has decided to remove a post that contained
text allegedly copyrighted by the Church of Scientology.
The discussion-based Web site generally allows users to post
messages about Internet news, free software, and free
speech. The Church of Scientology, however, threatened to
take legal action against Slashdot if it did not remove an
anonymous posting that quoted a copyrighted church tract,
known as Operating Thetan, Section III (OT III).
