Possibly that people should't be afraid of posting. And they should'nt worry about OSA either. This 'public scare' that has resulted from Pattys ARS post is wholly unneccessy.
OSA has shrunk from it's former might when it was the Guardian's Office. To instill fear in former members is what they do as per Hubbards policies. They rely on that fear to keep people silent.
Posting anonymously handles the percieved threat of course, but is a manifestation of fear.
Without the fear CoS and OSA are powerless.. Hmm.. Let's have Hubbard explain that. He lectured a little piece of strangely manipulative advice on it: Lecture: Symbols and Group Processing Demo. (Note: In no way am I advocating Hubbard as a source of reason! This looks like indoc to remove respect for Police and WOG justice. Applies to OSA's symbol value as well!)
We can ignore those OSA flunks at this time. And we should!
Someone wrote that they are 'real' people and that they probably 'dragged their feet' in doing their jobs. I think that's probably true.. It's what I did most of the time in the GO actually.
Oh, their 'symbol of authority' certainly worked on me. I kept my fap shut for almost 20 years.
I only pretend to be anonymous. Anyone can click on my username at the top of any of my posts, and 'Visit SchwimmelPuckels Website' to see my real name, embarrasing pic's and a load of silly stuff about me. Dosn't take a minutes sleuthing to find my street adress and phone numbers either. (I don't have anything about Scn there. But that may change.)
I havn't been contacted or harrased by OSA. I have had old friends find me though. That's the really nice part of being out in the open.
Hmm.. OSA don't bother me. That may be because I'm a silly idjit who's inconsequential to them... It has always been so that if a critic is a significant threat to CoS they get to work on that person.
They have 'worked' a lot on Arnie Lerma, Gerry Armstrong, Keith Henson.. To name but a few. Even being a little gossip club as they are now, they are still following Hubbards war strategies and 'use the law to harrass'.
Lets not forget Tommy Davis performing for BBCs John Sweeney! - That was an OSA controlled 'handling' of a media flap. So they can be superbly entertaining too!
But the critics have become too numerous for them to harrass or even keep track of.
I won't make anyone wrong for being anonymous. There can be very good reasons to.. But this is the time to come forward in defiance!
Not only posting. Courtcases too.. The next class action suit could kick CoS's ass if people come forward and speak out.
Oh. they'll find you if you keep screaming generalities out your window.... someday....
I have never been contacted by OSA at all. It would be very easy for them to figure out who I am. But they dont even bother. I dont care if they do.
Even so, anything I have to "hide" is in my story. Post it on RFW. I dont care. I dont have any family for them to threaten me with anyways. They have all already decided which side of the fence they are on. And it was not my doing. They have nothing on me. So there.
I can't say that for others.
But that doesnt mean I will go out and identify myself and get in their road, or want Emma to give out my personal info, either.
Middle ground, baby, middle ground.
OSA, and Scientology, has their OWN crimes that they hide. Major ones. Not just the assault and abuse, but the molestation of children, violation of labor laws. Plus fire code violations of staff berthing (I dont think that is illegal, but worth mentioning anyways).
Kettle calling the pot black.
