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.

Fortunately this was a temporary, one-day suspension, while the Univ. brought its own legal types in to look at the claims. This forum (alt.support.ex-cult) will, in the main, have opinions already on the validity of a "copyright infringement" claim from Scientologists, but I think it quite reasonable that the Univ's *initial* reaction was to suspend the pages, as if it had been a "Warez" site (i.e. offering copyrighted software), do a preliminary investigation, and put the pages back on-air within a day.
