'Scientologists believe that psychiatrists have always been evil, and their treachery goes back 75 million years when the psychiatrists assisted XENU in killing countless alien life forms. Thanks Google! We may be able to stop these evil Psychs once and for all!"'

Comment Re: Theo has a bad temper? (Score 1) 304

"Yes, Theo has a bad temper and is not filtering carefully enough what he says, but his heart is in the right place, and he's a fucking great leader. I don't mind one bit his bad temper, because it usually hits those that really deserve it. And on the other hand, he's one of the most effective open source leaders."

Now that it's become the norm for getting people fired for holding opposing views to yerself, how about organising a boycott of the following individuals: Chloe Valerlidi, Chris McAvoy, Christie Koehler, Jessica Klein, Jess Klein, John Bevan, Sydney Moyer (ref) or failing that having them locked in a room and made listen to Alex Jones for ever.
