Re: Urgent to Veritas: Marie
In this messageThe Librarian's response to a forged message that had been posted to a.r.s. in her name The Librarian posts her public PGP key, and PGP-signs her message. PGP is "Pretty Good Privacy," an encryption utility that can be used to identify the originator of a message and prevent forgeries. The reason she is using it is that there have been, around this time, a rash of forgeries of The Librarian, as is explained in her message. They were painfully obvious as forgeries, often cutting and pasting from her earlier posts and mixing it in with a lot of awful writing and nonsense. Some people believed that the forgeries came from the Scientology organization known as "Office of Special Affairs" (OSA), but The Librarian was convinced that even if it went through OSA, it was ordered by attorneys running the corporation called "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST) because of all the exposure she had given them. Who knows, since the forgeries were through anonymous remailers. But she had had enough, and put an end to it with PGP. LIBRARIAN TRIVIA: This is the first post by The Librarian that is PGP-signed. The "Veritas: Marie" reference is to an editor of the "Veritas" web site. They cover a lot of information about CST as wella lot of it appearing to have been taken from earlier posts by The Librarian. The editor, Marie, had also been the victim of forgeries. This forgery that The Librarian is responding to is addressed to "Veritas: Marie." Stephen Mitchell, Lisa Precious Mitchell, and Kathleen Carey (all mentioned in the quoted forgery below) were all plaintiffs at the time in a libel suit against CSTwhich lends further credence to The Librarian's opinion about the real source of the forgeries. The lawsuit was being covered by the Veritas web site. And Randy McDonald was an ex-Scientologist that had written a series of reports on David Miscavige and others which had been memorialized on the net by Andreas Heldal-Lund as "The McDonald Papers." Final trivia: this is the last post by The Librarian for 1998.

Well, boys and girls, just when you wouldn't think that the deformed
and demented little limp lawyers at CST could devolve any further,
they resort to intellectual rape in message
That message, reproduced below, is a forgery. It's the third forgery
in my name that has been posted in the last week or so. I'll leave it
to your fertile and busy little imaginations to figure out who *this*
one came from:
>To: Marie et al
>I have *cancelled* Library privileges for Stephen Mitchell,
>Randy McDonald, Lisa Precious Mitchell and Carey as well
>as anyone in the employ of or connected to Veritas.
>And that's *indefinitely*.
>They all seem to be constitutionally incapable of distinguishing
>a HARD FACT from LIMP NOODLES! (And what use does

The fact that the best they could do is cut-and-paste from some of my
earlier posts (*which*, by the way, did more to expose their little
Shermy-wormy rackets than they *ever* thought would happen) says all
that needs to be said about the poor, pitiful little things.
(You don't think that they were like, *stung* by some of the things I
posted earlier, do you?)
Gosh, maybe they thought that by taking a free ride on my *really*
short skirts, it would somehow make all that stuff I posted go away,
or something. (Or maybe it's just as close as they ever get.)
Just for your scorecards, the other two forgeries in my name were:
Anywa-a-a-ays, we all know the sure cure for these kinds of copy-cat
intestinal-worm-like losers, don't we? Here's my PGP key, only for you
ARSCC Chimerical Library regulars:

Sort of like an on-line chastity belt, ain't it?
And to Stephen Mitchell, Randy McDonald, Lisa Precious Mitchell,
Kathleen Carey, plus Marie and any and everybody connected with the
Veritas web site: since these parasites derided you in *my* name, that
alone makes you okay in my books. (And I got *lots* of books!) So, if
you're out there reading this, I hereby grant each of you a lifetime
membership in the ARSCC Chimerical Library! You can come up and see me
Okey-dokey; I am now *late* for a hair appointment. And then I have
some *new* surprises for all of you, coming soon!
Till then, remember: if it isn't PGP signed with my key, it isn't from
your one-and-only, lonely, lovely ARSCC Librarian. Kisses!
