Silver Meritorious Patron
My comment still waiting on moderation:
^^^ Shouldn’t it say, “This allows our staff to know who they are approaching SO THEY KNOW HOW to best greet and service them.”?
Well, what other reason would they need to know “who they are approaching”?
These nonsensical PR lines, clumsy and unwieldy as they are, result from the inability to come up with euphemisms for what those stickers really mean.
I have been in plenty of reg meetings where these stickers are coded and delineated. (That was something that always, always bothered me and I said so – though very timidly).
Make absolutely no mistake. These stickers are not to help you, your selectee, or anyone else other than the registrars to quickly deduce who they should (or most importantly) should not give the time of day to.
A small example of how these stickers are often used:
Red: Hot prospect. Tag team reg cycle with (hot reg names here). Finish Patron Meritorious and close on 2nd Meter. $157,000
Blue: Sell event release, appointment to see reg at mandatory seminar tomorrow. (GI/Reg line-up a mile long on what prospect will be closed on when he/she can be gotten into a one on one with the only person left that the individual still trusts. Now screw him/her over. Destroy that trust now — give promise of ARC break session later that will never happen because it’s your fault. “We tried, you were never session-able. What are you hiding?”)
Green: Mid staff/SO recruit cycle, route to …. (staff recruiter name here).
Orange: DB who comes to all events just to eat the food — ignore.
Yellow: PTS situation / Illegal / Ethics bait — ignore or get to donate big to “make amends for” (think major non-Scientology sanctioned sin committed here).
Blah, blah, blah.
Time cannot be wasted. Quotas MUST be met. Reg meetings are ruthless, cocky and rather heartless. They are all about the conqueror and the conquest, not the conquered and his/her continued well being. They are very uncomfortable. They leave one feeling dirty and compromised but that feeling is overridden by fear of not meeting the quota.
Getting past all the human barricades without getting KR’d and hauled into ethics, is "job one" for almost all public.
According to Michael (ex-solo nots d of p), the otvii folders were similarly marked. For round ball-bearing (oh so few!), pts, broke, etc. Making up categories, but close enough to the real thing and they had colored tabs.
