There is no need to yell the Mantra in a crowded theater…….where everyone is watching the Mantra. When coming across a video or animation and maybe even an article that is obviously Mantrastic, there is no need to come out blazing the Mantra in full regalia. Let the crowd watch it and then observe their comments.
The appropriate response from the Swarm would be short one liners in response to comments and maybe short Mantra-esque quips.
Remember the viewers are watching the Mantra. You cannot “un-watch” something. Let the Mantra work for you on the big screen and go into a support role.
Some have said “not reporting the links is killing the swarm”. The Swarm was well past the killing point long ago. You can pull out your James Bond style bag of dirty tricks but you won’t get anywhere Only the naïve would believe that something like the Swarm is dependent on link reporting or could be killed by not reporting links. I assume this statement was made out of fear of NOT seeing all the activity one usual sees on the Swarm.
As a proven Cat Herder, I can assure you that the process does not work in any intuitive way. As someone who has a track record of actually attracting people into using a consistent message. The Swarm is well beyond shutdown point. Coming to BUGS and reading the Swarm and the Links motivates some
Swarmers. It is good advertising but, in reality, it only helps motivate a percentage of the Swarm. It just so happens that the percentage it motivates are the only ones being vocal….and that is fine by me ….post and report.
From reading some of the responses of those that “post and report” many believe they are in some group dependent on conventional leaders and some conventional structure. They are worried about the Swarm surviving Ole Bob etc etc. Maybe at one time you were dependent
on structure where someone had to get something going and give it some structure. But those days are long gone. The Swarm, whether online, or in the local level is not dependent on some permanently defined structure in any conventional sense. The genie is out of the bottle.
There was always some thinking that we need special gimmicks or massive amounts of money to reach millions. No, you only need the basics. Right now, our terminology is being used in far flung places all around the planet. The word Anti-White is literally all over the damn place. This has had nothing to do with money or advertising gimmicks. This has been successful because of the basics.
Anti-white was seeded using only the internet and a raw application of the basics. This will work for us time and time again.
I have received some emails asking me about some new Swarm server development. Apparently, someone has emailed certain parties requesting they help work on some new BUGS site on another server or something along those lines. Those emails were not from me or Bob or anyone else involved in BUGS
management. BUGS would NEVER send random emails asking for help.
Although there is new help coming in to manage the tech demands of the Swarm, we have no intentions of moving the Swarm. While there are independent meeting places online for Swarm Europe, these are neither endorsed nor encouraged by BUGS management. We just encourage you to get out a message.
