    3. Scientology Technology

      This is a forum for analytical discussion of the "tech" and how it works (or doesn't) and changes being made by the current management. It is not for glowing reviews, quests to find someone to administer the "tech", or discussion about auditing oneself. Please put those and similar subjects in the "Freezone, Independents, and other flavors of scientology" forum.
