  1. Courageous! Production stats publicly displayed. The org can’t confront posting theirs and when they do it is always with a PR twist of truth by a carefully trained contortionist, sorry I meant org PR. As if we’ve never even heard of data eval tech. This ain’t kindergarten. How I long for the day when the org applies the tech to itself and gets honest and straight. Dream on Savanna, dream on. Well done BIC!

  2. This is stunning!
    And to think we suppressives are not supposed to flourish and prosper!

    This blog has helped so many people to get informed, and have their say. Including me and my family. Through it, I have been able to get Backincomm with many old friends and associates (or partners in crime, as the case may be.)
    I especially love the way it has allowed me to get in comm with those previously labelled SP by the church, as my family and I have been. I find that with the blinkers off, I can talk to these people and find out more about them, get to know them a bit better, and see that they are not scary. So many of them have simply gotten on with their lives despite the church’s efforts, and continued to survive and usually do good things.
    Of particular interest is how many SP’s out there are still practicing Scientology to the betterment of others. There are some caring and helpful people out there, who simply want to apply whichever LRH tech they find workable, and help someone out.

    Well done, BIC! I am grateful. May you go from strength to strength!

    • Don’t take me wrong, but should there not come a time when one stops using terms like SP? I find it as derogatory as ‘wog’. Once you’ve left RCS its ethics actions are no longer applicable. How can you ‘declare’ someone that no longer abides by your codes, any more than you can try control who they socialise or mix with outside its walls of RCS. I understand many people wear the SP label as a badge of honour and quite rightly – but it’s a term I refuse to use as it’s so ridiculous. People are expelled – that’s all they can do, and who gives a crap about that? Even when I was still a KA drinker and heard of people being ‘declared’ I never for a moment associated that action with having the anti-social characteristics – which none of us do.

      • Hey Sean, Let’s get down and real ‘dirty’ about this whole ‘S,P.’ thing.

        The biggest ‘cog’, you could ever treat yourself to, my friend (for free!), is to just quit the whole ‘mind-control’ mechanism, of “taking things TOO seriously”.

        if one realizes, that by merely ‘agreeing’, to take something ‘seriously’, one effectively (often unwittingly) is permitting that ‘something’ to take up valuable space in one’s head. (Rent- FREE, nogal!!)

        I have found a really effective tool for dealing with ‘that’ and in so doing, can turn one’s life around 180 degrees! 🙂

        Seriousness = Inflow = Mass = Acceptance = Introversion = Lose!

        Laughter = Outflow = Lightness = Rejection = Extroversion = Win!

  3. There has been many a moment of
    pure pleasure and absolute fascination (sprinkled with outrage at the church) that has happened right here in this blog! All thanks to
    BIC team. A very warm and hearty salute to you all!

    And a big thank you, guys at BIC, for providing us with your great site! So even on Alexa, you rank first in comparison to the other Scientology sites (not third) in Africa.

  5. Congratulations to all concerned. You ARE providing an invaluable service, not only of informing people of the truth, but also in curtailing the abuses within the church. Your readership and stats are proof of this.

    You are most welcome into the fraternity known as “The small handful of unemployed bitter defrocked apostates on the fringes of the internet.”

    And never forget. If we are the “small handful on the fringes,” the cofs is the barely breathing lifeless body circling out there at the edge of the known universe…. 🙂

    Keep up the great work.

  6. It may have taken a horrible situation, the declaration of the Eighteen, to get this blog going, but once it did, it became an incredible asset. And it’s become an asset to everyone in the community, not only in South Africa, but worldwide (as you noted with your entry). You may have thought at the beginning that your audience would be limited, but it isn’t. Exes, Indies, Under-the-Radars, and Never-Ins have all praised this blog for its outstanding articles and terrific coverage of a scene that doesn’t get very much exposure. When Mike Rinder, the Bunkerites, and the gang at WWP agree on something, like they have with this blog and its worth, you’ve got something special.

