    Default ESMB lives on. Meet your new Administrators

    Hi everyone.

    I wrote my "I'm done" thread in April and since then nothing has happened to change my mind. If anything I'm more determined to rid my life of Scientology than ever before.

    Fortunately others are braver & stronger than me and have volunteered to take on ESMB. It's probably no surprise to learn that these people are Mick Wenlock & Ethercat.

    I've made both Mick & Ethercat administrators and these guys will take over as active admins immediately. I will stay on as an co-administrator, until Mick & Ethercat are grooved in. Once they are confident in handling the software & backend I will hand over all control to them.

    I trust Mick & Ethercat completely. I wouldn't be handing over ESMB to anyone whom I didn't trust 100%.

    Please throw your support behind these guys. Until you've run a forum, you have no idea of the headaches that come with it. Both Mick & Ethercat have run successful forums & do understand what is involved. I hope you will be as supportive of Mick & Ethercat as you have been of me.

    I'm sure Mick & Ethercat will post on how they each see their roles in running ESMB and I'll leave it to them to comment (unless they specifically want me to).

    Thanks for your patience while this change in management has been in progress.

    If you have any questions or concerns please voice them on this thread & they will be addressed.

    Default ESMB lives on. Meet your new Administrators


    Thanks Emma for such an awesome site and transitioning over into the hands of such trustworthy and cool people in Mick & Ethercat.

    I was wondering how it would be....couldn't be happier!



    Scientology literally saved my life! Without Ron's books I would have frozen to death!!! (see avatar)

    Scientology in one word? HelluvaHoax!

    I never felt as free as when I freed myself from "Total Freedom".

    For offended Scientologists reading this blasphemy about L. Ron Hubbard---my apologies for talking about real life without lying to you, like Scientology, with goo-goo theta-talk. I know you don't have a floating needle right now. You're not supposed to.

    That's great news. Thank you for everything you've done Emma and all the best for your new, immeasurably improved Scn-free life!

    This forum is an important stepping-stone on the journey out of cult indoctrination, and I'm very glad to know that it will continue to be.

    Thank you Emma for having kept the board going for so long. You are an impressive and inspirational woman.

    There are few that I would have trusted more than Mick and Ethercat, they more than get my vote and my support.

    ESMB has marked my transition from the cult almost from the get go, and it has been there for me in the good and bad times.

    Big thanks and huge hugs to you Emma.

    Excellent news. I promise to behave myself and be kind to my new "leaders".

    Emma, I think ya know how I feel about you and what this board has meant to me. Life saving, oxygen, a light in the darkness, hope when there was none and a multitude of other vital things.

    So it is with great relief to know ESMB will be here, in good hands, for those behind me.

    With eternal gratitude for you Emma

    p.s. if you are ever in my neck of the woods, there's always tea in the pot and wine/beer in the fridge. And any and all rumours that I can cook up a feast...are true. You and your family are always welcome at my table.

    Thanks, Emms

    Glad Mick and Ethercat have stepped in to take over the global monster that ESMB has become - as this cult continues to dwindle into total insignificance, this forum will still be necessary for those who escape. Glad to see it will continue.

    This is great news Emma!

    Not about you ‘retiring’ of course (we shall miss you terribly), but that we have two stalwarts to take over and ensure the continuity of this wondrous place.

    It was such a simple idea – start a forum and allow people to talk about their experiences in a cult. Simple, but utterly brilliant.

    Thank you for everything you have done Emma. Perhaps one day, in the not too distant future, when academics are chronicling the demise of the cult, we might hear some of the untold stories about what it was like trying to keep order in a madhouse (the nicest sort, of course).

    I’m so glad that you have been able to leave the cult behind. You can hold your head up high and be proud of your contribution in the fight against this insidious evil. You made a difference.

    A very big difference.
