AOL Account Hijacked

It appears that my AOL email account has been hijacked. The last messages I sent out alerted folks to this new temporary blog spot. If you receive any comm from Sthtexlensman@aol.com sent after 10:30 a.m. Central Standard Time, it is not from me. I’ll post here when and if that account is restored. In the interim I can be reached at rathbunmark@yahoo.com. I’ll let you know the minute I find that it is compromised should it be. Please continue to pass around this new blog spot address.

    Church has hired some Wizz Kids it seems WWP is down too.

    It does not matter. It means they still want to play the Game. It just got more intresting.

    We thank the Church for playing the Game.

    Meow Cat Daddy. If WWP is down, does the hacking finger point to the famous “Co$ intelligence” unit (oxymoron?) hacking Marty (and the REST OF US because *our free speech* has been tampered with).

    Or is it mere coincidence that two greatest whisteblowers on the ™Brand @Scio were hacked the same morning?

    You don’t know your history too well do you DM?

    Big mistake attacking Marty – huge!

    Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, upon learning of the success of the December 7 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor:

    “I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve”.

    History really does repeat itself doesn’t it? What you just did was the classic Pearl Harbor mistake – you have awoken the sleeping giant of OT power.

    well, this is exactly right Elizabeth and Mickie.
    Let’s see the sleeping giant of OT power.

    And I personally would like to know names. Now this is not an “anonymous” drills. We are NOT Anons, here. The whole Mankind is at stake. We have arrived in an era where Man is again a no one compared to Globalizaton. Few guerillas can fight a war here and there but the picture the world is getting transmitted broadly is different. The war is fought against machines which are well wound up and fully armed. Robots do not but obey orders and shoot at whoever is ordered to be shot. Indiscriminately.

    We are the light on Earth, we have the best of people, we have such, such a huge knowledge.

    THE SLEEPING GIANT OF OTs.

    My name has been out since 2000. I didn’t give a damn about the DECLARE. In fact, something I have not said before, my declare came after I wrote on the internet about the translations, not when I blew, not when I said I am not going back. It was after the Internet. And I did the Internet knowing that it will get me a laurel wreath… aka suppressive person declare by the church of…mestology.

    So, it’s taking names… The sleeping giant has slept toooooo long. Things are getting crucial now. These guys have no clue…

    Why do you think Scientology needs to be shut down? I can tell you the reasons I used to think so: zealous and unquestioning obedience to an unaccountable leader, a preoccupation with money and bringing in members, an ends-justify-the-means mentality, requiring people to cut ties with their friends and family, an atmosphere of secrecy and us-versus-them; in short, the “cult-like” aspects of the Church of Scientology as it exists today. If these things are not fundamental to Scientology, but rather essential elements of “Miscavigism”, then I think Scientology has a future.

    I don’t believe that Christianity or Islam or Judaism or Hinduism or Buddhism is uniquely or absolutely true, but I don’t think any of them need to be shut down. I think Scientologists believe some things that are false, but as long as they aren’t hurting or misleading anyone, I’m more than happy to live with them as neighbors and friends.

    Marty,

    To avoid BS in the future I just suggest you use a very secure password (letters lower and upper case, numbers and lots of @%$@##%. Make it at least 8 characters or more). Less secure passwords can be guessed, but more likely they use a script program generate random number & letter combos that go through the options till it hits – the less complicated your PW the faster and easier it is for script kiddies to crack it.

    You also need to make up answers for your security questions that only you know. For instance a common security question is your mother’s maiden name, which can easily be found. Same goes for your first school and other info. that can be unearthed with a little research. Give answers that are factually incorrect and only you know so that others cannot bypass it with research.

    The social engineering route is the way many blogs and emails have been accessed. (It’s tech. not “hacking” just cracking a password or social engineering info. WordPress, aol, and FB are pretty secure, the security breeches usually come from the users end of things.)

    Just last year the anons cracked the PW of Sara Palin’s yahoo account with just a little social engineering and well, her stupidity. She made it way too easy for them. I would guess that certain forces alligned with the cult have been trying to access your blog and emails for awhile. What I can’t figure out is why they would deface the blog and let everyone know. Seems like they would just put a key logger trojan in your emails and the monitor everything you say or do from them on.

    BTW – have someone you know who is tech savy do a really good look see on your hard drive to make sure there are no key logger trojans (viruses) on your computer. If there is one, whoever put there, is getting constant reports to every keystroke you make on your computer. (It’s yet another way people get passwords btw. But even more importantly they would see know all the communication you send out.)

