I'll take that as a yes.

why? are you jumping to conclusions, or do you have proof? i'd really love to see proof of this. it would be a side of scott i've never seen before.

>I've noticed that you constantly attack the people you disagree with >with claims of "you haven't read this or that".

I've noticed you accuse people of what you are culpable of yourself.

can you give some examples? i have seen scott quote sources, but i haven't seen anything along the lines of argument soley based on whether or not you have read book X. what i've seen from some of the scientologists is along the lines of "if you had read this book by Hubbard you would know better." what i've seen from scott is along the lines of "i believe this ... so-and-so backs this up in <book>: <quote>"

i would love to see some examples otherwise. tell you what. just mail me the message id. i can just pull the articles off tape.

Hooray for you. Why don't you type the old edition and the new edition in and use diff on them. I am tired of hearing your unsubstantiated claims as well.

umm... that doesn't answer the challenge. or should we assume that you can't provide sources? for the most part scott has backed up any claims he's made with sources (i.e. actual quotes).
