The reasons for requesting its > removal are: (1) It was started with a forged message; (2) > not discussed on alt.config; Nonsense. One doesn't rmgroup active thriving groups simply because they were "not discussed on alt.config", *especially* not several years *after* they were newgrouped. You've got the wrong alt.* hierarchy here, methinks. (3) it has the name > "scientology" in its title which is a trademark and is > misleading, as a.r.s. is mainly used for flamers to attack > the Scientology religion; So what's your point? Are you maintaining that nobody can use a trademarked word? Are you maintaining that nobody can attack the Scientology religion? Again, I think you have quite the wrong alt.* hierarchy here... (4) it has been and continues to be > heavily abused with copyright and trade secret violations and > serves no purpose other than condoning these illegal practices. Um, I think you're seriously confused; this is alt.religion.scientology, not alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.scientologists . "Trade secret violations"? For a *religion*? I think you have the wrong United States of America here... Dave "And next I suppose they'll say they've copyrighted the word 'Scientology' - L. Ron would be furious!"
