Uttering the word "MISCAVIGE" forbidden at Flag Uttering the word "MISCAVIGE" forbidden at Flag A conversation with someone recently at Flag tells how the word "Miscavige" is not to be uttered at Flag. He-who-must-not-be-named is always called "COB" (see oh bee). Sometimes he's called "DM" (dee em) but only in a whispered hush. If you say "Miscavige" or "David Miscavige", the Sea Org staff glance around wildly in fear to see if anyone heard that. I fell off my chair laughing when I heard that. Unfortunately, the person telling this story was serious.
