But of course.
Roland has spoken of this: they think they're taking him out when they get him into conversation, but when they do get into conversation he gives them nothing but Xemu, Xemu, Xemu. Such that they will NOT forget it.
If the drone limpets onto you, be sure to give it a good whack of memetic poison.
- Tell it that talking to you for ten minutes will deprogram it, because we deprogram people with just words now; and ask it if it chooses to continue talking to you.
- Ask it if it's gotten good results from Scientology; when it says 'yes I have', talk about the abuses of the organisation, then point out that it should be possible to do Scientology and get something out of it without an abusive organisation. Then give it a Pilot leaflet.
- In extreme cases, memorise the first part of OT III and recite a sentence of it between each sentence of conversation. (Save NOTS 34 for a higher-up.)
- Lisa McPherson. "So tell me: what do you think would happen to you if you tried to leave staff? Would they declare you insane and lock you away?"
Other ideas welcome.
Ted Mayett gives are pretty impressive clue: his clams leave and arrive by the back door. It must be horrible to belong to a "religion" so widely distrusted and disliked that one has to avoid any public appearance of any ties to it.
When I meet 'em in public and they act up, I raise one hand in the air, point to the clam, and announce (in my best carnival barker voice), "See the scientologist! Come see a real live Scientologist! One of the last example of a vanishing scam! Come see 'em before they run off and hide! Come see the Scientologist!" And they do leave, sometimes literally running away. They're so ashamed to be associated with the "$cientology Religion!" I might as well be exposing a thief or a burglar -- which they've also been accused and convicted of.
