Well...there are people who are OK with the ends justifying the means and will support AO and AGP no matter what they do, as long as they also work against the cult. But it remains true, they alienated many people that could assist them more or work with them. And they chose this method for some odd reason. I remember when early on, AO was PMing people like me to work on a plan to go after you and Mark L because he was convinced you were both OSA or scilons or something. Being wary of people is one thing, but wanting to plan something to "out" you guys was another. It is that kind of not-well-thought-out plan that helped to make people wary of him. That and creeping out femanons.
