Tampa Bay Tribune (Florida)
Wikipedia has blocked users from the Church of Scientology, along with Scientology's critics, from editing articles about the church found on the online encyclopedia. A team of 15 senior editors called an arbitration committee had been keeping an eye on the more than 400 articles about Scientology and noticed a series of additions and deletions that slanted the bias of the entries, Wikipedia spokesman Jay Walsh said.

Lawrence H. "Larry" Brennan
I worked on the corporate restructuring in the early 80s that lead to the various “ABLE” groups (Narconon, Applied Scholastics, etc.) falling under the “ABLE” umbrella which in turn was 100% controlled by organized scientology’s Sea Organization under different corporate umbrellas (mostly Church of Scientology International “CSI").
