For nearly a year now, I have witnessed the unsuccessful attempts of numerous Scientologists[tm], including the "Church's" leaders, to handle this newsgroup. Helena Kobrin, Andrew Milne, and Cory Brennan have repeatedly tried to apply the tech to the people who comprise a.r.s. and have inerrantly made utter fools of themselves with their efforts. The "tech," which claims to enhance the communication capabilities of those who practice it, is completely incapable of dealing with the simple written communications of a Usenet newsgroup. Literally every Scientologist[tm] posting to this newsgroup has provided ample proof that the "Church" is a morally and ethically bankrupt "applied religious philosophy." Scientology[tm] claims that the proof of the tech's workability is evident in its application to daily life. When judged by the "Church's" own criteria, the tech is a total failure. No thoughtful individual would *ever* waste money on such a flimflam after seeing its faults so amply demonstrated on a.r.s.
