thats an interesting way of looking at it. i suppose youre right
Like RG pointed out, it's not like they're gaining members and supporters left and right. They don't trust anyone, and rightfully so, they're too likely to be infiltrated. What's their end goal? To get people to listen? They don't, and likely won't.
There's such a stigma associated with them in the public, you can't live a 'normal' daily life if you choose to follow them. I.e., look what Anon does.
"Why I'll be a Devil forever [...] two words. Trust and respect." - Mr. Pat Burns
"I learned not to question Cowbell's willingness to ban." - Brian Boyle
If you read that list two things shock me. *Well one really doesn't after you think about it a while and realize how much hate is learned, not inherent.
1) How many of them are lawyers.
2) There's really only 3 families involved and two of them are by marriage.*
Not at all surprising. Apart from their "protesting", their main activity is suing people who attack them.
It honestly wouldn't surprise me if none of them really believe in the twisted version of Christianity they claim to preach, and they're just doing this as a cynical moneymaking scheme.

I am in contact with several at the moment. Unfortunately, every time they give me a bank account to send the fees to, it ends up in the hands of the authorities and gets shut down. Hmm, I wonder how that keeps happening?
the best name one of the scammers ever used for himself when contacting me was…drumroll…”Success Adams”. That’s the name he chose. Success. oh, I jerked him around for quite some time for having the audacity to call himself Success. I imagined him picking the name based solely on his reputation on scamming. like, all the ‘employee of the month’ awards had his picture right under them…when he walks around the office, ladies swoon. guys wants to be him. so, he cracked his knuckles, selected my email address, and just to be a braggart goes ‘hey guys…watch this.” and brazenly signs the email “Success”, to the whooping cheers and laughter of his mates. basically, I pictured this guy as Sack from wedding crashers.
saugus, do you really troll them?
I only ask because I do the same thing. I also create and send my own custom made ones to friends occasionally. an excerpt of one i sent last year:
Hello American Friend)
I am writes to you because I need your help. Captain Mufassa has taken President in hostage and we are requesting!!
I have an idea about how we can over-throw Mufassa and free the people of Nigeria. And here it is. First, you will send me a check for 250000 liters of dollars. Then, I will lure the Mufassa out of his vegetable garden with it. Finally, he will be so scared that he will mail you a check for 500000 liters. This works, American friend. You can spend your wealth on compact discs, musical players, or Rolling Skates. I am righting to you, only, because only you can chase Mufassa out of the Garden. This is no joke!
If your interests are such that, please reply to this email. You have to trust that I am not a part of the Mufassa Alliance, and will not rest until our President's reign is forever! Thank you brother!
