    Hey, Gang!

    I'n the other David Gibbons, not the musician from Australia, but the guy who took care of the elevators at PAC Base in LA from 1979 to 1980. I will be posting my story once I get full posting privileges, and then you can see things from a Scn Peon's perspective.

    I have been lurking for a while, but it is time for me to join my fellow 'declarees' and speak up a bit about my observations. I hope that I can in this way make some amends for the harm I committed by supporting the church over the 30+ years I was involved.

    Bright Blessings,

    Hiya Dave, It's the other Dave Gibbons here. We exchanged a few emails back in the day, if you remember. I've told a few funny stories about misfiling in our respective files in the CofS.
    I'm happy to see you posting here, mate. :)
    All the best, Your Evil Twin.

    Indeed, Dave, I too remember the poor CF folk's inability to differentiate between Australia and the United States. of very many outpoints, and by no means the greatest.

    I'll be preparing the stuff I have to post - after that long story I will share the thoughts of a long-time SCN about Tech, Miscavage, LRH, and Faust. (That last is a teaser)

    Welcome David.

    So now I know why PAC had all those ups and downs.:biggrin:

    Was the PTS/sp course part of your elevator hat checksheet?

    Seriously, looking forward to your story. I also knew a Faust but he came from the Ford company I think. :confused2:

    Welcome David.
    Many of us have posted our stories and we just love to hear from others.
    It can often purge the chronic and debilitating unpleasant emotions.