    Not trying to be bossy, just offering some good advice so you can protect yourself.

    Unity

    Wow, this isn’t the game I wanted to play. I just wanted to live and thrive with friends.

    It was really a shock to find Marty’s blog gone and I felt the reality again of what a huge vacuum *suck* it is not having free communication channels.

    So the “unChurch” of unScientology just put an Anon kid’s head on a pike by broadcasting to the media he got jail time for hacking the the Co$ website … while they break into people’s emails and hack Anon’s website and Marty’s blog and email.

    I have to cry at the sad state of oppressive criminality. Will the good guys *please* help USA citizens and people of the world out? We have zeroed in on the hateful scam that is being perpetrated under the name of “holiness” and “spirituality”.

    While insisting on morals for others, they commit heinous crimes.

    I really don’t get this and it’s really a sad sad day in the USA.

    My only consolation is that right this moment, more than one person is looking behind the PR smokescreen of do-good. Any life legacy of true philosophy that is Scientology — is baited on a fish hook.

    That’s why there are “mixed messages” and confusions. Both exist. The good…AND the criminal abuse.

    P. Henry // December 30, 2009 at 2:26 am | Reply

    Veritas, it’s just another day (same ole, same ole) on planet earth. The game is very, very old.

    There’s basically three primary hats in this game; slave, slave masters and finally there are those that never agree to put on the chains or order the chains to be put on. These are the freedom fighters who always work to free the slaves and eradicate the slave masters. This configuration of players is known as the Karpman Triangle (see wikipedia). And it cycles and cycles and cycles, ad nauseum, with a continuous display of hat changing amonst the players.

    But finally, after who knows how many trillions of mest years, this being comes along and decides to come up with something that will terminatedly break the seemingly never ending cycle. Well, long story short, he pulls it off. He figures out a way to unplug the cycle. He introduces the concept of “salvage” into the game. But, not just salvage the slave, and the slave master but salvage the freedom fighter too.

    Now here we are. What was originally set up to be the “good (white) hat” and instrument of salvafe i.e., CoS has now become the “bad (black) hat.” The “white hats” are now out where the “black hats” used to be. But, there is something very different about the game this time. This group of “white hats” have not fell into the trap of the Karpman Triangle These “white hats” , this time, aren’t out to free the slaves from the slave master. No, this time, ther are intent on bringing an end to the game so that, finally, a better game can be played. A game like that which you mentioned veritas. A game where we can live and thrive with friends. A game where there are no slaves or slave masters and no need for freedom fighters.

    At this point, what boggles my mind is how the “black hats” were able to successfully usurp the instrument of salvage. And, for me, these past few weeks have been a real moment of waking up to realize that this salvage game, I have been so fond of, was not any where near as far along as I had been thinking it was.

    Me thinks veritas, that we had best be on our toes and sleep with one eye open for a while longer.

    I hear this woman saying it’s a sad day, a sad sad day in the USA and I hear also my wife when I read to her a previous post of mine about mankind’s future being at stake, and she is saying: “oh you take it too seriously”.

    So I am with the good guys and what am I doing? For 10 years now. I have 2 kids I am trying to give an education, a stupid, fucked up education in the wog world, I am alone as a reg in my business of publishing, fighting with merchants and getting them to pay for ads and a fashion mag that I am publishing with my wife, we are getting exhausted between family and work for 10 years now after our declares…

    I am not blaming anyone for this life… I have my children despite what DM wished me and ALL Sea Org not to have, I have my mag it’s called Theta MAG (I am proud about it, go have a look, though it’s all Greek to you guys, ha ha, but there are nice fashion pictures there, just for a change, ha ha,

    http://fashionthetamag.blogspot.com

    and now once again I am close back to my universal brothers, dumped or in any case living HERE on Earth in this game/war (you name it, now)

    and I am reading Veritas saying it’s a sad sad day in the USA.

    And where are the good guys? I tell you where WE all the good guys are! We are all at home and the war is going on.

    If we don’t take our posts on an org board guys, that’s it. It’s just not going to work, sorry.

    We have to come down to Action, Tone Level 20 on the Tone Scale. This is optimum randomity. We cannot be in cloud 9 and have Veritas here calling the good guys. DOOOOOOOO YOUUUUUUU HEEEARRR me?

    So, what is the BIG missing thing, here. What is the missing DATUM here?

