We've told you about Kenneth Kramer before. He's a Scientologist and private investigator who operates PsychSearch.net, part of Scientology's "psych busting" activities aimed at utterly destroying the psychiatric profession so it can be replaced by L. Ron Hubbard's mental health ideas.

Of course, even though church leader David Miscavige has boasted that Scientology has "booby-trapped" psychiatry so that it can be completely wiped out, in truth the mental health industry is huge, Scientology is tiny, and it has little effect.

But that doesn't keep operators like Kramer from claiming that they're making an impact on the "evil psychs" on behalf of Hubbardism. What Kramer does is gather information about psychiatrists who are disciplined for various reasons — every industry has its bad actors, after all — and pretends that he's somehow damaging the entire field by cataloging and publicizing those individual cases of wrongdoing.
