Everything I have was culled from public-domain sources; anybody with knowledge of databases and some basic research skills could have found all of that data.
I see nothing wrong about delving into DM's background and developing a comprehensive, factual biography of him.
I have made at least eighty cult-ed and religious-studies scholars in my country aware of the JCs, have given my basic JC dossier to all of them, I have distributed all of my research on the JCs across international borders, hundreds of pages of it, I have given this information to Hassan, to RR, aplologetics groups, cult-awareness organizations, to universities, to law enforcement, to journalists, academics, media, medical personnel, concerned relatives, the Jonestown Research Project, you name it.
Further, I have given this information (and more) to people from the BBC, ITV, the Wall Street Journal, the Dallas Morning News, people in France, Canada, England, Australia, India...I mean, it's literally all over the world now.
I have done a great deal to raise general awareness of the danger the JCs represent to the community as a whole, more than anybody else in North America, or maybe even this hemisphere in fact.
In a way, I wish I'd never even heard of the JCs. None of this has directly personally benefited me at all.
Me, I am simply a guy who went "on point" and put myself into the breach for others who were not empowered to speak for themselves. I was the one who agreed to go about all of this non-anonymously. There were and are others working behind me. I was the one who spent hours scanning and posting all of the A/V material for the Visual Archive. I went on Jeremy Kyle in order to stand up to DM and made those episodes available to the public via YouTube.
I have put myself on the line for this matter, and have profited not at all from any of it, in any sense of the word.