    I want to start a discussion on this, I believe the big missing datum here is the ORG BOARD. Maybe it’s something else, a bigger, even more basic thing, which I need help to locate. Maybe it’s just INTENTION, maybe, maybe, Let’s open up a discussion on this and I am not talking anything about the mestology church, I am talking about Mankind, a better world, better education, people who know who they are, what is life and the MEST Universe…

    So many good things we can do, TOGETHER not just alone, it’s not done as one(s), it’s done as hundreds and thousands and millions. This is LRH’s dream and this has been the dream of Veritas.

    We can give it to her, if we move… on to the next step.

    Cheers!!

    WWP=Why we protest which was in fact down for some time today. Unlike what Jim says, WWP is not mental mayhem, but expression without censorship. In such an environment, you can have stupidity, but you can also have courage, and bravery and brilliance.

    This might be unfamiliar to those used to tight control of what they are allowed to think and seem “low on the tone scale”. But it is full of people who have been fighting this battle on the front lines longer than most of the people here. It is because of these people, whom Jim believes are the “lowest reaches of the tone scale”, that Jim is even free to say what he says. It is because of the cover provided by Anonymous and the “safety in numbers” that any media even listens to anything that Marty says. WWP and Anonymous has made greater criticism possible.

    Jim, in his deep dissection of WWP, has apparently missed all the work that WWP and Anons have done to help the cause of freedom for Scientologists and to help bring the organization to justice.

    Anonkatie, hi, I see that a lot of anons can differentiate between mestology and Scientology, which is good.

    We here, if I may speak on behalf of those who have worked in the Sea Org at least and in Scientology organizations are very much in agreement with certain policies and principles that others aren’t, have even a huge reality as to things which have to do with the spirit and even a very codified and scientific language and terminology which helps us communicate and understand much better than anyone else the concepts we want to convey.

    So, we are done with attacks on scientology. Those are attacks on mestology.

    Me personally, I am interested now in getting on with scientology and helping people with it. Not interested into getting in other fights.

    And we don’t owe to anyone our freedom to speak, especially to Anons.

    No. Sorry. No. that you did a job yes, but it was so turbulent, the message you got across was STOP ALL SCIENTOLOGY. It was confused. Not our responsibility. Civilized beings can communicate better and this is what we mean by not high tones.

    I can agree the masks might be needed for you guys. But you managed to mask your whole communications under an ugly face. Not good PR, good for war, OK.

    Now, for us this war is ending, we are gaining our people back and to that you may want to help us.

    But this blog here, we have a certain agreement and common language and reality and affinity, that NOTHING can crash our understanding of what we are about to do.

    If those 11 books include Self Analysis and Handbook for Preclears, I recommend you follow through on the reading and DO those processes. You will need auditing to truly be ‘informed’. I recommend you get some from a competent auditor in addition to SA and HFP. Study, training and such are 50% of this experience, add in use on another as part of that and the other critical 50% is actual, real, case changing auditing.

    Then he must have one encryption key himself and the other should be with one of his friends. In that server he should have his personal email account and his blog which BTW is now very important.

    Good points on having and studying these materials. Factually, releasing this data is something LRH wanted decades ago. It will be great to have the materials finally available. Unfortunately, as is DM’s way, he’ll likely invalidate the entirety of Scientologists in his release, run a can’t have on the materials (the cost) and generally mar what is after all a good thing.

    I’m looking forward to the material available. One more piece of the data that is in the end, the undoing of all this aberration and that includes DM’s ossified case…well, that one may take a bit longer. I wonder who he can twin with…

    Marty, You are truly a very strong thetan and a man of courage. Thank you for getting this blog up and running!! :)

    I can not stop laughing at DM and his stupid tricks. What an idiot he is! What is he thinking? I don’t think he can even sleep at night without have a nightmare that WE are bringing him down sooner than he think! :)

    Very glad to find you, Marty. For some reason I become really concerned that those who have issues with you will somehow silence your voice, and it’s one that’s personally taught me a lot.

    If you find yourself having issues with WordPress.com for hacking and assistance in stopping the hacking, consider finding a really strong ISP and building it in WordPress, where you can plugin several extra security feature. Or another option I highly recommend is Posterous, where you can post to the blog simply with an email.

    Lemme know if you need any help in any way. I know a good ISP and I do this stuff for a living.

