    Panda Termint Cabal Of One

    Agreed, Petey.

    You may remember that I was the unlucky soul who got to pick Phyll up at the airport upon her return to ANZO in 80/81 (thanks a bunch, Mike! :omg:).

    I got to experience first-hand her displeasure at being "home" in the ANZO backwater. She never forgave me for being there and communicating. I left the SO forever within months of her return.

    Dart Smohen once commented to me that they may just as well have posted Pol Pot as CO ANZO, it would've been less traumatic for all concerned. :yes:

    I will never forget Phyll Stevens as long as I live - ALL of of her operating basis was just plain nuts - One of them that comes to mind was "Audit the public !" - bullshit - AUDIT AND TRAIN YOUR STAFF ! - they are the ones who are willing to be there and help ! - they have the most faith - ( or delusion ) - or is there a little side matter called " Gross Income " ? - or a full blown dramatization of hubbards real personality ? - I will NEVER forget her , and I suspect she was a party to covering up a staff members suicide - I have more to say , but enough for now :angry:

    That would have been her second go-round, as she first came around 75 to be CO Sydney Day after Helen and John Parselle hotfooted it out. (John recruited me. Thanks a bunch.) Then she was "called to Flag" as it was euphemistically known, and ended up at my desk at the dag end of her routing form on her way home. I believe a short stint being "handled" came before it. By the time she got to me, she was pretty shitty, specially at the idea of being received by me. I debated for a while about how to deal with her. In the end I thought I'd kill her with kindness, that being what she would hate the most. So I gushed all over her and she loathed it but couldn't complain, and I was pretty tickled. Then she went home and you would have copped it, poor Panda.

    I love what Dart Smohen said. Very apt!

    Lol, yes, it was Round Two. Of course I was also there for Round One but, in my mind, Phyll as CO Syd Day was a walk-in-the-park compared to Phyll as CO ANZO. :nervous:

    Yes I can see she would be!

    Ya, I can well see Phyll doing a full blown "dark-side" thing. As I said, she was "intense" when I knew her . . . and maybe that was her sitting on the powder-keg of charge and hate that later became dramatized.

    It's another example of the screwy, flawed "tech" of $cn product.

    It's also true that she didn't have any executive power when I knew her. She was just one of the rest of us.

    But give these "intense" types power, and certainly when coupled with screwed up case and the monster is let loose. Add to this a threat of displeasure from above as a consequences of "failure" to get results . . . . and :angry::angry:

    I actually wonder if Phyll has any idea of how much $cn failed her :ohmy:

  7. I told you I was trouble

    I told you I was trouble Suspended animation

    What is this 'case' of which you speak?


    There is no 'case' just people in differing stages of growth.

    Phyll had a deep sadness in her ever alert eyes and I believe she did know that scio failed her, I hope she now rests in peace, I really liked her (though I didn't work under her, thank goodness).

  8. I told you I was trouble

    Deleted (dopey double post).
  9. degraded being

    degraded being Sponsor

    She didn't have "case" she had "grace". She had it audited out and it toined her inta a monster. It was horrible!! The Senior C/s said to the poor intern:
    "You F*$&ing BT ridden piece of s%?*!!!. NOW LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE. I said CASE! Audit out her F%*=ing CASE! NOT her F@%&ing GRACE!. And as you can see from the many anecdotes told here, the results were not priddy. BTW, that intern hasn't seen the outside of the rpf from that day to this. P was once sent to Auckland Org to torment poor Div 6ers there because, well, that's the scientology point on the planet that was as far away from FLAG and ANSO CLO that you could possibly get. This is true.

    Interesting list, thanks for posting! I recognised a few people there including "Quintin Bryce" -- surely not this one?
  12. degraded being

    degraded being Sponsor

    From one of those "I am a Scientologist" pages. (BTW, these days, those pages are like taking your clothes off in public aren't they?)

    "...Hello, my name is Quintin Bryce, and here is a little bit about myself:
    I was born in London, England and lived there for 7 years. We then moved to East Grinstead in West Sussex which is in the Southern part of England. Saint Hill Manor, which is established in East Grinstead, was where L. Ron Hubbard did a lot of his work. I went to Greenfields School (a Scientology school) for 6 years until moving out to Australia in 1992. In 1997 I finished my schooling and now I study courses at the Advanced Organization of Saint Hill...."

    LOL'd at the list of Aussie "scios", FTS.
    Maybe we should do a table with a "whatever happened to so-and-so?" addendum.

    I just added to my post that this is a very old list.

    I would LOVE to know where some of these people are! Can we do it? :biggrin:

    You say that as if you think it's a bad thing! :biggrin:

    We should do it, we'd probably need a get-together to compare notes.
    There are a lot of "gone" people on that list; some speaking out, some who would probably prefer to just remain "quietly gone".
