Did you know? Scientology was banned by Wikipedia!

Unprecedented 2009 ban necessary to stop Scientology distorting Wikipedia’s objectivity

The ban, reported in The Register May 29th 2009, was in response to continual editing of material that was critical of Scientology from recognised Scientology IP addresses.

While there was no evidence to show this particular activity was ordered by church hierarchy, The Register cites a former member of Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs (OSA) as saying:

“The Office has organized massive efforts to remove Scientology-related materials and criticism from the web. The guys I worked with posted every day all day.  It was like a machine. I worked with someone who used five separate computers, five separate anonymous identities…to refute any facts from the internet about the Church of Scientology.”
