Look, I'm sorry if you have this impression of me. I have never claimed anywhere to have any specialist knowledge, sociological or not. In fact, I clarified that I did not claim to be highly educated. I merely stated that I've lurked for a while and read most of the blogs each day.
It is intimidating being a noob on a forum where most people know the torturous lingo back to front and have been posting for years. Humour can go very badly online, so I haven't attempted it, mistakenly thinking I'll avoid alienating myself right off the bat.
I am looking to learn and I have some questions that haven't been asked or phrased the same (that I have found), so I dove in. I am not looking for a fight or to troll. I'm really just a normal chap with an interest, but not a life-consuming interest, in this particular subject. If I've come across badly then I'll try harder, but I still want to ask things I feel may be relevant to my understanding. If anyone feels it is beneath them then by all means don't give me the time of day.
As I say, I just meant well.
Thank you, FNI.
And, welcome to this here Rodeo.
Contained in the body of work in the Threads of this Board there is more solid, accurate and insightful information than anywhere else re: El Ron (from Folks that actually interacted with Hisself) and Scn (from Folks that have done parts, or pretty much all, of everything comprising the entire "Bridge"--"Admin" & "Tech" Training and Processing). Every era, echelon and experiential scenario of El Ron and Scn has been detailed, delineated and dialogued about by Folks that saw it, were part of it, did it, left it and are now here...from the '50's to the '00's, from St. Hill to IHQ, from FCDC to Flagship Apollo.
You're most welcome to join this here big conversation. But, please understand that thousands of Folks have written millions of words in gut wrenching, explicit, honest and brilliant narratives, dialogues and analysis for nearly a decade here re: El Ron and Scn, and many of Us have read and participated in a lot of it, a buncha Us in much of it and some of Us in most all of it.
What is it you want to ask that you feel would be relevant to your understanding.
PS: Unfortunately, the "tortuous lingo" is an essential essence of Scn and the Scn experience...For some reason, for the most part, a fool progresses well in "understanding" Scn but stupid people have a hard time "getting 'It'".
