freedomofmind Yahoo discussion group. This site was developed in cooperation with Steve Hassan. This fact alone gives the color of the group, which is most probably of the anti-cult flavor. Indeed, it says that much in its description: "Learn and discuss the tactics used by destructive groups or individuals". Although it is open to all, it also is moderated, and "the moderator reserves the right to unsubscribe anyone who ... becomes disruptive". Given the fact that to "become disruptive" is used to weed out dissenters from moderated anti-Scientology groups such as OCMB, Enturbulation.org and the anti-Scientology IRC channel, one has to wonder whether the moderation in this yahoo group is anywhere better.
