Just popping in for 5. University takes up way too much of my time right now but just had to reply to TonusOH.
Evans: "...if you insist on having a problem with the concept of someone being a professional anti-cult activist and not doing the work I do for free, I feel you ought to explain why you don't also have a problem with others who make a living from bad situations."
I already said to him last year - which got me blocked off his twitter account that there is no such thing as a "professional activist" - you don't go to university/college to learn about activism. Activism is something you feel strongly about and want to make changes about the way something is done. But I do know what he is good at. He's good at manipulation - taught by the cult. However, some of us have a conscience and he clearly ain't got no Jiminy Cricket sitting on his shoulder saying - dude, this is wrong! If he can be dishonest to his wife and kids, he can be dishonest to anyone.
Story time. I once knew someone who was married to my cousin. He cheated on her. They broke up. A few years later I helped him out of a jam, helping him get a computer on HP. I continued my payments because of course I don't want my credit rating to be tampered with. A few times this "friend" missed payments. But let it go because he was in serious financial burden. But I kept an account sheet and he promised to pay. He still owes me £466 after 5 years. Lesson learned. If they can be dishonest to the wife, they can be dishonest to you as well in any circumstance.
