</blockquote><div><br>I'm not sure that the Archive would appreciate being used as an FTP transfer device. I'll ask them, but we are using the Archive as our site for building the DTP, and I'm not sure that I would want to risk pissing them off by having video get put up there, only to be taken down again.
<br><br>Also, I am dead certain that I do not want to deal with the issues of having Scientology bombard the Internet Archive's Digital Tipping Point Video Collection with lots of crap. Dealing with Scientology is a task unto itself, especially if the video exists for any period of time. There are who new levels of legal attacks, bot attacks, trojans, etc that you need to deal with if you are going to be hosting any anti-Scientology stuff for any period of time. I kind of don't want to deal with that fight right now, as I am mostly focused on FOSS, and this is just a temporary side diversion for me.
<br><br>Coincidentally, this guy also changed US Constitutional law with his case against Scientology. Scientology actually tried to raise a legal defense that said that they were exercising their First Amendment rights of freedom of religious expression by torturing this guy. The court shot that argument down, and so now Scientology can never again raise that argument. Or the Krishnas. Or any other cult. So IMHO, this guy is worth helping with a one-off kind of video transfer.
