SPTimes Flashback - Lessons Learned from the past EDIT: This is attempt #2 - rewritten OP post-cock-sucking This thread is/was meant to b food4thought in terms of anons splendid ability to change / evolve / adapt as needed. After careful reflection, I think the cults responses in the SPtimes chapter 1 material confirms that scilons have definitely begun to change tactics. Here's what led to my conclusion: Tommy Davis singing a different tune over Jett Travolta and the church's stance on autism. This showed us they realized they needed to change tactics. The new ad campaigns emphasize a drastically different message. Its no longer about selling self help and dianetics being the only workable self help solution. New message is more about enlightentment & philosphical or spiritual answers. And to be promoted by Bob Adams (from executive ranks) instead of the usual PR lackeys (from administrative ranks). This showed us new battle plans include new material AND new form of spin doctoring. All these months they bawwwled religous persecution. Yet now their publicly releasing the confessionals to the SPTimes in terms of proving the defectors were lying. This shows them willing to sabotage their own religious practices to protect their Ecclestial leader. Imo Some key aspect of how their attempting to handle their public image probs is definitely changed, and i dont know what that change is yet. And the irony is, as someone who has lurked on the critics movement from the earliest day of web 0.9, seems to me i seen a similar changing up of tactics right after the first SPTimes expose was released years ago. It seemed then, that the new tactics amounted to sinking to new levels of being scum of the earth and new levels of ruthlessness started to unfold after that first SPTimes eye opening special report. And it crept into the online community slowly, like a cock roach infestation. By the time it was widely known just how many cock roaches there really was, the damage was done - the online community was significantly weaker and those weakness got exploited even more. My original OP got caught up in the irony of the tables turning back then, and possibly being on the brink of turning once more now if we arent prepared for the game to change. Back then, OG didnt seem to realize the change in tactics was happening till they were already done-in by the new maneuvering, atleast from the perspective of someone on the outside looking in. I'm only trying to prevent that same "unaware of change" leverage being used to the scilon's advantage now. So i first tried to express a heads-up in terms of a history lesson, and my intention was new tactics / new game snuck up on people once before without them realizing it at first, so it could happen again if we are not specifically looking for changes. We got undeniable signs of change staring us in the face, so while the fap-able material is endless right at this very moment, lets not fail to recognize the new playing field thats gonna come along for the ride in conjunction with those tactics and try to figure it out before it catches us unaware. That history lesson was fail in terms trying to get my point across a generation gap in a whole different modern internet world, but its quoted below for making sense of the early parts of this thread. So if your hardcore oldschool anon, consider the quoted part below tl;dr of toxic proportions. bottom line - anon's ability to change likely needs amped up in the days ahead. Shits getting deep, and i believe its whole new game now and the cult is sneaking out their own forms of troll cannons to overpower our troll cannons. Keep in mind, the cult has had 16 months to study us and compile their datum on how we operate into a form they can make sense of, work with, and plan better strategies accordingly. So when they change up in one way, we need to change up in several ways just to keep the balance in our favor or else they'll dial in on our weaknesses and catch us unaware. Now is time to be expecting those changes, we need to anticipate the offense before it overpowers our usual defense. Perhaps we can learn from the past to spot the new tactics, perhaps not. Either way, the SPTimes expose has definitely up the anti by significant proportions. Question is - what else is different and still up their sleeve?
