I hate to tell you this, but psychology and psychiatry are nothing more than money making schemes themselves. Hell, they label everything a mental disorder to get you onto drugs. You're not shy anymore, you have "social anxiety disorder,"or worse, "anti-social disorder." You're not paranoid anymore,you're "paranoid schizophrenic," now. It's all a scam for money in my honest opinion.

Byrd, I think you're a smart guy, but that Operation Clambake site is garbage. Quotes are literally taken out of context, and made to sound bad.
If anyone here thinks they are evil, then you obviously don't understand them at all. Scientologists would give their last breath trying to help mankind, yet they are talked about like garbage. It's pathetic.
And some of these posts here are so blatantly ridiculous and untrue, I could probably poop my pants from uncontrollable laughter.
Any other good people you guys want to drag through the mud? How about Mother Teresa, she was probably evil too, I guess.

Yes precisely, if you attack Scientology, you're fair game for attack by lawyers, any action etc, but lawyers seem to do a lot.
In fact, he almost seems to be doing it himself.

my example of a girl who is obviously a spoiled brat and parties like she's 19 is depressed and gets prescriptions from doctors all the time. seems like this is the case for a lot of these situations. if instead she stopped hanging out with losers and doing "bad" things at night she wouldn't feel guilty and depressed all the time. but doctors avoid the real situation because they hear "i'm depressed all the time" and they hand out happy pills and that's that. a continuos cycle.
your story is the other extreme i guess.
