the last I heard of them they were in Denmark after Per had been declared.
It seems a bit odd to me that in such a sort amount of time you have started threads looking for these people:
Lena and Per Svenlin
Debbie and Robin Jones
Micky Del Amor
What is your current standing with the Church?
Do you agree that DM is an SP?
I'll give you a couple clues about me though. It might help you figure me out, if that is what you'd like to do.
Clue 1: I care what I think about people. I don't care what others think about me.
Clue 2: I don't believe in much of what I learned from the church. And amongst those things that I don't believe is in this personality-type called SP.
Clue 3: I am odd.
You won't find me in the mob that wants to hang David Miscavige or anyone else.
I won't be writing stories here that are critical of anyone. I have done some of that; my life was not enhanced in doing. I dropped it like a bad habit.
If I got into that, it would end for me anything that I got from Scientology that has been of value. Admiration is my most valued particle.
This makes sense to me: "The static, in practicing not-isness, brings about the persistence of unwanted existences, and so brings about unreality, which includes forgetfulness, unconsciousness and other undesirable states."
I love clarity. Labeling people as bad or suppressive is hateful and is a practice of not-isness or resistance. I won't do it.
Does that help?
What is my current standing in the Church? I have no idea and I could not care less. I may be declared SP, I may not. What the church thinks of me is not my business.
I'm sorry, what is "not-isness"? Is that "isn't-ness"? "not-ness"?

I am curious about old friends I haven't seen for decades who were also in the CoS. These are people about whom I've already searched the Internet, but can't find out much about them -- or even anything about some of them. This makes me think they're working very hard to stay hidden.
I sometimes fantasize that some of my old friends are already here at ESMB or WWP or Marty's or elsewhere, posting under a pseudonym, like me.
However, I have refrained from mentioning their names here, in case they're either still in but under the radar (and would be hassled if I mentioned their name here) or in case they're out and hoping no one ever mentions their name in connection with CoS or Scientology in general.
I know some ex-Scientologists are now living new lives -- with new jobs, new friends, new communities, new relationships -- who would like to keep hidden forever their past associations with Scientology.
That's why I don't post threads looking for specific people. I also think putting a person's name in a thread makes them much more visible to search engines.
Others obviously feel differently about this. As they say, it's a free country.
