Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / The REAL story
« on: April 07, 2003, 01:04:00 PM »
For those who care, here's the deal -

Sometime in mid December, I personally took some documents to Leigh for her to copy. The arrangement was that they would be copied THAT NIGHT so I could bring them back home. However, since we were friends then, we spent a lot of time talking, she made a great dinner and we basically goofed off and didn't get the copies made. A few days passed, we needed the papers back for the bonfire since we had not made duplicates of them yet and I sent Leigh an email offering to pick them up, take them to a copy shop, and deliver a set of copies back to her. This is part of what I got as a response in an email from Leigh on Dec. 17th:

"I'm not part of your special seven-step society that has warm and fuzzy feelings about the program and shares everything so freely and lovingly EXCEPT their testimony or conversation with the likes of me.

Bill is just being a selfish, impatient prick. No
doubt, that attitude has served him well with you - but in the real world - it is highly unappealing.

Apparently, anything nice you do is counteracted by the prick you are married to.

You deal with seven-steppers, and I deal with REAL people with REAL feelings who live in the REAL world. The people I contact at least have the guts to tell me how they truly feel - they don't waste time insinuating things . . . because
they weren't brainwashed into avoiding their true feelings - or ignorant enough to spout off about what a great program it was after they take bong-hits and drop acid (and no, I'm not calling
YOU ignorant or a drug user) - I'm making a point about people we know.

If you'd like - I'd be glad to drive the paperwork over and SHOVE IT UP
BILL'S ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

At that point, I went to Leigh's home, and picked up the papers myself. When I looked through them, it was obvious that some of them were missing. Yes, Ginger - that's theft. Since Leigh had already made threats of physical violence we decided that allowing Leigh to "permanantly borrow" some papers was worth it in order to end the whole situation.

Leigh then began posting nasty messages about us on the Fornits board. I told Mike Sherman if she threatened us with violence again, I would call the police regarding the marijuana she reportedly was growing in her basement. It would appear that Leigh had reason to worry about that, because once Mike warned her of my statement, the hatemail and posts suddenly stopped. Looking back, perhaps I just should have taken the emails I received, gone to the police and pressed assault charges.

We hadn't heard one word from Leigh until she signed on with SafetyNet at the request of Mike Sherman. Then the attacks began all over again - completely unprovoked by myself or Bill. This was a private matter until Leigh, on behalf of SafetyNet, decided to prey upon Bill and I in an attempt to discredit ISAC.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / ISAC is NOT SafetyNet
« on: April 06, 2003, 07:12:00 AM »
ISAC is actually the spawn of SafetyNet, not Satan. ISAC was formed to protect SafetyNet board members who were afraid that exposing the Semblers would cost them their jobs.

About 2 months ago, when it became obvious to ISAC that SafetyNet wasn't able to live up to it's claims, ISAC made the decision to become a completely separate organization. Since then, SafetyNet has turned this matter into a personal vendetta, has acted in a manner that lacks professionalism, and continues the abuse they claim to be trying to prevent.

To make things perfectly clear to the survivors:

ISAC does not support nor endorse SafetyNet in any way. Our mission IS to prevent abuse, not sponsor it. Therefore, we will not be attending the treatment abuse conference.

ISAC believes in handling issues in a professional manner and I may not reply on the board to all comments regarding this post.

The organization that currently accredits Pathways has asked for statements about the program. You don't have to file any formal documents, just be willing to answer some questions. If you were in Pathways, please contact the survivors committee ASAP at

We need some info within the next day or two.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / VA Senator Allen wants information
« on: February 07, 2003, 04:08:00 PM »
Hey everyone!

  VA Senator George Allen has requested information on the Virginia Straights. I've gathered the documents from the survivors site, but I think some personal accounts from people who were in there would be a nice addition. Especially if you still live in Virginia.

If you're interested in telling the Senator what you think about Straight, the Semblers, and the programs that are still open, now's your chance. Send it to me, preferably as an MS Word or WordPerfect document. They will be mailed to the Senator on Monday.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Spouses Needed
« on: February 05, 2003, 08:35:00 PM »
The Survivors Committee needs spouses of survivors who are willing to volunteer their time. They would be assisting other spouses via telephone with the challenges of living with a program survivor. Please talk to your spouses/partners and if they are interested, visit this link and fill out the online form

Thanks a bunch!


Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / Volunteers Needed
« on: February 05, 2003, 12:16:00 AM »
The survivors committee needs phone volunteers. You would be responsible for receiving calls from and making calls to former clients who just need someone to talk to. They would probably be in
your home state, but not necessarily local and you may get calls at odd hours of the day. If you are interested, please visit this link and fill out the online form

Thanks a bunch!


Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / URGENT VA request
« on: February 03, 2003, 06:41:00 PM »
If anyone remembers a Jason Harris from Springfield and possibly Atlanta - late '80's - please call Craig Schneider (sp?) ASAP at 770-509-4098. Craig is a reporter for the Atlanta Journal Constitution and is trying to help Jason.

Thank you, Shelby

I would like for anyone who was in the Springfield warehouse in the Fall of 1985, around Thanksgiving, to contact me. I'm trying to pull together the details of an assault on a phaser by a staff member. Thanks in advance.

Straight, Inc. and Derivatives / DFAF dot COM...
« on: November 05, 2002, 04:00:00 PM »
Just thought I'd let y'all know- DFAF.COM (not org) is available for purchase. Holds some interesting possibilities ( and yes, potential problems ), but it's still a nice thought.
