Mass tweet method might work-- or Twitter might consider it illegal-- I'm not sure.

keywords for google search: cryonics, twitter, mass mailing, mass email.

I'm not sure if it's considered legal by Twitter to do a mass email with about 7 or 8 names at a time in the reply section of the original twitter. I guess I'll find out soon enough if they stop me or destroy my account. Until I find out more, I'll leave it here at a one time experiment.

This option was explored when I found a cryonics tweeter posting multiple tweets of the same topic to various "@"'s, the twitter equivalent of an email address. I found the mess on the hashtag list to be annoying so asked him to consider posting multiple tweets in a different way. My method actually works better.

His only objection was that an individual tweet would make the recipient feel special. However, I would point out that each recipient will find out that they are not special once they hashtag the topic. Better to mass mail under a reply button.

Mark Plus (Potts) is ageing more rapidly than his chronological years.

by Rick Potvin

I've known Mark since 1991 and when I first met him, he had reddish hair and and a balding pattern already setting in. Now, he has mostly grey hair and a much bigger bald area.

I've also noticed personality changes.  Whereas in previous years, our arguments were still framable as good natured, lately he has become more onerous and relentless in his personal attacks on me that disregard the spirit of our longstanding "frenemy"-ship. He's become more ruthless in his attacks on me, online.

He considers himself to be a "senior cryonicist" and "Venturist minister". His increasing nastiness might be the result of my exposee of the fake photos being used by his organization, The Venturists... in promoting the charity cryonics cases Aaron and Kim. I contend that fake photos are not needed-- yet they're used which raises the question as to how much more of the charity cases are fake. Mark is on the witness list according to the New York Supreme Court case where Alcor is continuing to sue Larry Johnson despite having said that the case is finished. I hope Mark doesn't age too quickly so that we can see him on the witness stand to counter the claims made against the Venturists by Johnson.

Kitty Wakfer tweeted that Alcor's lawsuit against Johnson was over but failed to see that it's NOT over at all.

by Rick Potvin

It's very interesting how Alcor has made members and other interested people think that the lawsuit against Johnson was over. Alcor conveniently underplayed that fact that a major lawsuit still continues against the publisher Vanguard. That effectively means that the lawsuit regarding Johnson's book continues... and isn't over all. Alcor pretended that by winning one part of the set of lawsuits they could claim the issue was ended, leading people to generally believe it was ALL over. In fact the biggest monetary part of the lawsuit is still on. Alcor's underplay of this idea amounts to lying by omission or lying by deemphasis. DISCUSSION KITTY WAKFER tweeted Alcor suit against Johnson over... suit aginst publisher continues-

Pizer's cryonics "back up trust fund" could be prelude to collapse of Alcor & CI.
