You first ask if Ron Newman has the right to have an Athena account. Ron is an ex-employee; accounts for users having no current MIT affiliation are deactivated on a periodic basis. Ron's account will be handled accordingly. You also call into question the accuracy of the information on the Church of Scientology published on Ron Newman's page. I can sympathize with your dismay at having information you don't agree with published on the Web. However, it has always been MIT's policy not to interfere with an individual's legal right to exercise freedom of speech. Allowing members of the MIT community to publish their opinions on the Web does not constitute an endorsement by MIT of the views of any individual. Ron Newman complies with standard practice reminding readers he is expressing his own opinion. See the top of his web page at: http://web.mit.edu/rnewman/www/scientology/home.html I hope this answers your concerns. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
