Looked over at old ESMB, and it says you limit those who can see your profile, so it's impossible to get a sense of your posting history.
I did say there were lots of reasons why people left.
There are also patterns, but it's fine if you disagree.
In any event, the link at the bottom of all...
It's an observation. There are no surveys of which I know.

In any event, here's the post:
There are people who have left Scientology because they feel it has violated the Auditor's Code, most often its first point, "Do not evaluate for the preclear," but other points also.
