Submission + - Church of Scientology Enlisting Followers in Censorship->

DrEnter writes: Apparently, the recent very public divorce of Katie Holmes and devout believer Tom Cruise is reflecting negatively on the Church of Scientology. Adding to this are other recent issues causing problems for "church" leadership. In response, the "church" has decided to encourage its followers to censor online chatter and comments about the "church" and the divorce. This Yahoo blog post sums it up nicely. In short, they are encouraging members to complain about people posting negative comments about the "church" as violating the "Code of Conduct" in the posting venue. I can only imagine they are hoping these complaints will just be rubber-stamped and respected without investigation, but I think the campaign deserves a bit more attention.
