What about a phone survey? I want to know to what degree the public is inoculated against the cult. Additionally, carefully worded phone surveys can actually influence public opinion. If people are interested, I would love to work with some of you to design a phone survey and a sampling method, and then to do a statistical analysis of the data. Questions could include things like 'Which of the following describes your attitude towards the celebrity religion Scientology' (I'd use the word 'cult' in one of the responses, not in the question, for scientific validity), and 'Are you aware of the internet group 'Anonymous' and their campaign to end Scientology's tax exempt status?', and 'which of the following would most affect your opinion of scientology: abuses against members, efforts to infiltrate the government, efforts to recruit children, exorbitant course fees, slave labor, successes by individuals who have taken scientology courses, volunteer work conducted by scientologists in disaster zones' (and so forth) I would want the data divided by city, with a standard sampling method out of local phone books. We'd need to look into the legality of these cold calls to avoid violating any no-call lists and so on. I'd have to work out how many calls to make within each population to get statistically significant results. One additional benefit is that, if we do this strictly by the book (scientifically speaking), the results might even be publishable in a journal - and, once published, would likely get some press. Of all the methods major corporations use for market research, this is one that's generally expensive, but could be done quite efficiently and cheaply by anonymous. What do you guys think? edit - this would be 90% vanity; some of us faggots have taken courses on this shit and done lame-ass survey research in college, and actually get our jollies off imagining doing this sort of thing on a national level. There is some potential for win here - reaching people fliers wouldn't have gotten to, maybe earning a couple small articles in a few newspapers, but for the most part participating in this would just be for some of us to get experience designing a survey reseach project from the ground up, and in seeing just how unpopular the cult is in America.
