    Wouldn't it be possible for OSA to take a gander at the petition for a new list of names of people to Fair Game?

    Doubt they can do much with names alone, thats all the petition shows. Then again I don't know much about how the OSA operate having never been 'in'. It would take a lot to track down a person over 4 countries through name alone I reckon.

    I'm thinking of those of us who are exes, who OSA will already be looking out for.

    Fair point, but still 1 name over 4 countries is a bit of a stretch, surely? Pardon my ignorance if you think I'm being flippant, maybe I am just underestimating the actual resources the OSA has. :confused2:

    No, I don't think you're being flippant at all. OSA seems to be able to get its dirty little hands on all kinds of info about people. Read around this board and if you're uncertain of that.

    Consider that any Scieno who was involved for any length of time and then leaves without giong through Cofs's own mind-bending leaving ritual gets declared a "suppressive" and can become "Fair Game" if they're seen to be speaking out publicly against the church. CofS has my name and address and contact details, they know who I work for and all kinds of other intimate details about me, so if my name should turn up on a petition to Downing Street against them, I'm sure they'd waste no time trying to discredit me and anyone else whose name they recognized from their former ranks.

    The only reason I feel moderately safe posting here is that I can remain anonymous.

    I can see your concern - darn, I have so much to learn about the $cios. I am trying to at the moment and I definately agree that theyre sinister, I didn't think they would have that much reach in the UK, then again looking at the hounding that John Sweeney took after that panorama episode even when he was back here is food for thought.

    You have given me a lot to think about and I see I still have a good bit to learn ;)

    It is possible to remain anonymous and still add your name to the petition. There is provision for that, although you are supposed to give your real name etc. to the Downing Street web people.

    I signed one of these a few months back, not a Scn one. I used my real name. But if I were to sign an anti-Scn one, even I would think twice about signing it openly. Great "church", huh?

    But it's rather neat getting an e-mail from "10 Downing Street". :)
