I left completely when I moved home to Hawaii in 1977. With the exception on one tiny but powerful communication line [with Alan Walter] I fully disconnected for 28 years until the Internet got me involved and interested once again...
It's the awesome people I'd had experiences with while involved that I missed, that brought my interest back.
Of course you became a large part of it and I want to thank you and congratulate you for a job well done. I don't think anyone could have withstood all the stress, etc, and yet you carried on.
I took a break for the past year and just recently last week started checking in again.
Lovely space you created for us all. Deepest admiration and love to you and your magnificent efforts in spite of all odds.
Bon voyage, my friend.

Arrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggh! No Esmb? Please tell us this isn't just going to end. You have done a ****fantastic**** job of creating such as safe place for Ex's, critics and anyone else who wants to learn about $cientology,discuss it, share experiences, etc. for ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL that you have done!!
I **totally** respect your views re moving on....can someone please step up to the plate (Who knows how to do this, and Emma feels safe turning it over to) and pass the baton onto them?
Blessings and hugs...call anytime~!
PS: I love this...what Sweetness and Light said:
"It has been my privilege to be a part of this robust community. Thank you, Emma, for permitting me the experience!" (((me too!))
"If you or any of your friends ever need my help in any way, all you have to do is ask." ((Ditto-I'll do the best I can: I love you ALL!))

Good on you Emma, you will always have our undying respect and love.
Thanks to Lawrence Brennan for the above quote.Rather the purpose is to make new scientologists.
And that is what they are trying to fool libraries, businesses and schools into helping them do - spread Scientology and make new scientologists.
Thank you Emma. Enjoy your life.
Be happy Emma and may life bless you.

Emma, you might feel like you have made enemies everywhere, but I know that you have made far, far more friends. And, I suspect that these enemies aren’t the sort of people you’d want as friends anyway – better to have them out in the open where you know what they are.
I can understand how you feel - I was just thinking today how much of my life I have given over to Scientology and that maybe I should stop giving this crazy cult any more of my time.
I am so very grateful for ESMB – it provided a safe haven for me at a very low point in my life – I honestly don’t know how well I would have survived without this place that you created. When someone writes a history of the demise of the cult (hopefully not too far in the future), ESMB will be seen as one of the major events in the timeline
Mere words can’t really express my gratitude, but I’ll say it anyway.
Thank you for all that you have done for us.
