I'd never heard of this "scientology" until you mentioned it. I just checked wikipedia briefly, and it appears to be a recently established religion. I am curious as to why the religious beliefs of the CEO have anything to do with the software the company makes?

You've never heard of Scientology? I find that extraordinary. L. Ron Hubbard's "religion" has been around since 1952. It has quite the reputation as a mind control cult.

It is, ofcourse every individual's choice whether to boycott a product or not, for political or religious reasons. But, if you apply that criterion uniformly, then we cannot buy most of the stuff essential for a modern lifestyle....gas (comes from regimes that support terrorist movements), commercial goods (chinese slave labor factories), drugs (unethical and greedy pharamaceutical companies) etc etc. There is no end to it...

So what is your point?

That's my point: It's some information that people can use to make a personal decision. Also, I think it's interesting. At no point did I suggest a boycott, did I?

What is important is how well the product performs. If it sucks, dont' buy it.

You hit a bullseye on that remark.. Interestingly alot of Hollywood stars are now into Scientology..

Ah, scientology is not known in my part of the world. :whistling: I had never heard about it until you mentioned it, thats why I had to wiki it.

All idealogies, religions and political beliefs are mind control cults in some way or the other. Any activity that encourages group behaviour and allegiance to an idea or set of ideas is a form of 'mind control'. No point in singling out any particular idealogy in that aspect. It doesnt serve any purpose.

Point taken, you didn't mention any boycott explicitly, but I took that as an implied statement. Excuse the confusion, if that was not your intention.

I'm glad it is not something you have to be concerned about where you are.

There is a difference between "mind control" and true mind control. If you do some research on Scientology, I think you will agree that it is a pretty nasty mind control cult. I know some people who would rather not use Diskeeper's product and have uninstalled the Windows defragger, which is a derivative of Diskeeper.

No problem. It would be hard to boycott Diskeeper, since it has been part of Windows since Windows 2000.

Interesting. I never heard that scientology ever took over a whole company. I always thought that it just took over wacko movie stars.

Well, front is probably too strong a word. The CEO of Diskeeper is active in Scientology and has donated huge sums to the organization. The employees are most likely urged to become Scientologists. The company has at least once refused technical support to pharmaceutical manufacturers. You can read an interesting thread on it here:

Front is not too strong of a word. It is common for cult members to deny services to anti-cult members and orgs. It is a front.
