>Bans Scientology From Site


Wikipedia has 
<http://www.news.com.au/technology/story/0,28348,25556094-5014239,00.html>banned 
the Church of Scientology and its members from editing its site after 
discovering that members of the church were editing articles in order 
to give the church favorable coverage.

The move is 
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/05/29/wikipedia_bans_scientology/>being 
hailed as "an unprecedented effort to crack down on self-serving 
edits," and it is the first instance in which Wikipedia has banned a 
group as large as the Church of Scientology.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
