I've been on this board forever, as a lurker and later a member, and I've read all of your stories and you guys are just the best. And incredibly patient with my questions! One thing I've always wondered, and I've never been able to figure out in all the stuff I've read. If you're in the Hole and you decide "fuck this, I'll leave all of my stuff and be declared", can you just go? From the way I understand it, "routing out" is the official way to leave and takes months and $$ but you leave in good standing, "blowing" is escaping. But do you have to escape-escape if you're in the Hole? Can you physically be stopped from leaving the church and kept in a "prison" forever? I understand that lots of folks have been brainwashed and think that being sent to the RPF is for their own good (crazy), but for the folks that finally come to their senses and decide enough is enough, what is then stopping them?
