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.

"Even though I wouldn't post it myself, unless it's something that's libelous or that violates AOL TOS then we don't censor subscribers." That was an AOL Board Host, talking to the San Jose Mercury News. The Air Force pilot who flew the rescue mission for Scott O'Grady, the pilot downed in Bosnia, had seen his e-mail account of the rescue posted to some other bulletin boards. He specifically requested the Board Host not to post it on AOL because it contained classified information. When it was posted there, the Board Host refused to delete it, and crowed to the press about AOL's strong stance on freedom-of-speech. /\ FTP site / \ ============================================================================== /__________\ Now featuring 400K year-end review!!!
