Update from Mr. Scary Productions:
The announcement of our planned event seemes to have enturbulated some clams. They have made some rather suspicious claims about M and even quoted out of context from a St. Petersburg Times letter to the editor of a few years ago...
But it hasn't stopped there! One of them obedient clams named Robert Alan C****, accompanied by another clam with a British accent, tried to find M on Sunday at a couple of locations in Tampa, asking for him by name. You will note that, unlike the Scientologists, we do not post personal information about someone in a public forum.
This benefit event WILL happen, and M WILL go forward with the charges against Dennis Heath Clark (the correct spelling of his name, according to public records). Further harrassment of M on the part of Scientologists will only strengthen his resolve to pursue this matter.
In regards to Maggie Council, she has said she would like to do this event, but has a conflicting booking on the same date at an out-of-state venue. She isn't 100% sure that the out-of-state gig is a go yet, so she may still be able to make it. Or at the least, we could let her phone in her appearance...
Any artists or speakers who would like to appear at this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanx to all.

Mr. Scary sez:
The harrassment approach has been anticipated, and no act is signing on without being fully informed (if they are not already). A few acts that have been asked have regrettably declined due to what can only be described as fear or the potential of being targeted, which was also anticipated. Others want to appear but have conflicting schedules. We will not be forcing anyone to do this event...after all, they aren't getting paid, so they better want to do it...
The other side of this is the exposure that this event is sure to attract. Our advice to the cult is to ignore this event and let it go on peacefully, and even though it would add to the promotional exposure to have them picketing or calling bands or otherwise trying to thwart the event, we honestly would like to see this just be a peaceful gathering of musicians and people who wish to speak their minds, attended by those who might appreciate such an event. What it might become is anyone's guess.
Mucho thanx to ARS Week in Review for posting the original announcement of this event. For those coming into the thread late, here it is again: A benefit concert for the Lisa McPherson Trust ( http://www.lisatrust.net ) is scheduled for Saturday, November 11, 2000 in Clearwater, Florida, at a venue to be annouced at a later date.
To date, about a half-dozen bands have confirmed that they will be performing at this event, and we are approaching others from the Tampa Bay area, and are in touch with acts from outside of the area as well. Tentatively, this event will also feature a video presentation by Mark Bunker (if he has to be introduced to you, then you have not been reading ARS enough) and an appearance by cult expert Jeff Jacobsen. A live highspeed webcast is also planned, for those who cannot travel to Clearwater but want to join us in this unique event.
Any person or band that would like to appear at this event, please email MrScary@tampamail.com This is not restricted to Tampa Bay bands, anyone who can make it to the area is encouraged to attend or appear.
There will be little to no limitation on the number of bands or speakers, except for hours in the day. This can be an all-day and night event, or it may run from late afternoon on...We will be sure to keep the group posted as this event comes together. Thanx to all for the good words and the positive response to this event! Hope to see y'all there!
P.S. : To the genius who "outed" M and his connection to Mr. Scary...
What exactly is supposed to be the problem here? So M let's Mr. Scary use his computer to post to this newsgroup...
Like the COS never uses names or words other than Scientology to further its agenda... Like "Narconon", "Citizens Commission on Human Rights," "Free stress test," etc, etc...
Like Mandible is your real name...
