I don't post very often but I feel a rage coming on. Marty says:-
"The eighties leaders were different than current leaders in that the former ultimately were bought."
What the fuck!!
My answer to Jim Logan in very understated language but I still doubt it will get past the censor.
David Mayo is a 70 year old who is actively living his life.
Sadly he got the worst treatment of anyone I have ever heard of from Scientology. The worst has never been published. If and when the gag agreements get shot full of holes he may be persuaded to tell everything. There is a lot to tell.
But the owners of this site know very well how he was hamstrung, after all - they did the hamstringing. Still I doubt (I sincerely hope anyway) they know the worst of what was done to him by Miscavidge. I doubt many here would have handled it so well - so before you condemn realise that you have no inkling of what went down.
I was in very many centres of Independence in the 80's and I do not know of any leader who was "bought" off. Was Bill Robertson bought?, I know Jon Atack was bankrupted, I know Robin Scott went to prison after refusing to accept a payoff to falsely incriminate others (me included). So who, exactly, was bought?
As far as I know David Mayo settled under conditions that didn't benefit him financially. Any cash received went to his financial sponsor to pay legal bills. His legal collapsed when his sponsor pulled the plug.
Remember at that time there was no internet or anonymous to assist. Things were totally different then. The two people "we" (the Royal "we") praise today were in fact responsible for many of the shameful things that were done to David Mayo.
David Mayo won't speak for himself on these matters because of his gag agreement. At 70 years of age I can assure you that no one wants that sort of shitstorm happening again. Of course if he had substantial backers to fight and win any legal action he may be persuaded but I doubt it.
He has stated many times he is no longer a scientologist and has no interest in furthering it.
Talk about false statements and generalities!! I am (nearly) speechless!
I don't know any 80's leaders who were bought. I know a few who were crushed. Didn't Debbie and her husband take $100,000? She is a current leader isn't she?
I don't know why marty has to keep coming back to "get" those 80's pioneers but he does. Last time he was shocked by the responses he had praising David Mayo. Now he is coming back for a second pasting. The man has no brains.
It isn't necessary for Marty to destroy David Mayo (the person he refers to covertly). If Marty wants the scientology billions I can hereby assure him David Mayo wants NO claim to any of it. David Mayo is NO threat to him!!!
In David Mayo's own words in his latest email to me. I hope David won't mind me pasting it here. I won't post the whole email - that he may mind!!
"Personally, I'd rather continue to be poor, honest and having nothing to do with any of them."
So martY, if you are reading this - please let an elderly man in peace - please!
I don't normally let marty get to me - I have very little interest in his ideas and opinions but sometimes his blatant hypocrisy does fire me up especially when I see him still trying to fuck over friends of mine - still - after 30 years!!
However, if marty does get his hands on the billion I hope he sees fit to throw a million odd to David Mayo as compensation and maybe a few odd thousands to others who were royally fucked by Miscavidge and his henchmen. I won't hold my breath though.
regards to all
