i don't know if anyone here gives a poo, i've just been following their shenanigans for many many years and thought this was pretty interesting.

In an unprecedented effort to crack down on self-serving edits, the Wikipedia supreme court has banned contributions from all IP addresses owned or operated by the Church of Scientology and its associates.

Closing out the longest-running court case in Wikiland history, the site’s Arbitration Committee voted 10 to 0 (with one abstention) in favor of the move, which takes effect immediately.

for the most part they can't use the internet. upon joining they bring in their computers to get scientology reference software installed (that blocks their access to most sites.)

I'm still trying to figure out how Scientology is more outlandish than any other organized religion in terms of theology.

in terms of theology, they're not any different. in terms of practice...

R2-45 is a Scientology auditing process created by L. Ron Hubbard. The process of R2-45 specifically pertains to shooting the target with a Colt .45 pistol, causing the victim's "thetan" to leave the body (exteriorization).

that's just one little example of the hugely vast array of fuged up things they do. they're the worst religion currently active on the planet today, in my opinion. it's only by lack of popularity that they aren't more harmful than islam.
