Alt.religion.scientology Week in Review


Alt.religion.scientology Week in Review Continued summarizes the most significant postings from the Usenet group Alt.religion.scientology for the preceding week for the benefit of those who can't follow the group as closely as they'd like. Out of thousands of postings, I attempt to include news of significant events, new affidavits, court rulings, new contributors, whatever. I hope you find it useful. Like many readers of a.r.s, I have a kill file. So please take into consideration that I may not have seen some of the most significant postings. The articles in A.r.s Week in Review are brief summaries of articles posted to the newsgroup. They include message IDs for the original articles, and many have a URL to get more information. You may be able to find the original article, depending on how long your site stores articles in the newsgroup before expiring them.

LATEST: Rod Keller has done a great job for many years with ARS WIR, but decided in January 2004 that he will no longer make it. Our thanks for the great effort and good wishes to Rod! In January 2005 ARS WIR was started again by an anonymous person.
