Including what we found in Scientology before it became a cult
Vista

Thank you

This week marked something we’ve been looking forward to at this blog for a long time.

And it happened in a month when Scientology Inc’s PR machine claimed “growth more than ever in history”.

The real report was:

Church spokesperson Karin Pouw told The Hollywood Reporter that “more people have accessed our websites and come in to our Churches over the summer than ever in our history,” adding the media blitz has increased the amount of “people wanting to get accurate information about Scientology for themselves.”

Of course, since that’s the official position of Scientology Inc, you can be sure that the opposite is true.

The fact is that this month saw this site’s highest ever single-day page views.

Marty Rathbun recently did an analysis of Scientology Inc’s flaccid website hit trends here.

And note that Karin Pouw’s claims of increased interest have more to do with non-arrivals than arrivals. What we want to know, Karin, is how many first service starts occurred in the past months…totaled by week…so we can see the trend.

After all, if it’s increased and it’s highest ever, you should be able to show the stats.

Just like we did. We got our graph from our blog’s ISP.

So, Karin Pouw, you were telling the truth when you said that the media blitz has increased the amount of people wanting to get accurate information about Scientology for themselves.

That’s why an increased number of people came to this site.

To our loyal readers and new arrivals:

Thank you.

Congratulations.You’ll probably break that record again and again as time goes by and the church collapses.People who have had some wins with Scientology but can’t tolerate the insanity of the “official” church anymore will be looking for alternatives to continue their progress up the bridge.

This site as well as Marty’s never grows stale.New info almost daily with refreshing viewpoints on everything under the sun on the subject of Scientology makes this one of my favorite independent websites.

Take a bow,you’ve earned the record.

Awesome news and congratulations to you and David. This site, Scientology-Cult.com and Marty’s blog are my top sites that I check daily for the latest news on Independent Scientology. I especially enjoy this site for the unique blend of information and humor.

Wow! That’s an amazing number of visitors in these last few days! I wonder what happened? Do you know where the visitors are coming from or how they are finding your blog?

I’m really glad though, you have done a bang up job on this website and on your other one too! Love it!

Well, September 28 was the day we published our take on the “Tom Cruise distancing himself from Scientology?” story.

People are interested in the fallout from Miscavige’s mess-ups, and will be until he stops messing up.

And as we’ve seen, the only way he can stop messing up is to RESIGN as COB (a non-LRH post).
