You may be correct, but see below.
Corporate scientology acts in ways that cannot be understood if you had rational people in ultimate charge of the decisions. Ignoring critics makes far more sense than attacking them and gaining more critics. Take the recent Google and xenu.net story that resulted in the stats being doubled for visits to xenu.net and a new influx of newly made critics reading this group.
Scientology wastes lawyer time and money on a projects directly leading to vast damage to itself and leading ultimately to the dissolution of the corporation. In my personal experience, they have been doing the same robotic behavior since early 1995, i.e., they show little evidence of learning.
Now, I can understand this destructive organizational behavior by assuming our friend with the buggering obsession has been programmed with LRH implants, the vicious stuff LRH wrote down about how he wanted his minions to treat the rest of the world. Of course when LRH was alive he could change scientology policy if it failed, but with him dead, the implanted ones are locked into a state where they can't change policy no matter how painful the results.
The lawyers *could* be following insane and ultimately destructive post humus orders of LRH and ordering DM and perhaps others to implement destructive policies against their own judgement if not his.
This *would* explain the external observation that scientology has been acting in a robotic and self destructive mode for a number of years. If this is the essence of your argument, it *does* account for the external observation of scientology over the past years.
It fails to pass the simplicity rule though, requiring several non scientology lawyer to be acting bugf*ck rather than one lifer scientologist.
Stranger things have happened though and I don't have much of a track record for predicting this kind of madness. Perhaps the lawyers really are in charge.
