Scientologists Scolded

As the Church of Scientology slowly tinkers with fixing up its headquarters on Sunset Boulevard, church members are now banned from tinkering with the Scientology entry on Wikipedia. Via the Los Angeles Times: "The Internet encyclopedia Wikipedia has blocked all contributions from computers at the Church of Scientology's Los Angeles headquarters to stop users there from revising articles to reflect a pro-Scientology viewpoint." And it's more widespread than just Los Angeles: The Register, which first broke the story, reports that the "Wikipedia supreme court has banned contributions from all IP addresses owned or operated by the Church of Scientology and its associates." Wikipedia has also banned some critics of Scientology from editing entries. [LA Times/Register]
