Ex-Scientologist Message Board is a message board that has been online since January 2007. It is owned and moderated by "Emma" in Australia. It attracts posters from all across the spectrum: ex-CofS public, staff and SO; Freezoners who were never in the CofS; critics who were never in Scn at all. And by and large, they all get along with each other very well.
