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. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

Who is the individual who did the cancellation, if it was legal and
justified? Why don't they stand up and take credit?
I do not condone copyright infringement. That has not been proven.
Neither do I condone unauthorized forged cancel messages. I have seen
evidence of that with my own eyes.
Several of the messages recently cancelled were reposted. At least one
of these included only a couple of paragraphs of Co$ material with
several paragraphs of commentary. This cancel cannot be justified, if
unauthorized forged cancels ever are (and I doubt that).

You are the one directly supporting illegal activities. I am against
unauthorized forged cancel messages.
I have not been repeatedly demonstrated as a prevaricator in this group.
I am not one of the rabid flamers (though I enjoy some of them).
I have tried to be rational and get answers from you about your smear of
Morrison and Foerster.
Chris Miller (email@example.com) is a member of the Church of
Scientology, which is engaged in litigation against Dennis Ehrlich.
Ehrlich is represented by Morrison and Foerster (MoFo) on a pro bono
basis. Chris Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org posted a message to soc.women
claiming that s/he had a daughter who had been hired by MoFo. S/he made
unsubstantiated allegations about MoFo and claimed that s/he was therefore
concerned about his/her daughter's well-being. When questioned about this
post on alt.rec.scientology, Chris Miller (email@example.com) produced
no evidence for his/her allegations agains MoFo and claimed that some
details in the post had been changed to disguise his/her identity.
After many weeks of Miller's unresponsiveness to the questions posted on
alt.rec.scientology, many have come to believe the post to soc.women was
a fishing expedition to dig up information that can be used in a dirty
tricks campaign against MoFo.
I'm one of them.
