Addendum, 23 August 2008:
A more detailed indictment of Gerald (Joe) Moreno's extensive smear campaigns against all criticism of Sathya Sai Baba has recently been issued by Robert Priddy.

A list of Gerald ‘Joe’Moreno’s 16 known activist sites vigorously dedicated to discrediting and disparaging all critics of Sathya Sai Baba (2003-2008).

The beginning of the campaign
http://vishvarupa.com (c2003)
www.vishvarupa.com (pre-2004)
(Miscellaneous pro-SSB blogs from ?2003 or 2004)

A marked increase in activity and ferocity followed
www.saisathyasai.com (?2006-) His major network of denunciations and disparagement of at least 16 writers and critics

www.sai-fi.net Also a major site, with links to main official and unofficial Sathya Sai Organisation sites.

His growing labyrinth of denunciatory (free) blogs against individual critics

http:// sanjaydadlaniexposed.blogspot.com
(Those four sites are directed at a single critic)

The other major targets so far have been:
http://om-sathya-sai-baba.blogspot.com (Especially about Dr Timothy Conway)
and yet another general all-purpose blog at http://sathyasaibaba.wordpress.com
