ThePetitor,hey. focus its activities better on critical issues that may adversely affect public trust and confidenceā€. In black and white and in plain English. So as you are fond of quoting HB, perhaps you should be the one saying wheels grinding slowly but grinding exceedingly small etc. Anyway, more than encouraging. Merry Christmas all..

Hi All, hoping everyone is in fine health. Just noticed that OSCR have their list of schools that have to change. Mostly, elitist "top" private schools that shouldn't have charity status anyway. Interestingly, I noted OSCR quote that they have issued directives to all and "they will be watching for backsliders." Coincidence that? Hmmm.... Not really a word I'd ap

Hi Folks, I hope you all are well. The little bit of radio-silence there didn't worry me at all. I hope nobody here thought that we gave up...'cause I know I haven't. Don't mind one iota if smc leadership think this is the case... So we are dismissed as a dead thread(/threat!) then? And are you the indicated example of our irrelevance, Cbarb? I haven't read these c

Happy New Year to you Rensil! Clive, how goes life? It's been ages. Did you just try to beat down some debatable examples with more debatable examples? A massive own goal! But you know you should not come here simply to disagree or "educate" any of us. To do that you need smc-style arrogance and total self-belief. (It looks like you can claim victimhood...whether you want to or n

How are we all? I just wanted to say, "See you all in the New Year!" And welcome Vinny...please do keep reading, you will see just how deep the rabbit-hole goes. :( Not good reading, but... Can I be a bit forward and just ask, are you a journo by any chance? Not that I have a problem with that, if so. (Some of my best friends are journos...haha.) Anyway, none of my business. I actua

Great post Cbarb. I do remember having the utmost respect for MT, mainly because I'd never met the woman. HB told of her great insight and the work she did for the church. Also, the "trickle-down effect" meant individual churches heard the same of her, so revering her as well. One year she came to Wiston and there were some tricky stairs in there. She was coming down; I was going

Merry Christmas all, though I would prefer your term, Cbarb; I just don't see it catching on. Anyway, as people play and wait for new stuff to charge, I have a little time to think. It's probably fair to say that most people have had their concerns about imbalances in the world. So many times I think this place, our civilisation, has lost it's chance. Like we've endangered ou

Happy Survivor, I can assure there is much sanity here (though I do not include myself!!) If I may presume to assume, (Cbarb?). The post you made may well get Clive sending you links to snopes again, but I totally agree with you about conspiracies, cover-ups, etc. And we do know the reality of things is not for us mere masses to be told. Amazing how parallel to smc. :) Happy Survivor, we ain&#

What a compelling read on the end of that link Cbarb. Interesting, if not downright creepy! "Delusions of grandeur" a common term on my school report.Hahaha, it must be a contagious. But it is definitely the trickled down message, not that I'm blaming smc for anything on my rapsheet.. Another enduring influence at that time though was the God-will-provide attitude, which is

Recent quietness?? I thought we were just giving rrmod a wee rest. Happy Survivor, nice to see you and in fine fettle. Censorship is one thing that schools have to deal with. If done it has to be justified. I wonder if they are protecting young minds. Ahhh, I think I am not being truthful. I wonder no such thing. I am deeply, gravely suspicious.

No need to waste your time explaining what a biblical metaphor is Clive. And Bingowings didn't, as far as I'm aware, actually cause any offence. My attempt was a subtle plea to you to just drop this thick-skin guff. smc leaders have had years to answer here and openly. You seem to be saying that those who have had the most heinous treatment by smc should just "not take offence&qu

Happy! Hello! I'm glad you feel free to post. And it sounds like your anti-phobia incentive will be doing some good for you. It was most likely a basic fight/flight/freeze reaction, after having been threatened, and now you've gained the upper hand, regarding perspective. Well done you and those who won't be cowed. Better watch though. haha, you'll be spotted and preached abo

Err, I doubt Jesus meant turn the other cheek constantly! Not that I was there but I don't believe he would advocate continuing to let people speak down to their flock. Nor probably for any of that flock to meekly accept abusive, controlling behaviour. And Clive, Bingowings was banned for rule-breaking, that's it. The fact that she was trying to be nasty to past victims of a screwed up

Clive, you say, let the nastiness be laid bare for all to see. Quite right and so it is. OK, some might say, "sticks and stones.." and perspectives on nastiness vary, but the tone and contempt is the nastiness, especially to those who know they were being directly addressed. Why should we have to have thick skins just to read childish (and nasty, derogatory and insulting) posts? Haven

Have to disagree Clive. As I think was explained, Bingowings was binned for rule-breaking, end of. Unless I am missing something no one else has been excluded and no censorship has occurred, Possibly there's a lot of paranoia afoot (doesn't mean they're not out to get you..) which results in people wanting reasonable answers regarding motives for posting. Of course I am not sug

Happy Survivor, the only mistake you have made is called freedom of speech. A Christian "sympathizer" has taken offence. I'm sure you didn't mean it personally. Either way, your number was passed on to a bully. If you have received a menacing call or a threat, it is an illegal act and I sincerely hope you have reported it. His Christian other half surely won't support him

Happy Survivor, You have to do as you see right, but effectively you are being bullied. Call the police and make them aware of this, please. It doesn't matter that they will deny it...it will be on record. And to that person who threatened you: Want my address??? Do ya really? Thought not you bullying scum. Wanna give out yours? Again, I think not. You are pathetic and delusional if you t

Hello Weary, and welcome, of course! It is good for balance that you offer other quotes (though we mostly are aware of these and have already given them great thought.) As for causing offence...well it happens, but we are adults and can work things out (often amicably!). Still, I think if you want to post here, perhaps some acknowledgement of cbarb's (and Corboy's...just saw that) ru

Happy Survivor...well put. Succinct and informative. I sympathize with your current feelings, though as the smc veil lifts, you can find it hard to see anything positive. I am a family outcast because one of these people who were " bad with drugs but saved by smc" (though that should be saved by Jesus and they weren't "bad" with drugs anyway).

Haha very much Chris19. I saw this site before and considered posting here that I had found "the manual" that smc leadership all seem to follow. I think maybe I was too stunned to see a funny side... But, yes! Indeed! So many traits make them ludicrously obvious...in hindsight. :) lol. Regards, Cornelius Dredd

Happy Survivor, thank-you for your input here. May you be at peace now and move on, strengthened by your own ability to see the obvious. I thoroughly agree mental illness is one explanation for the behaviour of the leadership. However,I would find it hard to sympathize in any way. I suppose you could say gg had no chance from the start being brought up as she was, but I'm sure she wasn'

But it's not about me or what I feel. It's only about stopping this evil regime. Which simply has to be done. Regards all, and happy days, Cornelius Dredd (Once Ifellaway).

Good news is they are cowardly and soon their corrupt, malicious behaviour will be in the past. You have been brave and proved your strength exceeds theirs. How that must sting for them.

RRModerator, undoubtedly you have made this decision due to some rule-breaking. Are you able to say why? It might be useful that any underhanded or manipulative stuff is publicized, as it further enhances how the org works. Just wondering... I, of course, defer to your best judgement.
