What is new about this? The Popes have been playing this trick since
about the 4th century AD. Except they did it the slow and laborious
way by employing hosts of monks locked up in monasteries to carry out
the search and replace.
The job began when they realised that they couldn't quite argue with
any conviction against those who know better, and when they finally
completed the task they inflicted the Inquisition on anyone happening
to have retained a copy in the original.
Along with a few innocent pagans and witches into the bargain, so I
understand as to establish the foundations for modern resource use
