Setting the Record Straight

I feel that it is time that I set the record straight regarding myself.


I’ve already shucked the title of “Scientologist” earlier on this message board and I feel it’s time to go all the way.

I feel that honesty is the best policy at his point. This way if I’m totally honest about my situation and OSA can no longer hurt my reputation by forwarding the lie that I’m OSA.

It seems as though recently OSA has been hard at work again trying to convince people that I’m OSA. I’ve been and done my share of things in life but working for the Office of Special Affairs of the church of scientology was not one of them.

I realized recently that OSA was at their work again when I was innocently trying to build a friendship with Silvia Kusada when things went completely wrong. ARC breaks started to happen for no reason and things went downhill quickly. Now I realize that someone was 3rd parting me by telling her that I was OSA.

I know that what I have to say at this time will more than like result in my being banned from ESMB. If it happens, I will understand and not hold it against Emma. But after 9 years, I feel it’s time to clear some things up and set some things to right.

The truth is just this:

My name is Tim Higgs. In the years 2003-2007, I did post under the name of “Truth Seeker” on ARS. Let me also make this clear, I’m not Neil Woods as it is stated on Aida Thomas’s blog.

The name “Truth Seeker” was giving to me back when I was a teenager by a man of wisdom while he was trying to guide me through some of the darkest days of my life.

I remember one day we were talking about something and he looks at me with a surprise on his face and said: “Ah, you’re a truth seeker”. I then said: “Well, isn’t everyone?” and he then said: “no”. This early man of wisdom in my life was into Buddhism.

He was the first person who introduced me to the idea of being responsible for what happening in your life because it could be the result of something you did in a past life. Up to that point, I pretty much blamed all the shortcomings in my life on the situation I was born into.

Back in 2003, when I stared posting on ARS, I did what I felt was the best thing to do. I had totally ARC broken with the church of scientology because of the outnesses at my local Org and the ED International not returning my letter to him warning that if he didn’t take action and give me justice, I was going to communicate these outnesses to the 3rd dynamic. When I didn’t hear back from him, that pretty much was the straw that broke the camels back for me.

Back in 2003, in addition to writing posts about what happened to me, I compiled an “osa trolls” list for the purpose of warning people who the OSA operatives were so readers of the newsgroup could know who they were and not be the effect of them. I picked up this idea from a person who posted before me on ARS who went by the name of “Dorian”. In my opinion, “Dorian” seemed to be a very intelligent man and maybe also an attorney.

Yes, I admit at this time that I put people on that list that should not have been. But at the time, I firmly believe that they did belong on that list. My intention for the “trolls list” was not to malign anyone but to protect readers from the games OSA plays.

One person in particular that I put on that list that should not have been on that list was Tory Christman.

From my understanding, Tory had done some work for OSA before leaving the church and joining the LMT with Bob Minton. Because shortly after Tory joined the LMT, the LMT went down, I assumed that there was a strong possibility that she was mole and played a big part in bringing it down. Part of the reason I suspected this is because it is one of OSA’s modus operandi’s to use infiltration to bring down an enemy camp. I thought at the time that is was best to be safe than sorry when it came to Tory so she was put on the list.

I realize now that Tory was not OSA. Tory, if you are reading his, I truly apologize for all that happened between us. I know that you are probably still angry and you have the right to be. I know that we said a lot to each other that resulted in some hurt feelings. Tory, I’m sorry, I made a mistake. I hope you can forgive me one day. I know that you wanted me to admit to this in a public domain, well now I’m doing so now. I guess it’s better late than never.

There were other people that I put on that list that should not have been on that list like Barbara Graham ( Barbz ) and Arnie Lerma. Barb, I know that I use to call you a “OSA whore” back then. I’m sorry, I realize now that you were not OSA. You just seem to get a kick at of picking with my posts and I assumed that you were OSA for doing so. I guess you just liked fucking with me. :eyeroll: In my opinion, Arnie Lerma may be a little weird, but I don’t think he’s OSA. There’s also Joe Lynn, aka “Zinj” but I’m still not sure about that guy but my current consensus is that he’s not OSA just has an active imagination and needs to get a life.

Yes, there were probably other names on that list that shouldn’t have been on it but I had to put their names on the list because even if they weren’t OSA, they were forwarding OSA’s agenda against me and were behaving like OSA. They were PTS to OSA and were assisting OSA’s even if they didn’t realize it.

Please understand, a person can be forwarding OSA’s agenda and not necessarily be working for OSA or even be conscious that they are doing so. OSA seemed to be good at making pawns out of others to do their dirty work and ARS had its share.

Understand, they were a lot better at it and more formidable than they are now. To be publicly against the church of scientology in the 90’s and early 2000’s was a very risky thing to do, a lot riskier than it is now.

