It seems most here don't really believe in "OT powers" but some may say they did get something out of it. Most people out who have anything positive to say whatsoever will probably say whatever benefits they had are way overstated. But another important point about this case is that Fowler had already finished the level in the late 80's and probably was ok with it at that point, whatever that means but I doubt he was homicidal. But then the CofS realized it could have a major cash cow on it's hands if it made a mandatory retread of the level and changed the duration of it from 2-4 years to well over a decade for many with mandatory 6 month checks costing 10's of thousands each. Having to pay major bucks for something that is not only not beneficial and an extreme pain in the ass, as well as all of the additional donations being asked for continuously which bankrupted him, and the constant false warnings of imaginary enemies are probably what drove him over the edge. I know the feeling well and was not too far from that when I left and is one of the reasons I've followed this thing pretty closely. I mean it is a revolting sensation. They manage to get you believe that there is such a dire situation, that the only option you have is to destroy yourself. It is fucking BLEAK! But to answer you're question in regards to scios still in the CofS, I think this story could be dynamite to get people to start thinking again.