    Redneck Thetan and all,

    First of all, I am trying to help, I want to clear that up. Today, 1st of the year, I am so happy, I didn’t do almost nothing else, except take my family out for a walk, than study everybodie’s posts on the blog.

    So, I am happy this year begings with a lot of exchange of data and with high level of agreement. So you are a pro in this. This is great.

    All I wanted to add up here and in other replies or posts about security is that I can donate 50 euro for the cause of protecting the site. And I don’t want to be given any title like Patron Internitorius LOL,

    it’s just that I feel this is the use of the org board. Getting all the vectors aligned.

    That we have that engram now does not mean we cannot be sane again. Sanity is: there is a danger, let’s apply the formula and handle it.

    I was just told that another Independent’s declaration on the Internet got nuked. That is NOTSAWARE. He just told me.

    I am an admin person obviously. I will help run out the engram of TOO MUCH ORGANIZATION for TOO MUCH MONEY for TOO MUCH SLAVERY.

    instead I will work with you guys, for GOOD ORG BOARDing, FOR FLOWS AND RESULTS TO OCCUR.

    I reckon you are at least right, it may be double. Since I know of 5 in my immediate vicinity who like you and I will not pay it, though we’d love to have the material. To this add the various Scientologist who are now broke due to Church practices and have no more credit and can not come up with any more money. Yeah, income will dwindle fast

    I keep a fairly close eye on all the sites associated with the independant movement and Marty’s is the most important. Yes, the independant movement is attacking the church of scientology, as are others (such as WWP etc). The difference is in the intention behind the attack. Whereas some have seen wrong and allowed themselves to be consumed by hate and a desire to destroy, the independant movement has seen wrong and is demanding reform. The intention is what seperates the independant movement from past attackers of the CofS. What is especially important is that by naming names and giving specific instances and who was responsible, the independant movement is allowing many to see a deeper dimension to Scientology and by this Marty is slowly aligning forces towards the goal of a reformed scientology. The fact that the blog is forwarding this goal, the fact that it is well moderated, allowing for a real interchange of ideas on the subject of reform, while gently restraining those who are still enraged, makes this blog very valuable. This blog will continue to be an OSA top priority and as long as DM holds power, attacks on this blog will always come first. I also recommend that this blog be set up on an owned domain and placed on a paid hosting and given the same kind of protection that scientology-cult has. The important facts are out now. If there is anything to add, it will just be further confirmation of what is already known. It is now a matter of making the facts known in a way that members of the religion can understand and organizing enough people with enough pull to do something about it. The government will not handle this, nor will the police. Anyone who has ever been involved in a court case should be able to understand that that is not the place to find actual justice. Attacks on the church will not succeed. Its membership will draw in and close ranks. What will succeed is to gently enlighten existing membership on the need for reform, done with documented and bare facts presented without sensationalism or hate. Most followers are aware that something is wrong. For most followers they are there because they liked the philosophy in the first place. So its pointless to attack the philosophy. They must be shown the neded for specific reform. Scientology philosophy will never disappear. But an abusive church management structure can be forced to reform, history has show that over and over. If education is done in such a way that followers can understand and accept it, then eventually that will reach a kind of “critical mass” and reforms will take place (most important being removal of DM). Right now there is some “damage control” being done with small improvements being made to try and cover over the worst sores. So the monster is starting to dance our tune, abliet very reluctantly and very slowly. If the movement continues, eventually the reform will gather momentum and become unstoppable. It will work if enough people can understand that only through gentle education can reform be accomplished. IMHO the two most important websites from here on out are this blog and http://www.rediscoveringscientology.com. (Though I have to say that leaving Scientology always comes up with great and current zingers that are a pleasure to read). And IMHO this blog needs to get its armor plating on, because the better we do the worse this will get.

    I agree completely with this analysis. Perhaps it is time to revisit the CODES of Scientology, in particular the CODE of a Scientologist.

    Definition of code: any system or collection of rules and regulations: a gentleman’s code of behavior.

    The Code of a Scientologist has been ignored and invalidated by the C of S. If you look over this Code it becomes apparent that just about everything that is being protested by the Independents is a violation of one or more of the clauses of the Code of a Scientologist.

    If this Code is not stressed as the overarching principles from which to interpret the materials of Scientology, we all end up in the soup. And I don’t just mean Scientologists, I mean everyone that is touched by the very real impact of Scientology.

