Phrases and/or words that still freak me out:
Interesting thread idea!
Hmm.. I did, just the other day, 'freak out' over a trigger phrase in another thread:

Hubbard redefined words and concepts like the was no tomorrow anyway.. Well.. My rantings about Q&A overthere prompted someone to invite me to become a fan of 'Clearbird' on FB.. (teasin' rapscallions!)
'Reasonable' has already been mentioned. Very bad and 'banky' to be reasonable according to mans best friend, Hubbard..
Reminds me of the Black Panther mechanism.. Also some Hubbardian conditioning:
Hubbard's black panther mechanism is another example of him trying to pull your leg. IMO, he really tries to persuade us to adobt a hostile mindset with this. He does it by 'omitting' something.

Very interesting read. Looks like Caroline Letkeman managed to provoke all that with an avatar. - Get's around Ghandi and mans best friend, the dog.
This has (surprizingly) something to with love and affinity. See, Hubturd omitted something from the 'Black Panther Mechanism', by which he seeks to describe the possible reactions a being can have in the face of danger:
He forgot to mention 'cooperate', which obviously is the human way, and had it been the $cientology way we could all have been much happier. (I think Hubturd did that omission deliberatly. It is part of the mindfuck and is designed to remove love and compassion from your options and teach agressive 'attack' behavior.)
Just imagine that instead of a panther, it's your beloved spouse barring the way. Spitting mad at you for not doing the dishes or something... Now be a good $cientologist and attack? - Or what?
<edit> Found another good ink about this: http://www.ivymag.org/blckpanth.html
There are two stable data which anyone has to have, understand
and KNOW ARE TRUE in order to obtain results in handling the person
connected to suppressives.
These data are:
1. That all illness in greater or lesser degree and all foul-ups
stem directly and only from a PTS condition.
2. That getting rid of the condition requires three basic
actions: A. Discover. B. Handle or disconnect.
Makes one want to go postal
case on post
other fish to fry
middle class pts
most of these still really annoy me but also make me roll my eyes
Yup. I agree with everything that's been listed here and elsewhere. Ever noticed that no-one is ever out 1D, 3D, 4D etc? Only ever out-2D. For us ex-SO-ers, I also LOATHE "sir". And how about liberty, that poor SO-er day-off-every-two-weeks-if-you're-lucky-and-your-stats-are-up-and-you-have-an-approved-CSW! Sorry, just a little bit of BPC -- another pet peeve! And while we're at it, how about "confront" -- as others have noted, it's cute how the Scilons can take a perfectly good word and turn it into something else. When I first got out I used to use it in the Scn sense but it alarmed people as it's an aggressive word in normal English. "Propaganda by re-definition of words" -- wasn't that a policy or something?
