    Can we have suggestions on this list for adding your own story? We can ask ex-members to do Through the door or something, but that would not be applicable for people who were never in.

    But Leah wants us to announce it yesterday :eek:
    We did just add her nameā€¦

    Currently the only thing I can think of is to add this thread's link and ask people to post here using their real name with their disconnection story.
    No registration required, not closed like Facebook or some "submission form", not as Labyrinthian as Ortega's site comments, and doesn't expose their IP like directly editing the wiki page would.

    My little userstyle tells me there are 185 names listed so far. Please tell me you have 15+ names in parts 2 and 3 of S :D

    It means we will have to sort out trolls though. That will be tricky.

    /r/ edit for Kirk Radandt to shorten his entry to only "son disconnected". :)
  12. RightOn Member

    this is a slippery slope IMO
    Maybe you should ask people to submit their story with some sort of back up? Video perhaps? You would need a condom to check out their video links.
    I know many people may not want to do this, but how do you keep the list credible otherwise and out of the hands of trolls and OSA?
    Meh, I guess this is a stupid idea. Too early foe me to think straight.
    But then again, if some ARE willing to submit video, that would be very sweet!

    Ok, that was a double effort for today. I'll finish the first search tomorrow.

    I haven't checked if this brings us over 200, but I would guess it does.

    William Drummond is here at a conference. I'm having difficulty watching vids right now. Could someone please hear to find out if there is a story?

  28. Around minute 15:30 - begins story of being declared. Shelton even reached out to CoS to do steps A-E because he didn't want to be disconnected. "Because of their enforced disconnection policy, they took away basically the one person in my life that I just didn't really want to be disconnected from. And that was it. That was the straw that broke the camel's back."

    Notable is the fact that he wasn't willing to say who the person was back then (2014 Flag Down), because he was fresh out of the church at the time, only 8 months out.

    I saw him speak live on May 1 a few weeks ago with Jamie DeWolf, and he identified the person who was disconnected from him as his then-fiancee during his talk.

    There is video of that event, but it hasn't been posted anywhere that I can find.

    Good work Incred! There would be no list without you, thanks a lot. :)

    Only now I see this. Thanks!

    I've finished adding the names from the big list that already had "disconn" and am so far up to date with adding names mentioned in this thread, taking the total to 229 which I've added in the intro along with a link to the Big List :)
    Taking on the daunting task of googling every name on the Big List was all yours! I am in awe of you for that :)

    The website by Phil and Willie can solve this.

    Please add a text like:

    Add your own story

    What do you do if you would like to be included?

    You can can send your story to the StopScientologyDisconnection website (link).

    You can post there according to their rules. Anonymous or first name only if you like.

    However, to qualify for our list the following general rules apply:
    - you must use your real full first and full last name
    - only personal stories, so someone disconnected from you, or you disconnected from someone (or was forced to do so)
    Every now and then Anonymous will check if there are new stories on the site. If your story gets published you'll be added.

    Idea yes/no/meh?
