Here's another anecdote of how progress is being made due to the Forums and Blogs ~~
A Mission Holder is a friend of a friend of mine.
He was telling my friend that he was confounded at how REVENUE $$$$$ cycles fizzled out.
He described that newbies would be all excited about purchasing a block of auditing, purchasing a bunch of books, purchasing their Academy Levels and then...
No return phone calls.
From total enthusiasm to total withdraw.
The Mission holder told my friend ~~ he just could not understand it !
Well my friend said to the Mission Holder...."It's the Internet you dummy, read the web. I am guessing that your newbies Googled Scientology and got wise by reading the web, hence you never hear from them again......
Just an anecdote.
I can verify, having worked in Div 6 up until the time I left a year ago, that this scenario happened OFTEN. While I was inside, I thought that the person went PTS to someone that didn't want the potential Scientologist to get help.
Now, I realize, these people just left and got on the Internet. It's pretty obvious. No dox required.
