Response to as we sow, so shall we reap.
Unperson said "ALcor no doubt made their decision based partly on the fact that TW was a famous and wildly successful person." and "you ignored Platt's main point--guidelines are not strict rules to be followed in every case, but just something to GUIDE."
He is absolutely correct. The point is that Alcor has no firm policy on this that is fair to all of its members. If they let one case be done without prearranged funding, they should let all of them. Of course I advocate they do NO unfunded suspensions.
"I think freezing TW was a good decision." says un. He also thinks cryonics should be a church.
"Yes, it did some damage as well. CI, for example, is now a cemetery," On the contrary, this was a blessing in disguise. I have posted elsewhere on the superior legal protections that exist for those interred in cemeteries, over those who are held at companies as research specimens (Alcor's status). I'll hunt for that prior thread if anyone can't find it.
