    Former scientologist Deirdre Saoirse Moen has written an very informative historical article along with a fact which may also help straighten out some misinformation regarding when the story of Xenu first appeared on the internet. It's short, sweet and to the point! :thumbsup:

    Kaufman is on and has been for 20 years.
    So is Leiby’s article from the CW Sun

    The first postings of the OT levels 1-8 including OTIII were anonymous at the time, by an ex member Joe Harrington. On his death bed he admitted “I am scamizdat!” < the name of the anon poster. He also admitted being the one that mailed me the Fishman document. Which I was raided and sued for in Aug 1995 – ending up on over 200 websites including CMU, and the National University in China.

    Federal Judge Brinkema RTC vs Lerma:
    "The dispute in this case surrounds Lerma's acquisition and publication on the Internet of texts that the Church of Scientology considers sacred and protects heavily from unauthorized disclosure. Founded by L. Ron Hubbard, the Scientology religion attempts to explain the origin of negative spiritual forces in the world and advances techniques for improving one's own spiritual well-being. Scientologists believe that most human problems can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million years ago. These spirits attach themselves by "clusters" to individuals in the contemporary world, causing spiritual harm and negatively influencing the lives of their hosts "

    …. "The Court earlier dismissed the trade secrets count as to all defendants and the copyright infringement count as to the Washington Post and its reporters. RTC voluntarily dismissed its claims against Digital Gateway systems, Therefore, the only issue remaining in the case is RTC's: .. (3) copyright infringement claim against defendant Lerma"

    Towards the end of RTC vs Lerma, $cientology dropped ALL CLAIMS for the materials I posted, and instead moved for a summary judgement, based on a .LOG file of me reading Dennis Erlich's posts on ARS, which were NOTs and NEDS he was sued for posting.

    Added: (See last line of that page contains admission)

    It was the first time that Xenu was confirmed as the real deal in a Federal Court, previous to this they would say it was a forgery...

    And if this historical posting is dated December 24th, perhaps it would have been more informative to be dated the next day, December 25th, Christmas Day...
    with the Washington Post article...


    And December 1995 WIRED magazine had great cover story summarizing what went on - this was the center page spread:


    This article has a few of the multitude of media hits about Xenu propagating at that time

    Yes, thank you, YOU get it!
    it was awareness of this factor that made the risk worthwhile to endure.

    $cientologists minds are trapped in "perhaps the NEXT secret level will provide what I desire"
    And not knowing the secret, the mind will invent something wild enough for the $cientologist to mentally justify whatever they have to endure to find out.

    Joe and I discussed this and I had no clue he was the one who posted it anonymously or that he was the one who mailed me the document in hardcopy.
    And Joe knew that first article was coming out Christmas day...
    I recall him thinking out loud when he lived with me, before moving to Sweden with Brigitta, while sitting on a bench at a park on a hilltop
    overlooking the DC skyline, he said "I feel badly that I may have caused you so much trouble" I asked him Huh? what are you referring to, and he changed the

    Secrets are the mortar
    binding lies like bricks together
    into prisons for the mind.

    While hubbard told of the Mystery Sandwich in the marketing & PR Series, to get more marks in, he was doing the exact same thing to us, the most prominent being RJ67 and the great wall of fire mystery.
  9. For Arnie, Thank You for so much! :thumbsup: So much good work over the years. :happydance:
