and AM/PM run. The AM/PM didn't have a mag rack, but I dropped about 25 in 7-11 alone, putting the flyers in not only every issue of Maxim, but also the Esquire with Stephen Colbert on the cover, High Times and the one copy of Psychology Today. Heehee.

    I have about 275 more printed out that are going to be making a visit to Borders very soon.
    I'm going to also throw a couple in any copy of Dianetics I may find while moving them to their correct place on the shelves ('Sci-Fi').
    It's ALMOST a shame that all my favorite bookstores have zero copies of any LRH books and outright refuse them or throw them out if they get sent in. Almost.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    These ladies are fucking heroes. Rock ON. Any response from anyone while you were flyering the Maxim's? Did you place them on Page 109?

    Excellent.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    i moved a book on "what is scientology?" to the cults section of the library. and then moved dianetics to the psychology section.

    the "what is scientology?" book was pretty much a description of every hotel/org/business/celebrities that are to do with scientology. so much in fact that every 3rd page was a full size picture of one of these things.

    will be printing these out and putting them in these books, and anything else relevant.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Would you recommend putting gloves on when stuffing these? The store I plan on going to is over 10 miles from any local Co$.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Unnecessary, and looks much more suspicious than needed.
  17. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    >9000 people handle those magazines, you should be more worried about catching the aids from them than fingerprinting.
  18. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Both Barnes & Noble and Borders have a feature on their website where you can check which books are in stock in which stores...Dianetics, Clear Body Clear Mind, Self-Analysis, etc...

    Then you don't have to drag your lazy ass all the way to the store, just to be disappointed. They also seem to have them in the "MetaPhysical" section, whatever the fuck that means. Hubbard's other books are categorized as Sci-Fi, interestingly.
  19. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    This is a fantastic idea! I will do this.
  20. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    This is relevant to my interests.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    i've been putting fliers and cards in magazines and books for a long time now.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Done and done...

    Food Lion, Safeway & 7-11 Magazine rack just got pwned. I still have 30 of these left...guess I'm going back tomorrow.
  26. AnonymousTV Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Put my money where my graphic design skills are and dropped off invites at the local bookstores, library and convenience stores. 30 invites awayyyy!
  27. Infernanon Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Will be printing some of these out tomorrow and putting them in as many magazines and books I feel relevant.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    I want to do this, but what method do you guys use to put those fuckers in there?

    I mean, without the guy at the cash kicking you out of the store.
  29. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    my .02 = Act like you're looking through the magazines, and if the clerk gives you shit, show him one of the fliers and explain the cause.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    40 Lazors Shooped and Wooped... I put them on Page 109 of all the Maxims in a porn shop, a chevron, a Quik-Trip, a Super Wal-Mart, and 2 Krogers. Moar will be [strike]swallowed[/strike] fired tomorrow.
  32. AnonymousTV Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    I keep the stack of invites in my pocket. Take a magazine off the rack, flip through it to page 109, reach into pocket, put flyer in, close magazine. Grab the next one.

    I try to be a discreet as possible, as to avoid any questions.
  33. LolitaTrap Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    24 hr places like supermarkets and wal-marts are great because the only people there at night are stocking shelves. They won't notice, and if they do they probably won't give a shit.
  34. Anonymeep Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    I love this idea because it's so mysterious for the readers - especially if the flyers look a little homegrown. Don't make them look too professional (cutting with scissors is great for that "somebody made this at their kitchen table" look) or it will start to look like an advert campaign and people will tune it out. Writing something extra on them with ballpen is a great way to add to the guerilla feeling.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Bump.

    Done and Done :)
  36. AnonymousTV Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Definitely this. I suggest you all write the web address to your local Anonymous website on the back.
  37. Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Good call.
  38. Anonomaton Member

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    Hell, write the street address and time of your city's August protest. Something like "#### X Street at 11am, (Your City). Join us." It gets rid of a few middle steps and appeals to peoples' innate laziness. For some people, checking out a website and finding where and when to show up is just too much work, and everybody likes having work done for them.

    Re: OPERATION: SOFTCORE VIRAL - Invite through MAXIM!

    First, sorry for doublepost.

    Second, an idea for a new, catchier name for the op: Operation MAXIMum Exposure.
