    Thanks, OP. I see the retention problems aren't just with clients, it's with photojournalists too. And everyone else.

    They don't even have enough cultists to man the cameras anymore:

    No, Marty. You had nothing to do with creating the monster - its primary functions and processes were laid down in great detail by L Ron Hubbard in the 1960s. You and your mate Rinder were just temporarily directing its actions.

    The article by is Mark Collette at the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. It is one of the finest cult-related pieces of investigative reporting I have ever seen. Great work, Mark. Moar pl0x.

    YUMMY totally YUMMY

    I like at the end where Fairman says "I've now looked into the history of (church founder L. Ron) Hubbard and found some interesting things about him. I'm looking to get the whole picture. For 23 years, I was just blind."

    keep looking Mike, keep looking

    Oh hey, I'll give Marty a mark for admitting some personal responsibility. (He's not quite there yet. How about apologizing to the former members targeted while he was directing it, rather than shucking off all the blame on Davie?)

    High hopes, he's got hiiigh hopes....

    Somehow I doubt that Scientology's short bus holds that many people these days.

    Apologizing comes before making amends. Contrition is one of those Step programs...

    "This of course is in reference to the old 1960s days of trying to get somewhere by hitch hiking"

    Of course. scientology stuck in 50's, miscavige stuck in the 60's. stunted growth all around

    Let's see now. In the middle of the Great Recession, actual unemployment/underemployment around 20% mark, cost of living spiking, wages stagnant, benefits vanished, and still...

    with scientology's crazy is now straight up and vertical at highest evers, they can't get any takers at $2,000 a week.

    Now That's the headline! I'm more impressed with other parts in this article, but to the average American sweating it out will see that even for $2,000/week, just videograph work, wog Just Says No!

    I feel like he should get some kind of award. lol

    One of several questions Mr. Allender pretended to answer, but didn't. Made his brain seem a bit scrambled.

    It's a very good question. I really would like to know what is involved in certifying an e-meter. Is it a religious method involving something like prayers to LRH on Target 2? Or is it a physical process involving ohm meters and such?

    What happens if an auditor's e-meter fails the certification process? Do they send out letters to preclears warning them that their "rundowns" or whatever were done on sub-standard equipment?

    A "Silver Cirt" of meters is supposed to be done every two years at Gold.

    physical maintenance. who knows if any was actually done. Maybe changed a battery, and of course hundreds of $$$ for this precise tech. most of all, it was (shock warning) another money grab and also control mechanism, especially those not physically in an org. It gave them up to date address, phone, marital status, bridge status so they can be regged moar.

    "Physical maintenance" eh? Looking it over to make sure the knobs work basically? Seems like anyone of average intelligence and familiarity with the product could do that.

    I don't see why Allender makes a big deal out of the certificate thing.
  32. Anon PTS Member

    Because a> he's a scilon; b> he's an asshole.

    Btw, just to make it clear, that Q&A pdf will not really be Allender answering (not on his own anyway). The journalist wanted to interview Allender but he wouldn't or wasnt' allowed because he's an idiot, chosen for his blind obedience, bull-baiting tech quals and not for his ability to talk to "wogs" spontaneously and in a reasonable manner (as we've seen from numerous protest videos). The carefully considered answers were probably done by committee.

    He was absolved by his auditor in session, ergo, no crimes committed.

    To be a Scientologist, one proves it by paying the necessary donations and taxes to the 'culch', then reports it dutifully to IRS, who rejoin, "Yes, he's certainly a Scientologist".

    This is true all the way down to paying for the E-meter biannual Silver Cert. They swap out the battery and blow the inside out with compressed air at Gold and call it "maintenance".
