ScientologyWatch.org launches -- vote on time 'til nastygram

Declan,

I'm the registered owner of ScientologyWatch.org, for which I've
received bogus legal threats from cult lawyer Helena K. Kobrin.  (She
was claiming trademark infringement, which of course is nonsense.)  At
the time she made her initial threats, there was nothing on the site.

Now there is.  ScientologyWatch.org, created by my friends Scott
Pilutik and Kady O'Malley, has just been launched.  It's a news blog
and portal for all things related to the Scientology cult.  As part of
the launch, there's a poll asking how long readers think it will take
for the next legal threat to arrive.  Politch readers are invited to
participate.

Cheers,

-- Dave Touretzky
