As the editor of Counterknowledge.com, a site where we debunk cults and conspiracy theories, I spend hours every day agonising over whether to run stories about the Church of Scientology. As anyone who has dealt with the Church will know, you have to be jolly careful what you say about them. I certainly can't afford an encounter with their lawyers.

But I'm considerably less apprehensive than I was even a year ago about running Scientology scoops. Why? Because the Church is now a victim of The Streisand Effect.
