I just don't see how they can be stopped considering all their money and
power & legal intimidation.  I have read that most of their revenue is from
newcomers to the organization that spend a few hundred/thousand dollars and
then leave.  Bad publicity like this may make a dent, but I doubt will be a
critical hit.  I keep on wondering how John Travolta and Tom Cruise can be a
part of such an organization that hurts and uses people.  And I shake my
head at the thought that a cocktail party of science fiction writers and a
conversation between L. Ron Hubbard and Robert H. Heinlein resulted in the
seed that created this institution...
