    I know a lot. It's fine that you know nothing of the times and situation, and have come to a firm conclusion. That's what scientology does to people. I'll go with a firsthand account of the times and situation that their dad and family were in. You may not believe it, but it was very effective. Carry on.

    A lady named _?_ Rios. She was a painter of Victorian Garden scenes, and other Victoriana mostly. Wicker patios and such.
    Spouse and I lived in an Historic 1897 Landmark Victorian, and that's how she and I met. They married there.
    No one knew who was or was not declared. We assumed that because we were being followed and harassed by Scn'ists , we had pro'l'ly been Declared.
    I've never seen my own, but I bet you a pretty that I've been Declared.
    Jon recanted and received an undisclosed amount of money , and I haven't heard of him since. Of course, he could be posting here for all i know. :omg:

    Veda, I dunno. But I think it was fear of going to jail PLUS the pay-off. It was a message to the Field that groups using scn material would not be countenanced.
    Threats by Joe Yanny of copyright violations, stealing their materials, Private Detectives serving Deposition papers. Noisy investigations in your neighborhood.
    As for the pay-off aspect, I don't want to sound prejudiced
    about character traits of different peoples, but I think that a nice chunk of money would've interested Jon.
    Aside from that, the 3 tapes that Jon made were extrordinarily revealing about the new structuring of COS. Damning really, as they delineated the methods that were being implemented in the re-structuring so as to make it nigh impossible to trace the money.
    Speculation on my part.

    It's too bad Jon didn't know the history of Dianetics as found in the Campbell/Heinlien letters and Hubbard/Heinlein letters.

    All I am saying is it doesn't make any sense. Why would Hubbard kill a neighbor to make Nibs shut up? Why not just kill him and eliminate the problem?

    If you have the cojones to have someone wacked - why fuck around?
