Hitch, I hope someday you come back to the message board.

I was laughing my head off at the above comment.

I think I may know you too.

My first of many post to come. Fortune Baby! Ha! How hard was it for a young teenager to go knocking on doors during the great PAC-MAN campaign? How embarrassing was it to see my school mates open the door and me standing there with an older YMD trying to convince them about the true law? Not to mention this was in the 70's-80's and I was a young half Asian(WWII still fresh, Vietnam, & the Koren War...etc). Not only persecuted for my ancestry, but now my belief in the "True Law". I held my head up high. Took it on the chin. I'll get the last laugh! I'm building fortune for my future! My leaders told me I was making such wonderful causes for my future. They all said when I'm in my 30'and 40's I'll be reaping great benefits! ........anybody hear those crickets? I've been away for some time now, but just now getting around to investigating my feelings. I always thought the great Ikeda was making money off of the members, but had no idea how much money. My goodness. What a crook. My poor mom still gives all she can every time the yearly donations come around.

Hey there fellow fortune baby.

My folks joined in 1970, so I was raised in it.

Never had any of my significant prayers answered.

Did Drill Dance, performed all over the USA, building fortune, so they said.

We were lied to.

Ikeda is a rich, scumbag con artist.

I want what I never had. My youth was spent in the Junior Pioneers, then the Brass Band, the Gymnastics, Toban, YMD, District meetings, Chapter meetings,HQ meetings and countless daimoku tosos & Kosen Rufu Gongyos. I went to Dallas, New York, L.A. and Chicago on those darn buses. My parents held district and chapter meetings at our house with all the windows open so everyone in the neighborhood could hear us chanting. My dad would ring the bell so loud. I went through so much ridicule from the neighborhood kids. They would ride their bikes in front of our house and make fun of me. I left for the Army a few years into college and after several years I returned and some of my old class mates were like, you're that guy, the Buddhist? right? I thought to myself "Wow! that's what I'm remembered as?". Not the quarterback, the geek in the chess club or the guy on the baseball team(normal). I was the Buddhist(ad-normal).

No! That up bringing didn't effect my future at all. I wasn't judged, passed up, held back or suffer any self confidence issues. I felt like I was a reject. Did I come out OK in the end? Sure, I ended up OK. I do wonder how I would have turned out if I wasn't brainwashed all those years. Talk about making a bad cause..... Shame on you Ikeda. What? it doesn't work that way for you, you wise and all knowing narcissist.

Sorry for the rant.
Still waiting to cash in those good causes I made. Oh, I'm not doing it right. I must need guidance. Maybe a home visitation would help.

I know, with all those causes,you should be living the dream right?

Damn them.

Ikeda is a mastermind of a con artist.

I've been telling everyone I know about this horrible cult.

Blasted it out on Twitter, in real life, on Reddit.

Speaking of Reddit, there is a sub there for ex members.


I have found it a great support system.

Hey, y'all! That's right, I'm *still* taiten and proud - "No longer advancing in the wrong direction!" When this board went off line in early 2013, a couple of people I'd met here and I created our own reddit site - Drusilla linked to it, but here it is again: []

...and you're all *invited!* Please feel free to stop on by and see what's going on!
