Hartley Patterson noted scientology critic posted an explanation for why these individually very valuable to the Church of Scientology documents are presented here in one single collection, below is a direct copy of his post:
Default Re: Wikileaks - Full OT Documents & More CCHR Leaks! Just to clear what this is:
The PDF file dates from 1999. It was compiled in the Freezone. It is not a manual, but a collection of the original OT and L levels and associated checksheets, notes etc.
These papers do NOT exist as a single item in the CoS, but as a series of levels taken (and paid for!) over a number of years. So far as I know they have all been available since the final bits were stolen in 1983.
This file is part of a collection that was widely distributed on CD within the Freezone. A copy has been on bittorrent since 2006. The collection includes Hubbard's books, critical books, Freezone books, Red and Green volumes, lots of stuff. http://www.mininova.org/tor/274971 If you're going to take a serious interest in Scientology, this is the one to get rather than download lots of smaller bits.
To be rude, I assume this collection was far too tl;dr for Anonymous and with the secret scriptures in a not obvious folder they weren't noticed.
Still, for the media to think they are getting a scoop on something can't be bad - more publicity!

These "levels" are sold after the persons have been trapped in non-secret levels to believe in other hallucinations like past lives incidents, some of them dated of trillions years before now - the term trillions being often used to date past lives by Hubbard himself. When they have been trained to the crude lie-detector and other "techniques" using forms of hypnosis, the scientologists are then led to pay more and more to learn such sci-fi ridicule stories as the XENU one and its sub-levels, where people do really start (I did!) to believe they are or they could be infested of thousands of past alien cooties. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 07:28, 6 April 2008 (UTC)
