This thread has had its share of trolls and supporters of the group posting here for the purpose of subverting the thread.
People posting here are rightfully wary of anyone that seems sympathetic to the group.
I am not exactly what one would describe as in any way an SMC sympathiser - but I have to speak out here rrmoderator. I get the sense that your moderation is acting in a manner to effectively censor anyone from SMC or sympathetic to SMC on this forum.
I dont know exactly why you blocked some recent pro-SMC person who appeared here but if you really want
to promote open and free speech then please simply try to moderate with a light hand here.
Otherwise your forum is no better than the cults your organisation claims to expose. Is no dissent allowed on here ? I mean lets be honest here - many of us posters here - me included have not exactly held back in our invective and rhetoric concerning SMC. Yet I dont recall myself or others here ever being censored, being brought to task for that.
And yet as soon as any one bravely, brazenly or whatever - decides to comment from a pro-SMC perspective it doesnt seem to take long before you rrmoderator step in.
What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.
Do you not think the regular posters here are capable of speaking for themselves and responding to whatever an SMC person posts here ? Is debate to be allowed ? or is this simply to be a talking shop for the choir - who'se side I may be on ?
frankly nothing will be achieved positively if so.
Let me give you an example of what I mean. A certain pastor here- Diana Rutherford - has been the object of
a considerable amount of highly tinged emotional language here. Many posters here hold her personally responsible.
Now right or wrong - everything that has been written here concerning her could very reasonably be viewed as personal and in effect - an attack on her. And this is all allowed by rrmoderator. And yet as soon as anyone from within SMC posts briefly in response what is the response ? censorship.
didnt take long.
A word of advice rrmoderator:
Just stay out of the way.
Let all who want to defend SMC post here freely and let the ex SMC-ers here respond as they see fit.
The phrase glass houses comes to mind.
The cry has gone out time and time again here to SMC leaders etc to respond.
Yet it seems to me as soon as anyone pro-SMC raises their head above the parapet to give THEIR take on the situation - they are quickly "sent on their way"? blocked ?
