Are you following me wherever I go?
Eek! I am being stalked!
Victor, just throw her an autographed pair of knickers and she'll back right off :D

Now that I have completely derailed this thread, I want to do my liability condition and as amends I will get it back on the original trail.
So, the story seems to go: LRH turned his hat over to Mayo and DM busted him. Mayo decided to counteract and helped in starting Scn delivery outside of the org structure which resulted in the Freezone. DM fought to silence Mayo and succeeded after 10-15 years, but did not succeed in taking down the Freezone. And DM is continuing to try and build the CoS to high enough status (legally and monetarily) that it will be able to take out the FZ? Or is he continuously attacking the FZ still?
I almost got the idea that he is letting the FZ go on and get the idea he won't do anything about them, but that he plans to hit them in one go, once it seems safe... (Total speculation on my part since I didn't know anything about the FZ as of a few months ago.) I'm coming to this conclusion based on the knowledge that DM will never give up on his perceived enemies before they are wiped out and silenced.
Okay, is that the long and short of it, basically?
Based on other stories I read of LRH's death, DM was not the chosen one to succeed him but orchestrated it later himself.
