    Are you meaning when I mentionned to Andy Nolch ( linking his videos on the chat board) To use the freezone forum ???

    There is a specific freezone section (forum) on ESMB for indie stuff...

    Although that has ever been suggested that you guys set a freezone you can celebrate Ron and your wins each friday, away of "entheta" and set your ideal "theta board"

    Depends on whether you are referring to a forum within ESMB here, or a forum out on the internet.

    On Facebook there are a rather large number of of such . . . if you go to Karen#1's "Outer Banks" you'll see a number of them listed in your face by Facebook in the side bar.
    here's three: Scientology Outside the Church - Scientolipedia
    International Free Scientologists
    Professional Independent Scientologists

    I question the actual independence of the indi sites. Were they truly independent they would have nothing to do with scientology whatsoever. I think they are better characterized as splinter groups, such as the Protestants, etc.

    And we know how thorny splinters can be...

    "Freezone" (not Free Zone, Capt Bill's cult), meant people doing Scn outside of the CofS. It is supposed to be "Standard Tech", not weird offshoots.

    The Independent movement, as far as I know, is/was much the same but thought they were above the Freezoners who'd been around for years.

    At some point, maybe after Marty Rathbun stopped auditing in the field, the two seem to have merged. I don't really keep up with this, so am open to correction.

    If I can get it together enough to do facebook...

    I was hoping for an open forum much like ESMB but dominated by those who have found significant value in Hubbard's work

    That is an interesting site. Geir has one some posting here and...

    actually is writing didn't quite capture me...

    As firmly as I contend with several posters I'm really closer to you than the Indies whereas the serious flaws of CoS are very VERY serious indeed
