This is a pretty ballsy move. Gawker.com have posted a tom cruise introduction to scientology video and are going to fight the scientologists' attempts to have it removed on the basis that it is newsworthy and consequently protected by freedom of speech. Of course going on the tactics used by the scientologists on their critics in the past I can't help but feel that even if gawker wins, they're going to lose somehow.
Is it the beginning of a slippery slide into middle age now that I can no longer be bothered to learn about relatively modern things like bebo and myspace? I got a message saying someone wanted to confirm how they knew me and before I knew it it was asking me about people who had added me months ago and sending them requests to confirm the story *I* was apparantly telling. Sod that.
