Will Smith Opens Scientology School | Chanology News

“New Village Academy will lead the world in identifying innovative learning styles, educational best practices and the ingredients for enduring prosperity.” This quote is from the Vision Statement of the new school being funded and founded by Will Smith. Some of the “innovative learning styles” are Montessori, the Constructivist Model, and L. Ron Hubbard Study Tech, among others.

I guess we can add Will Smith to the not-so-secret Scientologist and no cash from Kevin list.

When Scientology stops taking cash for it’s “secrets” I’ll stop hating it. I’ve worked with Scientologists and seen behind the curtain there. There is no “There” There. Just paranoia and self-sustaining self-delusion.

Poor Will, his career was doing well, why did he feel the need to drink the Kool-aid?

Didn’t he see this?

Web Stats Since Hack

Web Stats Since Hack, originally uploaded by NiteMayr.

With the redirect I have in place, these should be the last stats I see from this hack, but on Thursday someone used my uploads system to create a phishing website and by Sunday their phishing email was out there.

I’ve redirected the phished URLs to an anti-phishing advice site but I’m fairly freaked out by the sheer number of folks who have been taken in by this.

Over 500 people have clicked through, 450+ since I removed the hacked content.

This sucks for them, it really does.
