According to The Register, Wikipedia has banned multiple IP addresses related to the Church of Scientology for extreme, one-sided editing in an attempt to remove Scientology criticism from the Web. The decision wasn’t an easy one though: Wikipedia’s Arbitration Committee took nearly half a year to resolve the matter.This makes me so happy. Such simple minded people (Scientologists) ought not to be allowed to do anything that lures the minds of people away from real, natural, rational thought. Of course this is just my emotions speaking. So rather than banning them completely (we have no right, after all, to repress anyone's or any organization's right to exist. We are a free people), what we really need is true and effective education that will allow us to save the precious, impressionable minds of our young from such superstitious nonsense.
Perhaps as an alternative to banning them from wikipedia, why not just enforce tagging. Scientologist would tag their entries and edits with "scientology" and so we could see what the scientologists believe or simply filter out their content. It would then be up to the individual to make their own choice.
