Digg it![edit]

Digg this article! DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 01:28, 12 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"The Content in this Article May be Inaccurate. Readers have reported that this story contains information that may not be accurate." So says Digg...seems like Scientology got to them. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 14:24, 12 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The number of diggs has gone down dramatically. I suspect that scientology has undigged (or whatever its called, I'm not familiar with dig) the article lots of times. --A101 - (talk) 19:38, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Actually it was never this high to begin with. Now whoever diggs it has to contend with the bad diggs. So the more good diggs it gets the higher it goes. And vice versa. Of course no one knows how many buries it already has. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 20:03, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh dear[edit]

This will make things rather problematic for Anonymous. They'll be protesting outside a sealed building. Epic lulz! --Brian McNeil / talk 08:15, 12 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

OH LAWDS![edit]

IS THAT SOME VICTORY? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Purplepong (talkcontribs) 02:01, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The Church of Scientology has always been corrupt. They are free to believe whatever they want, but it's wrong to charge people for salvation.
That's not a church. Also, they've perpetrated so many crimes, hurt so many people. It's just a scam.

Oh lawd, is dat some win? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:40, 13 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Church of Scientology is long overdue for a thorough investigation into multiple and well-founded allegations of severe child neglect, coercing members to disconnect from "suppressive" friends and family members (i.e., anyone who criticizes the Church), and the lies that they tell to their members in order to get money out of them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:20, 15 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikinews on Youtube[edit]

Someone likes us. They made a youtube video from a part of our article: [1]. It seems that many of the videos of press coverage of the raid have our link in the information area. Good times, and also some of these videos: [2] also link to us. Cool :-) DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 00:29, 16 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Glad you are so objective. I can't possibly see how you could be contributing to comments like this. --SVTCobra 01:00, 16 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Anon delivers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:03, 21 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Friend of Scientologist[edit]

I have been a Scientologist for 12 years. I have never seen anything illegal occur in the church. In fact I saw a very strict adherence to the law on all matters. Granted the members are very enthusiastic about their religion and some do go overboard in trying to get others to join. This is a common manifestation and not a legal issue. Someone in Belgium made a mistake I suspect. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:18, 15 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
