We heard from a lot of readers who were impressed by the candor and class exhibited by Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis in a piece he wrote for us that we published on Saturday.

In that piece, Haggis, who appeared last week in an explosive episode of A&E's Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, wanted us to have enough background to understand why the Church of Scientology's reaction to that show had stunned him in one particular way.

Haggis explained that when he was leaving the church in 2009, he and former top-ranking church member Mark "Marty" Rathbun had worked out with another defector, actor Jason Beghe, some code names for their encrypted conversations in Hushmail to keep the church and its spies from learning who else they were talking to, which included several Scientologists who didn't want their disaffection known.
