    How far we have come.

    In March 2008 I started collecting links to pages that are critical of Scientology that expose their crimes and abuses. At the time there were a handful of notable sites critical of the company, but very little in the media. Most people had never heard of Scientology, and of the people who had few knew much more than Scientology's own propaganda.

    The StumbleUpon collection now has over 9000 links to websites critical of the Scientology corporation, including news reports, videos, blogs, forums, and personal stories and biographies of ex-members and critics.

    Congratulations to you Anonymous for helping to open the floodgates, making it safer for ex-members to come forward with their stories and for publications to print the facts.

    Despite OSA's exertions to control information on the internet, it's safe to say that their fail has been epic.
    If OSA could succeed at removing one link per day it would take them over 24 years to succeed, by which time there will likely be tens of thousands more for them to deal with, assuming that is that there will even be an OSA at that time.

    But now is no time to get complacent. Critics are keeping up the pressure to finish the fight.

    Congratulations!

    And what a coincidence! Today, August 8th, 2014 is World Cat Day!

    I searched for spoken out and got the result of the old list from the dead wiki on this site, at http://www.stumbleupon.com/to/s/2rDxc1?m=C_PF=49d0282d664c88012a2ef9a9ffd2080d&meta=5213039&_nospa=true
    but not the current list at http://whyweprotest.wikia.com/wiki/Former_Church_of_Scientology_members_who_have_spoken_out

    I could just suck at searching..

    Edit: Other sites I didn't find in the "likes" that I visit almost weekly because they keep up to date are:

    OK, here you go http://www.stumbleupon.com/stumbler/anon8109

    It's now 10^4 - 1 links.

    I'm leaving "10, 000 get" open to suggestions from you




    Approximately 3-4 pages have been added every day for over 8 years.

    By recent estimates that's one StumbleUpon page criticizing the Scientology corporation for every active customer they now have.

    This list is by no means complete as there are probably 5 or 10 times as many pages online criticizing the cult than gathered on StumbleUpon, and that's not counting any of the pages here on WWP of which there are tens of thousands. I avoided linking to variations of the same news story published by different newspapers, only doing so occasionally for stories that went viral. I also avoided linking to multiple pages on the same critical site, linking to news stories from before 2005 with the exception of major ones such as TIME's article from 1991 or Pulitzer prize winning articles, or linking to every story published by Tony Ortega which numbers in the thousands. I also avoided linking to the tens of thousands of videos on youtube criticizing the cult, though I did collect a few thousand of the better quality vids in a separate list here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCreOHc9LXa5WAArw1grzeJQ

    Though other users, including cult sock accounts, have added them to StumbleUpon, you won't find any propaganda news releases paid for by the scientology corporation, or puff pieces published by gullible editors, or the cult's own web pages or those of its front groups, or pages put up by cult sympathizers in academia in my list. It's only for criticism and I make no claim of being balanced.

    I noticed some links in the sidebar of the Reddit [live] Ron Miscavige interview roundup of reactions at https://www.reddit.com/live/wu9oget234c0/ if you think any of them are unique enough :)