    Here is a lnk to the Code of a Scientologist:

    Most of the info is available at ESMB and WWP and St Pete Times articles and http://www.scientology-cult.com/ Quite a few of your questions are asking for opinions or estimates which really doesn’t have anything to do with Independents.

    Suggest you get Marc Headley’s book Blown For Good to get a flavor of “culture”, he does describe it well.

    Jim Logan // December 30, 2009 at 3:34 pm | Reply

    AnonKatie,
    There are two posts here that address important ideas that I share with regard to the Why We Protesters. That’s the one by P Henry on games/characters and the one by Jean Paul. I’ve been told several times now on this blog that my ability to be there and communicate is somehow related to ‘Anonymous’ and claimed (by you in this case) accomplishments. I will respond to this again here: no, Anonymous has nothing to do with my ability to be, hold a position and two terminals and generate power. I have been, long before Anonymous ever found the starting line in these issues regarding the Church of Mestology.

    While a number of the Anon movement were cutting their teeth on Nintendo, I was a Sea Org member at the Int base holding a post and facing up to the suppression I was becoming aware of. I was declared and expelled by David Miscavige. He broke up my marriage. He assigned me to ‘oblivion’ never to get the OT levels.

    While various Anons graduated from Nintendo to the the internet, I studied philosophy, basic science, religion, and the bulk of the material of Dianetics and Scientology. I also followed the development of the internet.

    Presently, while the ‘cats’ at the Anon forums play with words, denigrate random targets, including each other, post ‘goatse’s’ and make attempts at being ‘V’, I am moving on the OT levels, studying daily and participating in the factual running out of 3D engrams (you’ll have to actually study the data on these to gain some rudimentary understanding. Start with The Original Thesis and then up the line in late 50 early 51 are the articles on ‘Group Dianetics’. If you can read these you’ll get some idea of what I’m referring to).

    Up until recently, I had not taken the hour to look up ‘Anonymous’ and trace it back to 4chan, and so on, so I was somewhat general in my understanding. Having now looked up various items, watched the ominous videos, read page after page of forum chat, and re-read emails sent to me by several Anonymous, I have a better grasp of the ‘movement’.

    I see there ARE sincere individuals that would fall under the ‘freedom fighters’ of P Henry’s posting. These are after my own heart, should I choose to assume that character. I also see there are the post pubescent, young adult ‘too much pop and video games’ with nothing better to do than anonymously spew venom, denigration, pal around on the cutesy pie flipping of letters and poor neologisms, and overall make me wonder if there were only more Super Nannies, would these miscreants hold some productive place in the culture?

    I also see that the idea of ‘V’, the refusal to be submissive slaves, the refusal to submit to a ‘Chancellor’ and state that regulates every movement, thought and action of a society, is a very innate and valuable concept and that many members of Anonymous continue to create on this line and can and do effect positive action in the world around them. Kudos to those individuals.

    There, now you have something to chat about. A little ‘nip’ so to speak.

    Jean Paul; Your posting has dialed in on the precise handling that will begin to get us what we want. We need to produce the “gentle” handling and get that monster to dance even more lively to our tune.

    All of us on this blog have a chance here to be involved in an actual movement to start the strangle hold on DM. We all need to find and enlighten at least 3 Mestology Followers this week, have them read Marty’s 31 points so that they get the picture and then understand what it is that they are feeling that isn’t quite right. We need to make this a weekly campaign and actually work to raise this stat on a weekly basis.

    I know, I know, I am going to get a lot of feedback from those who are spectators on how dare I use admin tech to product-officer them and so forth, but understand we need to do SOMETHING as a team and this is one thing we can actually do. What say?

    Lesson on WWP – it sprung from 4chan which sprung from SomethingAwful. SomethingAwful’s “Debate & Discussion” forum would impress all of you, I promise. However, 4chan branched off from SA as an image board and has gone through many evolutions, but it is still just a image board on the japanese model.

    One thing you must have to read WWP is a sense of humor, the blacker the better. Scienotologist are known for being a overly serious bunch, particularly with LRH’s rules on “jokers & degraders” I’ve always thought that’s why exs and currents sometimes find WWP so disturbing – their refusal to be serious and insistence on being wise asses. Everyone knows authority figures hate wise-asses, and WWP is a forum full of them.

    It’s obviously not for everyone and I think older people particularly have trouble with it because the humor is not of their liking or understanding. I assure you anyone under 35 gets it. (Many people over 35 to but they are fewer and far between)

    The great thing about freedom is no one is forced to read it. If you don’t like just stay away – everyone is happy that way.

