Welcome Bill (gwells?)
Now, I do think WAY too much has been put on the average Scn about OWs - for example the sec checking ad infinitem.
However, there is a an observable relationship between OWs and ARC Xs (and not just cuz Hubbard said so....)
That said, I think there are many reasons why someone would want to leave a group other than OWs, including simply finding out that the group is not what they claim to be.
Thanks for sharing this!
