Gerry Armstrong (or more
accurately the Gerroline unit) stated his
opinion as if it were a fact.
Whether he, you, or anyone
else believes that Gerry Armstrong is what
he claims he is, that is only your OPINION, not a fact. Gerry
Armstrong (or more accurately the Gerroline unit) has a nasty habit of
stating his opinions as if they were facts.

And you are very, very

Somehow I suspect you'll
change your game now that I've given you
another name. You may believe the person who squawks the loudest
wins the prize, Warrior, but I don't happen to agree.
Gerry Armstrong is most
definitely the person who whines, moans,
complains, taunts, and snivels the most loudly about his questionable
victimization. That does not mean he is the biggest victim, only that
he has the largest mouth.
In my opinion (and yes,
it is an opinion, with which you no doubt
disagree), Gerry Armstrong has done his best to continue being
targeted by the Church of Scientology by deliberately taunting them.
When the CoS reacts in its predictable way, he then squalls, squeaks,
and snivels. Gerry seems to have managed to make a living by doing
Does someone who loses
an arm in a shark attack deserve pity? Most
definitely yes. Does someone who loses an arm because he taunts
sharks by shoving his arm in sharks' mouths deserve pity?
Maybe you think so. I do
