So I became admin (after starting as moderator) of scnforum.org several months or so ago. I had a systems guy (Jeff/Batman) who knows how to do a lot of the things I don't know how to do. But he's become inactive. I may end up replacing him, I think. I'm trying to learn to do more admin stuff, too, but I don't know as much as Geir and Jeff/Batman do. Though the other day, I actually put a board announcement on the forum all by myself! Progress! Anyway, I was also going to say that for anyone who does go to scnforum.org but who may not have checked in lately, here's what my announcement pertained to: I want to have no moar censorship re Xenu. Now, I was thinking of having a separate section of the board for talking about that, but, I don't know if I even want to do it that way. I've yet to see a churchie on there. And by the time a churchie googles Scn at all anywhere, or even opens an issue of Radar Magazine, he's going to already have encountered The Holy Name of Xenu! And, see, that was the whole idea. That scnforum.org would be a safe place for churchies to go and that their eligibility or whatever wouldn't be fucked with. But, as I said, they've probably already been whapped in the face with the Xenu thang. Another thing is a lot of them may already have done OTIII. I want to make quite clear: I do not in any way believe that it hurts anyone to read OT stuff. I do think that if it does become "restimulative" (I actually think this can happen) that it's eminently fixable, even if that were to happen. The main thing I think is that we didn't really want people who were still in the cult who might wander onto scnforum.org to have a problem with their eligibility to do the OT levels later if they ended up staying in CofS. But consider this: Just by going to critical sites and so on, that can get a person sec checked. Would that not come up on OT eligibility? Also, if they go to those sites and message boards- ESMB being a prominent case in point and my own forum less so but it's still applicable-really, how long are they going to be inclined to stay in the cult? I believe that there are many many people who are nominally in CofS but who are dissenting secretly. Secretly cuz maybe they have family in the cult or business partners, etc. But so many of them are like I was my first two years on a.r.s., where, privately, they are really critical of the organization. Eventually just about all those people leave. So I'm feeling my way here.