As for the Silvia Kusada blog, yes I created that blog. With the cooperating of Silvia with her post bashing me and Aida’s post bashing me, I will bring the blog down. But they all need to come down simultaneously. The purpose of the blog was to get her to see some of the outnesses of her life and to protect the public’s interest. If she doesn’t see that by now, I don’t think she ever will. I never meant the blog to be up for years.

Please understand, that I did what I did because I felt it was for the best.

Well, I hope I didn’t miss anything.


But I’m not worried, if I did, I’m sure the good members of ESMB will remind me. :eyeroll:

Wow.

Thanks for being honest.

I just have to say that I would never do what you did and don't think most people would either.

That was unbelievably mean, juvenile, and creepy.

Please tell how you came to the decision to come clean and I have another question:

Do you see how bizarre this behavior is?

I'm glad you came clean but as people were asking you to do so, you were VERY nasty. Do you want to stop being that way?

Right now I just don't know what to think.

You shared how you got the name Truthseeker. May I respectfully ask how you chose the name Misterfabian?

The Fabian strategy is a military strategy where pitched battles and frontal assaults are avoided in favor of wearing down an opponent through a war of attrition and indirection. While avoiding decisive battles, the side employing this strategy harasses its enemy through skirmishes to cause attrition, disrupt supply and affect morale. Employment of this strategy implies that the weaker side believes time is on its side, but it may also be adopted when no feasible alternative strategy can be devised. -- from Wikipedia

Wow. I'm not sure what to say about all that except thanks for being honest.

I have a million questions for you but right now I can't even think of one.

I need to mull this over for a while.

I don't know if you realize what's just happened.
You committed a FEDERAL CRIME on me, and there is a police
report on you, as "Truthseeker" due to putting my name and phone
number up on a PORN site.

Thankfully a few critics traced "For a Good time call Tory" ....
To YOUR, "Truthseeker's" computer. Once we found that out, I called the
Burbank Police, who came over and made out a Police Report on YOU.

You didn't just post a few things.....you posted HUNDREDS and
HUNDREDS of sick lies about me.

I'll talk with the cops about this. It may not be good.

I hope this is a lesson for any other morons who are out there,
being USED by FUCKING OSA____and trust me, I told you then
you were running an OSA Program, and my guess is you still are.
Perhaps not for long. We shall see.

And No, I don't think "Everyone is OSA"...but I do know their routine,
more than most people on the Net. They USE people, without the
people even knowing it.

Thank you for trying to tell the truth. As I told you then,
and I still feel this way: You couldn't be farther from
a "Truthseeker". Don't like it? Deal with it.
It's time. :omg:

Tory/Magoo
PS: Normally I am a very forgiving person, but there are
a few people where more than "I'm sorry" is going to do it,
and you happen to be one of them.
 

I told you I was trouble

Tim,


I'm glad you came clean ... and I hope you can sort things out with the people that you hurt and that they will forgive you but if they don't you will need to accept that and the consequences that may arise from it.

It's cool that you feel comfortable here and want to contribute genuinely, we are an unusual bunch but most of us have hearts of gold despite appearing otherwise at times.

What's done is done, scientology encourages arseholes and many are there right now probably doing way worse than you did, it is an environment that rewards such behaviour, ESMB does not reward it though, and I sincerely hope others don't now jump on the nasty bandwagon .... because it only concerns you and those you affected and is no one else's business.

:yes:

I wasn't around in the ars days so I don't have a lot of info on it all.

I'd like to ask you why you now feel it is time to out yourself? Has something specific happened, will you share it and what do you expect the consequences to be?

If you never worked for OSA, why did you do what they do?

That's a start, Tim, and I'm glad you've done this and I believe you are mostly sincere. But not completely.

The name "Tim Higgs" doesn't show up as anyone who has ever done a Scientology service. So how can we confirm this is you and you are not Neil Woods? You'll need to help us out here.

Because if Neil Woods' wife found out he was hitting on Silvia and potentially put the family in danger, the wife just might have asked Neil to back down and stop causing problems. And that's the other thing - you were coming onto Silvia like a stalker - obsessed and controlling.

Embarassing others publicly and spreading slander are very serious things. People's livelihoods, families and jobs depend on their reputations.

We don't require anyone on ESMB to reveal their identities, but there is no sense in stating your true identity if the identity itself is fictitious.

What I see is that you want to bring this war you started to an end. I am sure many others do, as well. But I think it's only fair that Silvia, Tory and Aida to individually work something out with you if they choose to do so - and they are not obligated to do so. You want the information about you taken off their blogs and other places and offer to do the same. But that is not enough and I know you know this.

I am sure they will contact you and tell you what they require. Until then, I'm okay with you posting here as long as it isn't vicious, mean stuff. I think it's good you took the first step and I congratulate you on this. That took personal courage.
