Does anyone know of people who've gotten their folders back and how they did it?
If you've been off auditing lines for a while, chances are your folders are buried in some archive along with thousands of other off-line ex-scientologists' folders that no one has looked at for years.
Could be that the contents have been lost, water-damaged, dropped, spilled, gathered up and confused/obscured with material from several other people's folders.
Thanks to GAT training and the offloading, SP-declaring, RPFing and otherwise destroying anyone with any "real" tech know-how (that is, if you assume there is indeed such a thing, which I don't) even if you WANTED to continue getting auditing at the CoS chances are they couldn't find your folders or "correctly" interpret what's in them.
What are they gonna do? go to the press and say "we found this material in Sargon the Cherub's confessions to the Church of Scientology!" to which you can answer, "say, what?? you people are f'ing crazy and must have me confused with someone else!"
Fear is the mind-killer; you have nothing to fear but fear itself.
