Archive Message - 1995

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

My e-mail account and Web page have been suspended due to threats of legal action against the University of Bristol by representatives of Scientology. The complaint is specifically about my posting copyrighted material to alt.religion.scientology. I believe that what I was doing was within my rights, but I will now have to stop doing so in order to protect my system operators. I have told the university that I will do anything necessary to save them from further harassment. This will include taking copyrighted material off my Web page as well as toning down my posts to a.r.s. I have taken care in my postings to make sure that Scientology do not have a leg to stand on legally, but the University does not want any involvement in legal action and I do not want to put the Web service at risk. I believe that Scientology has chosen this time to strike at its perceived enemies in the UK. In the last few days, a friend of mine has been visited by a PI who works for the Scientologist's law firm. Another has been sent a letter warning him "not to get any ideas". I hope to be back on the Internet in a few days, but am completely unable to say when. I suppose this means that I am at last a bona fide SP. -- +---------------------------------------+ | Reverend Modemac ( | +-----------+ First Online Church of "Bob" +----------+ | "There is no black and white."