    As a Never-In Anti, I love this place and I’m a regular reader (and occasional commenter). It’s thought-provoking, entertaining, incredibly informative (I don’t think we would have found out about Bulawayo Ideal Whorehouse anywhere else), and even acts as a sort of neutral ground for different elements where we can find points of commonality rather than difference. I know for a fact that your efforts are appreciated.

    The best thing that I can say is that I hope this blog isn’t needed for very much longer, and that everyone separated by the fanatics in RCS can be back in comm.

  7. VWD to ScnAfrica and the BIC Team! Feels wonderful to be associated with the great people on this blog, and wonderful to be a part of this great team!

  8. As an added bonus I cant help but ponder as to how much OSA and other church trolls with sweaty, fearful foot -fingers contributed to our blogs stats!! 😉 😉 😉

    The hours spent fretting on what may be said next and how much more exposure the poor chaps would be getting donnered with on this here blog! Mustve been awefull!

    Again, a VVWD!! People are freer today due to the impressive effort that has been on display these past months. There should be a mighty one year aniversary soon!
    How bout a “Say no to the IAS campaign” or a dodge the coffin in your local “Ideal Morgue” presentation to celebrate?

    I jest of course, but people are lighter and far less massey after thrashing out their stuff in this forum. Rock on!

  9. Thanks so much and here’s to many more informative days for this blog! We have family still in and still trapped in the vicious circle of lies and grinding oppression of the sea org. We need lots more comm to free all our friends and loved ones!

  10. Great stuff. When it comes to the anatomy of a trap one of the key elements is lack of choice and options. What this blog has undoubtedly achieved is to make people aware that they have options and choices – that’s a huge contribution to changing conditions for the better. .

  11. Outstanding. You must be costing OSA many hours of sleep 😉

    You are also helping many, many people re-learn all about similarities, differences and identities.

    Thank you very much.

  12. You have a great and valuable blog here which is very much appreciated, and I am pleased that so many people are interested. The information and documentation are complementing the other ‘fringe-blogs’ very well. The “Scientologists back in comm” is working, and not only Scientologists are interested in what is communicated and disclosed here.

    The suppression and censoring of communication and information and the inhumane disconnection the ‘Church of Scientology’ is practicing is more and more ceasing to be effective and the lies and hypocrisy are disclosed and …

    “All disturbance and chaos folds up in the teeth of truth. Don’t ever try to stop truth. It’s the only thing that can go through 16-inch armor plate.” (LRH)

    Your motto is very apt: “All men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.” (The Creed of the Church of Scientology)

    “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” (Article 19. – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights)

  13. Wow thank you so much for showing us the stats.

    We are truely an incredible group of rebels!
    EXPOSING Lies and promoting the TRUTH..
    The thought of The real SP’s reading the blog
    and driving them nuts as they start to loose control
    really puts a smile on my face!

    We are SPECIAL PEOPLE and their label is FALSE.
    To think their is no turning back – We are getting
    into comm and our mission is to support LRH and
    bring the ………….Down by uniting everyone who has
    woken Up – Honest beings have rights!

    We have the right to think – We have the right to
    communicate and we have the right to flourish and
    prosper and be in control of our own lives
    We have the right to disobey to this Slavery.

    We have the right to be Self-determined and to achieve
    the full state of OT!


  14. Very well done BIC crew. You are putting sanity into turbulent waters and you fuel the hope we all have of really truly being able to be back in communication with all our loved ones someday. Thank you for publishing the stats and for all your hard work. Some day the church will see that all us have something to do with all them and remember their vision of making sure all man is free. How they can go on not-issing the real situation is beyond me. Oh well …. I’m quiet sure you are putting some dents in the armor – keep it up.

  15. Jeez, what a wonderful accomplishment , guys.! Now THAT’s what proper use of LRH’s ARC triangle is all about. So “Getting Back In Comm”, INCREASES understanding, for those who are able to look away from the Miscavige Mind-Control Mechanisms of the CO$, just long enough to undo the ‘tenuous grip’ that has fixated their attention for too long, now!

    Fabulous to see how it is all unfolding, for the likes of thee ‘n me, to be truly FREE!
