Church of Scientology VS Anonymous

Is anyone else following the protests that the internet group Anonymous is staging against the Church of Scientology?

I ran across this a couple of weeks ago and for those of you who haven't heard about it, the hacker group Anonymous has decided that the Church of Scientology should be destroyed (apparently because they did a take down notice to Youtube to get rid of an embarassing Tom Cruise vid). Anonymous is a very loose group with no fixed membership but thousands of people heeded their call on Feb 10th and yesterday on Mar 15 to protest at Scientology centers across the globe.

Personally, I applaud the LEGAL actions of individuals to fight the what I consider to be the scourge of Scientology. The more I read about COS and what they have done, what L.Ron Hubbard has said and what they do to people, the more I think that they deserve all the bad publicity they are getting.

Don't get me wrong, if you want to believe that space aliens are haunting you and that they go around in DC10's, then be my guest. Just don't harass people who try to leave your church or criticize you.

Anyway, I'm curious what the body TFP thinks (which is why I posted this here instead of Philosophy).
