Factnet Closing Site

Postby Number Six » Sun Dec 21, 2014 12:40 am

Mr. Wollersheim who was connected to the Scientology cult at one time and successfully sued it announced that he will be shutting down Factnet, an anti-cult site. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Wollersheim

Apparently the hacks caused a lot of damage and policing the site took too much in resources.

Apparently, factnet is still there. I can't say it's the same site, as Scientology would have sued archive.net to remove alleged copyright violations from the archives, but it's still there.

There was an instance, about 20 years ago, when Scientology sued the pants off an anti-cult organization to the point where the organization just surrendered and let Scientology take over its over name and files, whereupon the organization, operating under the same name and not announcing the change of management, condemned every other cult but gave Scientology a clean bill of health.
