IMO, David Koresh mixed with Jimmy Swaggart. Again, IMO only.

There's similarities. In "his defense", I suppose, I don't think he stockpiled weapons. I mean I don't see that as much of a defense, Warren Jeffs and the like I don't think stockpiled weapons either.

Someone in your area must have given him a donation and I bet that was how he decided to have the flyers distributed in your area. It wouldn't surprise to find that is how he decides area he targets.

I remember this guy. He mailed pages and pages and pages of stuff to people where I used to work. Found out it was an employee who gave him the address so she could get his packages sent to her at work. The guy does his homework because he found the names of the employers there and sent the same to them.

I went into his website to see who he was and don't ya know the guy found my address just from that. I never said my name and I didn't give my address but he had to have been able to get my e-maill address, even though I didn't give that either, because he sent me a package with my e-mail name instead of my real name. I always wondered how the hell he got my mailing address without knowing my real name? The only way I could think of is the prisoners must be good at hacking into the computers of people who go into his site.

There is no privacy on the internet. The internet is very much similar to the old telephone "Party Lines" that were in use until at least the 1950s. Quick rule of thumb, on the internet if you can see it, so can somebody else.

Once you get an email address you can find a lot of information. especially if they have ever used it in a post any place or on any of the social net works. do a search for your email address on google, the results may scare you.

When many people are accusing you of doing the same thing then chances are the case is not going to fall in your favor. Anyone who would harm, violate, or have sex with a child is not someone I want in society, and when a half dozen kids say that some man did something to them I am going to side with the kids.
Cult members tend to be a tenacious bunch.

Yes, they usually think their cult leader is their best friend ever and will lie about miracles and things like that in order to defend him.

That is scary. I can see getting email address and real names of people who willingly give it out on a public forum, social network but not when it's only for the purpose of registering on that site and that, to me, and I would hope everyone else, really should stay private on that site. I don't go into facebook or myspace and when I post here I have never given my real name or my email address in any posts or threads. I did a Google and Bing search on my email address and nothing that even remotely looks like it's about me comes up. Just businesses. I typed it in different ways with the spaces, without spaces, with the www. and without, etc etc. Problem is you can't completely avoid it because you have to register your computer in your real name or you won't be able to update your security when the name and address has to match up with the payment.I feel sorry for people who didn't know the internet would come to this and did post their real names, email address in public forums. Imagine going into sites just to goof off or learn about how other people live only to find out years later they will be judged by what sites they go into. Not only that but be judged for their opinions, especially on hot topics. It's getting to the point where anyone can use your auto town sticker with the municipality you reside in and your license plate to track where your address is and then it might be possible, I don't know for sure, to get the email address of each individual. Perhaps being registered with DMV online would make it possible then. Just put the information in any search site and find out what you want to know to do whatever you want to that person. This is scary considering that this Tony Allamo has acces to both when his followers put those flyers on the cars. Maybe it's not a bad idea to change email address every so often and do what others here have suggested have one for curious sites and another for just family/friends.
Sorry for the way this post looks. My paragraphs won't stay when I click to save post and my spell check isn't working to well either
