RightOn said:Hi, RightOn here.
I went over to ESMB and was reading all the posts about the list. I don't have an account there, or know any of the people on there. Please explain to them that the list was made from internet posts I found and people sending me names, and that I really don't who these people are. I don't think they understand that I cant possibly know who everyone is. And there will be mistakes an errors. I have received many names from people that just didn't pan out at all, and were not even Scientologists.
I read that that the admin's. name is Emma? She is not on my list here, and I would like to add her. I have no idea who she is or her story. Please keep in my mind I am not an ex sci, and can't possibly know all these people, like they do.
Although all updates are now only added to the wiki and not here ., I can't really update the list here.
BUT I do want to make sure that Emma's name is on the list here, I think it is very important. Please send her my sincere apologies, but I don't know her, just like she doesn't know me. I think way in the beginning she may have PM"s me??? and wanted me to email her directly, and I told her I only talk through WWP and I never heard back from her.
This is a precautionary method I take, and I don't talk to anyone via regular email.
SO I hope you can please tell people on ESMB that I am only human, I do not know all these scis, and ex-scis, and their stories. Most names were sent to me or found on the internet. So mistakes will be rampant. Apologize for me about the title of the list too.. and all. Like I said... I know there will be mistakes and discrepancies.
Also thank everyone for participating.
the list hit 500 on the wiki!!!
It's a long tedious job that is going to last for a long time, please tell people, that I made the list with my best intentions, and that was to help people. This is something I hold dear to my heart.
RightOn said:Well , it's Dec 9th.
We have 23 days left to find approx. 150 names to reach 1000 by Jan 1st.
Looking mighty grim.
Attentions all ex members!
Is there anybody you know that we are missing or do you know someone who would like to be added to the list?
Think back.... anyone you know who is an ex member, that has spoken out on a forum, did interview, newspaper, radio or atteneded a protest and uses thier actual name?
If someone has an account on ESMB can you please post this message over there?? Thanks
Thanks to all who are helping! We need moar help!!!
To reach 1000 by Jan 1st, would be fap-tatious!
Another shameless bump because the list now has OVER 1.000!!!
"The following is a list of people that have left the official Church of Scientology organization and have spoken out publicly against it. Although some of them still believe in the validity of the core precepts and practice them outside of the the Church of Scientology, all of them have denounced the legitimacy of the organization itself. The names are listed alphabetically by last name. As of the last count, there are 1005 names on this list. The purpose of this list is to give courage to others who are still in to finally leave, or those who have already left to speak out. Also, perhaps those that are still in may recognize a name they may have known before and are unaware they have left. It is also important to show how extensive this list is, especially now that some senior former members have come forward. The list demonstrates that there is a significant problem with organized Scientology.

RightOn said:You know, the names we just added (and subtracted) should have been on there long ago.
It would be SO easy for an ex to just look at the list and say you know so and so is not on there. They all know each other, they know who is out and who spoke out. I wish they would lend a helping hand if they can help.
I couldn't find this posted before so forgive me if it has been. Over at WWP they are putting together a list of all Ex-Scientologist who have spoken out. I think that it is awesome. I think OSA would hate to see all these names posted together. And if Scientologist see the list and recognize names of old friends on there it will plant a seed of doubt.
So here is the list so far. 242 people. If you know of anyone else you can post them here and I'll post them over in WWP to be added. Or you can post them over there too. Please post their full name and any information you have about them. Links are great too.
