I joined your computer org, I found that most of the people there did not know there shit. They spent all of their money on making LRH's office look really good, whilst the rest of the org eats rice and beans because they don't have nough money for food. Even when I was a member for the org, and I was informed it was my responsibility to ensure that all of the computer were clean and in good condition the other org's couldnt maintain the expensive computer equipment they had purchased nor were they given the training to do so. Auditing is shit, nothing worse than some guy telling you you arre lying because his little polygraph tells him so. I left on long term leave to go back to Australia and settle my debts, I kept in constant contact with my org and when I arrived back in LA, they wanted nothing to do with me, they did however want to take my passport from me for safe keeping and not give it back. They took my return ticket away from me and it took a visit to the Australian Consulate and the Consulate General calling the head of the little white police force that you have there before they returned all of my possesions and allowed me to leave. The consulate general threatened to cancel all religious visa's to Australia, and bounce the ones already in Australia out if they did not comply, they had their tail between their legs when they did.
