This guy is trying to pedall Scientology DVD's on Toytown,I am not sure if that should be allowed by the Mods?

Maybe I'm overreacting, but thats how it starts with these Wackos,one ad then another and so on...what do you think?

First of all, any time some one has a problem with a post, the best thing to do is hit that little triangle that says Report.

Secondly, it doesn't look like anyone is clamoring to buy these DVD's but instead are very disparaging of them. So, not really a problem then is it?

You're right. We have enough Whackos already on Toytown and these new ones should find new shores - we're full.

Well personally, I think people can buy and sell whatever they want, as long as it's legal. I wouldn't mod a thread that was selling bibles or korans either...

 

Oh and I've moved this thread to Metachat, because that's where these sort of discussions belong.

I've edited the header to make it clear that it's scientology. Everyone can see what it refers to now and if someone still wants to buy it, then it's up to them...

its up to them? so much for being your brothers keeper. I visited their temple in St. Louis MO. and was nearly turned away due to suspicion that i was affiliated with the Anonymous protest which had been staged there earlier in the day. regardless of what I told them they felt secure that they could help me improve my quality of life. this seemed to consist of buying their books and taking their courses/giving into mental persuasion and mind control. Boo on scientology. Two thumbs down and I call bullshit on El Ron and his wacky alien spirits.

 

in the words of John Searle "as a general rule of thumb, anything that has to call itself science probably isn't"

John Searle. That name brings back memories.

The big problem here is that if you don't speak out against it,

it gives the impression that you're either a member or just naive (a bit of a Chamberlain if you like ).

As I counterpoint, I've added a link to a non-religious help unit to show the alternative.

Then it is an informed choice.

Selling on the internet is one things, it gets real bad once they start knocking on your door. I had a friend who bought one book of the internet out of academic interest and they wouldn't leave her alone for months. Always knocking on the door. At least Mormons and Jehovah witness's know when to stop, kinda. These guys are headhunters.

 

quickly editing profile, dont want to be tracked, ... da de da de dum .... mmmmm I wonder whos knocking on the door, aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

Looking at the Ad in question, I get the distinct impression that this is an Indian guy(name) who has been given some promo DVDs and is now trying to make a quick € or two.

BUT you never know for certain with these fellas? :unsure:

I'm actually almost curious enough to buy it myself - just to see what it's all about.

 

Just go torrent the darned thing. :P

Shit, I will become a Scientologist wierdo too, if I get to have sex with either Nicole Kidman or Katie Holmes, I don't mind which.

I did their free personality test one day, back in Dublin, it really pisses them off when you dont admit to having some kind of problem that they can hook onto,

The test was bullshit, plus anyone who has ever done a course in communications will, see all the techniques of Psych, NLP, Body language etc being used, they are very good at what they do, I am a very strong willed person, and I found it very hard to say no to these people, so what would a vulnerable person away from home, alone in Germany say?

if they want to advertise, then they should have to pay Toytown and take out an advertisement , and then it will be seen for what it is