    Jim Logan, you may want to look down your nose on the Nintendo generation kids, while you were a Sea Orger at the time, but guess who’s taking over the world now and running the internet and all it’s venues: The Nintendo Generation. Sea Orgers are still just suffering under an abusive system.

    UM,
    I’m afraid the Nintendo generation isn’t anything new for me. Keep in mind I’m a Scientologist. I’m very familiar with pictures, facsimiles and the virtual reality. I’m also familiar with actuality. That’s a different look.

    Again with the megalomania of ‘taking over the world and running the internet and all it’s (sic) venues’. FFS, (my own acronym, For F…’s Sake), ‘we are everywhere’ isn’t reality OR actuality.

    As for ‘wise-asses’ well, Marty is right, I’ve been generous. So far.

    Lastly, unless you recognize this persiflage, I’m having fun. And I’m VERY old. More ‘nip’ for you here putty tat.

    Hi Unity…

    “Scienotologist are known for being a overly serious bunch,…”

    Obviously, you had not yet met ME :D I’m a joker and upgrader.

    Then again, I don’t like to be identified with generalities, not even gender, race and especially not by practices.

    Jesus would have never condoned the Vatican Inquisition, and yet those people claimed to love the guy. Go figure. (So even though I received my first holy communion, please don’t call me Catholic. And even though I utilize standard Scientology, please don’t call me a Scientologist). Especially since the word has so many variable. Better to ascibe it to DOING rathering than what I is. :)

    That said, …it could be a matter of mere semantics, but I personally find a huge difference between “serious” and “solid”. I have seen a lot of people get “self righteous” and “condescending”. LIke, you know, a person can take partying very serious but that makes for some serious fun.:)

    Hey BTW I hope our discussion about philosophers wasn’t hacked to oblivion. You were last singing the praises of Kant (if I recall right?)

    Jim (and others). What would you give as advice to someone like me who had a very basic encounter withe the Church (a few tapes, the Comm Course, PTS/SP Course, a few hours – powerful tho, so I know this stuff works) of auditing, and nothing else on that side, but a rather bruising encounter with OSA much later on when I began to look at the church for my local paper (and I acknowledge now that I was coming at things from the wrong angle…)

    What should I read first? Self-analysis? Where should I go? There seems to be a lot of options on the Freezone of varying degrees of merit. I looked into Gerbode’s group – interesting but these days increasingly geared towards mental health profesionals, not the likes of me.

    Dave, it would be hard to find something better for you to do than Self Analysis. The text is excellent introductory reading and the lists will change the way you think about yourself. Half an hour a day is all it will take. There was a guy at Int who worked in the Finance Office who supposedly had been doing SA Lists on himself for decades, every night when he went home. This guy was in his 70s and still running around like a spring chicken. Good luck with it. Post your wins on rediscoveringscientology.com.

    Jim Logan // December 31, 2009 at 3:59 pm | Reply

    Dave,
    I’d do what Joe suggests. I have a friend who years ago would go to the public library and he and a buddy would audit stuff they read in the books. They’d never heard of a Church of Scientology. There they were, in a quiet corner, running Opening Procedure by Duplication.

    My suggestion is to find a friend and do SA lists with each other. Get a copy of Handbook for Preclears and do the same.

    As to the various and sundry off-shoots, such as you mentioned, I’d stick to the ‘real sh..’. That’s LRH’s stuff. I’d also go to a website entitled the International Freezone Association if you’re looking for ‘freezone’ stuff. That association espouses straight LRH, no off-beat chasers. If you come across guys that are in any way saying, ‘well, we agree with Mr. Hubbard, except…’ go to someone else. That’s my advice.

    I’ll tell you what. If you have any questions about the validity of what you find, write me. AND, you are beginning an adventure, treat it as such. May you never be the same.

    Many thanks for your advice. Just went to ABEBooks and bought brand new SA and HFP for £8.12(postage included!). That means not a penny in the pocket of DM. Will keep you informed of my progress. I’m excitied by the thought of coming back onstream – I never thought it would be possible.

    Self Analysis, is a good place to start.

    You can also run the lists on yourself. They’re a lot of fun.

    Just do ‘em the way Ron tells you how to do it.

    It’s kinda like being audited by the Ol’man himself.

    If you have any difficulty I’m sure there are plenty of people on this board more than willing to help. Including myself.

    Good luck :)
