Wikipedia bans Church of Scientology

At least they’re not banning Cyantitians…

According to The Register, Wikipedia has banned multiple IP addresses related to the Church of Scientology for extreme, one-sided editing in an attempt to remove Scientology criticism from the Web. The decision wasn’t an easy one though: Wikipedia’s Arbitration Committee took nearly half a year to resolve the matter.
The decision, made after users submitted statements, responses, and considerations in what is equivalent to a virtual courtroom, involved votes on 19 principles stating essentially that the Scientology-related accounts violated the core principles of Wikipedia on multiple occasions – even likely coordinating their efforts to erase any critical mentions of Scientology.
