Re: The Main Scifag PR Man in UK Thinks That Dealing With Anons is Like Swatting Flie Why not the journalist of the article in question? Or a journalist from their main competitor? In general: If the person in question holds a senior position in Scientology and the person has already brought claims about their lives into play - such as in a news story about them, their own home page, etc. etc. then it's fair to look into it to verify it. But if it's totally unrelated "dirt" - such as for example of having an affair or having a child who's on drugs or something - then even if it were DM himself you would look pretty shitty for exposing it. And beyond that there's the legal question about libel and defamation, because in the UK you can be convicted of that even if you're speaking the truth.
