I was in a congregation where the PO was also the CO. A bit of n old curmudgeon. He's no longer with us.
I remember him getting rather sarcy (that's 'snarky' to my American cousins), about how the local jobos would descend on someone new entering the Kingdum He££ to try to get a 'study(tm)' and make 'placements(tm)' with the newbie. Not to mention 'love bombing'.
He said from the pratt-form that he didn't want the 'publishers(tm)' become 'vultures'.
I agreed with him.
By extension (typical jobo term), I noticed a certain preciousness about things...perhaps even a corrosive jealousy about things.
EG: If someone gave an 'experience(tm)' in a 'comment(tm)' about how they converted the universe and its dog (almost), to jobo-ism, (well not really, but you know, something more credible), the elder or whomever would ignore it, blank it as if they were envious. Not because they didn't believe it but because it didn't happen to them.
Anyone else seen this or have any comments?
