In Response To: Re: Earthlink Affiliation (pip)

Everybody take a deep breath.

First off, I agree with Ann that Scientology is corrupt organization. In a country that values religious freedom, however, you must be willing to watch people do stupid idiotic things in their search for enlightenment. It's a free country.

I was Olga and Christopher's intern when they started the site in 1996 and finding a sponsor wasn't easy. Why? Because of the content. Some companies loved the idea, but couldn't we tone down the language and situations a bit, make it a PG rather than an R rated site?

After quite a bit a rooting around, we finally found a patron in Earthlink. Earthlink liked the concept and didn't bat an eyelash at the content, a rare find indeed. To my knowledge, earthlink has never said word one about the growth, intellectually or physically (server real estate) of The Company Therapist.

The Werby's developed this site to foster an environment of learning and experience for writers and have been toiling at it for almost 3 years. During this time Olga and Christopher have not been paid one thin dime for their efforts. As an artist they have given my free rein over my contributions as The Anonymous Faxer, because of them I have gone places with my art that I might not have dared.

If Christopher's last response stung, it is because he cares so damn much about the people who contribute to this site. Your attack on Sharon was uncalled for and I believe that you owe her an apology.

As far as I am concerned, the Werby's are champions of free speech. Another one of those pesky rights that one has do deal with everyday.

If you choose not to deal with The Company Therapist in the future, you have that right. Like I said before, it's a free country. You have the right to state your opinion here as well, but with your right to free speech and religion, comes the responsiblilty to show respect to those who respond to your views.

Best wishes,

Karen
