In view of which I've sent the following to Mr True: 24 March, 1995 Mr True, I understand the letter (quoted below) was sent by you to Daniel Davidson. I would hope you would reconsider your actions in light of the letters regarding this matter which you have surely recieved by now. I would hope you've read those letters and done some research into the whole Church of Scientology matter yourself. From the research I've done as a journalist writing an article for _Internet and Comms Today_ magazine here in the UK, I have reason to believe that the charges made against Mr Davidson are if not outright fraudulent, they are at least overblown and yet to be proven in court cases against the many others the CoS has brought similar charges against. Please do not act in haste. Restore Mr Davidson's privileges and let the legal system judge the matter before you take further action. There is an enormous amount of movement towards killing the First Amendment in the States these days from the government all the way down the chain to little local special interest groups. Somewhere along that pro-censorship highway are the activities of the CoS. Please, I urge you, do not be a party to it. I make no claims pro or con with reference to the CoS. I only know what my research has shown and that is that it is guilty at least of being incredibly litiginous and intimidating to its enemies. Please, don't help it in this way to intimidate a student or anyone else. The courts are there for judging, let them do their job. Quoted materials follow: [snipped letters to DD from JT and HK] --
