"Haha. You can't see my scripts!"

echo "echo \"haha you can't see my scripts"\" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
But you probably mean a bootsplash

Well yeah, but you could also comment out the echo lines, or delete then all together. But then you would also need to redirect all output of the commands actually running to /dev/null or you would still have 95% of your output coming to the screen. Don't.
Shouldn't your question have been 'how do I get a bootsplash'?
It's easier if you phrase your question in terms of what you _do_ want instead of what you don't want.
If you want to stare at a black screen until login...
... it can be done.

Well, most of that stuff in the beginning is kernel messages, and as far as I know there's no wait to redirect that! Splashy and Bootsplash can probably help you, but you'll need to learn to make the screens yourself since I've never seen one that is just blank with a custom message."Today you are freer than ever to do what you want, provided you can pay for it!" --Bad Religion
