    I'm happy for you. Now the creeps that have been falsely accusing you of all kind of bullshit will have to find something else to do.

    Hi Emma,
    Just so glad I was able to be here. It absolutely made a difference to me personally on exiting the cult of insanity. It helped me find footing and kept me grounded and kept me from losing it and spinning after ending over 35 years in. It helped me, to a marked degree, to get back my own thinking and truth. It hasn't solved everything but the rest is, obviously, up to me. It was a safe place to be and hang out and, of course, to keep an eye on all the breaking news that made my day so many times! I've made friends here and some in real life and I wish I could know more people here personally... and maybe I will now that I know the world, I mean the board, will end.

    My sincere gratitude and love for virtually giving birth to this board and helping so many people in so many ways!

    Love,
    Arthur Dent.

    Lurkers, hate to disappoint, but it really is a cult. Sorry.

    Emma, my heart sunk when I read your post, but I totally get it. ESMB has served an amazing role in helping people. You did a wonderful thing and devoted many years to making sure it was a safe haven for exes who needed to connect with people who understood. It was a great gift to so many.

    You were a pioneer, putting up this board. I'm sad that there are people who saw fit to attack you, and especially that you have lost friendships over it. It shouldn't be that way. I would be fed up too.

    More than anything though, I want for you the freedom that you have given me and so many others through your board. I was able to stop paying attention to ESMB when I didn't need it any more, and to put my healed self into the world and finally live my life. You haven't yet had that freedom, and I am truly happy for you that you are about to

    Thank you Emma, for helping me heal. Now it's time for you to spread your wings and live free of your past. Godspeed!

    I'm done with having Scientology play any part in my life.

    I'm done with everything to do with this game.
    You owe nothing to anyone, if you're done you're done, and good job.

    Have an excellent the rest of your life without a stupid cult in it.

    Dear Emma,

    I don't know you "in real life" but I know that you are a good person. Thanks for all you have done with ESMB. You have the right to stop it whenever you want. You can be proud of this part of your life!

    Take care and have a wonderful time!

    All the best to you and your loved ones.

    I don't blame you one bit, Emma. But, that being said, I am sad about this because I don't believe that you deserved the bullshit you've had to put up with. I'm glad you are living your life, of course, and I want you to do what YOU want to do.

    I wouldn't want you to be driven off the internet or have anyone attempt to do that or have you be intimidated in any way. I would want you to do what you want to do out of interest, happiness, personal choice.

    I support your decisions.

    Hi Emma

    I can't even begin to properly exress my gratitude to you for putting this board here and keeping it here through all the crap that you have to deal with! As a rule I read more than post.....I continually have my views challenged here and feel that because of this resource, more than anything else, I have been able to grow and learn to accept, and understand, the numbing experience that has been scn. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    I wish all the very best for the future wherever that may take you!

    Eternally grateful

    I'm done with everything to do with this game.

    ESMB is paid for until October 2012 at which time it will cease to exist. If you are an historian please take what you want from the archives before October. I'm prepared to give a copy of the database to a handful of people who can do what they want with it. Those people are Mick Wenlock, Paul Adams, Ray Hill & Ethercat. Those people might be able to salvage something.

    I suggest registering at "Reach for The Tipping Point" message board if you want a new board. It is very well run & I have the highest regards for Ethercat. Also I think OCMB is accepting new registrations currently. Glibby, Sponge & RIF do a great job over there and it deserves support too.

    I'm sorry if this announcement upsets anyone, but I simply can't do this anymore. I started out trying to do something good and it's ended up that I have made enemies everywhere. I don't want to read anymore crap about how I'm a sellout, a liar, an OSA operative, a bitch etc. I'm over it. I need to live my own life now, free of Scientology & the effects it has on people while in and also after they leave.

    I only have one piece of advice left for anyone considering leaving Scientology. Read about Hubbard & find out who he really was. Read stories from OT8s who made it to the top of the Bridge & found out there was nothing there. Educate yourself as much as you can and as quickly as you can and once you've come to an understanding of what happened to you - RUN LIKE FUCK. Get away from ANYTHING & EVERYTHING to do with Scientology including groups formed by exes.

    Go back to school. Travel. Play soccer. Join Rotary. Meditate. Raise kids. Volunteer for the Red Cross. Do ANYTHING except hang around. Scientology took too much of your life already. Don't give it one more second than necessary to recover.

    Over & out.
    Fair enough Emma - you are bound to go to heaven - you have served your time in hell.

    Please do send me a copy of the database - I will investigate making it an archive that can be of use. I would hate to see the awesome work you have accomplished here not be of use for people in the future.

    Don't look back my dear - you have been an inspiration to all of us. Very proud indeed to cal you a friend. You have my private email and my home phone number - make use of them any time you wish to discuss something really important like cricket, rugby or football...

    And if you guys ever get your asses over here - you have a place to crash.

  20. Thanks Kerry, Emma, Stat, still here, Jump and 8 others says "thank you" for this post
