Re: <nettime> slashdot chooses its battle and complies to scientology claims


I think the *real* test would be what Slashdot did if
the clams were to demand the identity of the poster.
If the poster's anonymizer wasn't up to snuff, then
Xenu help him/her. And if Slashdot delivered up the
poster, then all Xenu's legions of body thetans
couldn't save Slashdot's reputation.
