Another thing...I think that using Scn lingo can really piss people off. I think it's different than just saying "Oh, hey, I left CofS but I still like Scn." or even " I'm still in CofS and just looove it."
I think if you're discussing Scn tech with others who like it, that using the lingo is ok if you are trying to discuss a specific procedure or concept. But if you're doing it on a public forum with a mix of people, it can sometimes really annoy others who don't like Scn stuffies. And I really get that.
That's why I liked Grundy's humorous thread about the lingo. On that one, we were just doin' a little fun J & Ding.
When I was a staff member, my Mom used to get annoyed with me when I'd use Scn lingo. She'd say "Oh for god's sake, speak English." Actually- she was right. If one is in a social or family or business setting with people who aren't Scientologists, one should speak plainly without the Scn-ese. There are ways, you know, to discuss Scn ideas - IF THAT'S THE TOPIC OF CONVERSATION- without using a lot of specific Scn lingo. ("nomenclature".)
