    Carmel, then posting under a nom de plume, introduces "FMD" into EP's vocabulary and to the lexicon of ESMB! :ohmy::happydance:

    And that, dear hearts, is your "bump" for the day from EP! :coolwink:

    Good thread to bump. I think, here on ESMB, meticulously going through all of Veda's threads and posts could quickly bring someone to a 9 1/2: Realization it was not only all about the money but about totalitarian control and enslavement. In addition to the many great contributions from all the members here, I believe Veda's hard work and very thorough documentation should be specifically recognized and utilized for getting a person through all the steps. They have helped me tremendously in this regard.

    I need help! my family member is a scientologist and she moved to the center at clear water about 2 yrs ago. She says that she is almost done w her internships? I feel terrified for her and I want to know if there is anything that can be done. We have minimal contact with her. didnt know where to turn to any more.

    It happened to me, too. And more.

    I thought I should mention that I am particularly adverse to responding to threads that are over five years old since the last post. It's not a hard set rule, there are no hard set rules, it's not wrong to do but I might generally opt to start a new thread if the last post of the thread is older than five years or so. Just my opinion.

    That makes sense. I didnt even check the date. Just learning the ropes here.

    There is no rule that you can't "bump" an old thread if you want. Sure, sometimes the thread is old and unimportant -- but if it speaks to you and you have something to say -- go ahead. It's OK.

    The phrase "oldie but goodie" comes to mind. Bump what you like.
