In what can be deemed to be a massive betrayal of ex-cult members' trust these websites - culteducation.com, rickross.net, rickross.org, rick-ross.net and rick-ross.org are now for sale to the highest bidder. As one of the most aggressive cults in the world, you can be sure that CO$ will put in a bid.


And what will the purchaser(s) get for their bucks?


Rickross.com today is the gateway to a vast archive that has been under continuous construction for 17 years. This ever expanding online library includes thousands of individual documents, articles, reports and studies divided into hundreds of subsections by topic such as Scientology, Landmark Education and “brainwashing.”

A wealth of information is contained within the public message board attached to the RI Web site, which has more than 100,000 entries. The posts at this open forum board include comments from former cult members, affected families and others concerned.


This means that the purchaser(s) will get unrestricted access to the identities of all memberships, email addresses, passwords, and other contact details.

This is a massive betrayal of members' trust.

Others expressed concern back in June and Mr Ross posted this message here:

To whom it may concern:

1. The message board was down to a glitch, which was repaired. These things happen.

2. Nothing here will be changed when the domain name culteducation.com is sold.

The name Rick Ross will be deleted from the URL address, but no content will be deleted, moved or changed in any way at this message board and/or the main archives.

Thank you. The statement is in the middle of a totally different thread!!! Why is there not a statement in a thread in its own right? I have no confidence that the contents of this Board or its associated websites will remain with the integrity and protection that we have been used to. If the Board and its contents are not to be included in the sale of the domain name then the domain name is worthless. If the Board etc. IS included then to a cult like CO$ it would be worth $millions if only to identify the many detractors.

SeekingTruth, sale of a domain name would not give anybody the rights to the contents of the server. Domain registers and hosting are often even completely seperate entities. For example, one of my websites is hosted in the US while the registrar for the name is in Canada. I did this so I would be subject to the international system for any domain disputes.

If you are concerned, feel free to send a PM to Mr Rick Ross, owner and moderator of this message board.
