It would be impossible to do this - and even if they tried, this would
lead to a greater number of stories about censoring those stories.
The process would be recursive in a way which I think would be familiar
to Mickey Mouse, as the Sorcerer's Apprentice, when he was trying to
deal with that errant broom.
Hmmm . . . Googling:
google censorship scientology
leads to 1330 pages, and to:
The search page returned by Google has *8* sponsored links regarding
Scientology - and they all seem to be pro-Scientology. These are
pay-per-click ads . . . .
I clicked them all. I never thought I would go to church . . . much
less set even a cursor inside a Scientology church, but today I did it
happily, knowing I was making the bastards finance my favourite search
