unpredictable. the nature of time and religion seems to result
in a variety of names for social groups by which some novel
and identifiable differentiation from tradition may be seen.

this is reflected in the internet and domain name registry,
as it provides novel identifiers for cyberspatial regions.

the larger (an dmore interesting to me) issue of how the LHP
changes location, form, name, and content, and how to go
about distinguishing its current location of intensity, is
seldom addressed in forums such as these. you can find one
explanation for it (the Great Martyrdom Cult or GMC) in
one of the many FAQs available within alt.satanism.

> I'm a member of alt.satanism, 

a flimsy kind of membership, since alt.satanism is a public forum.

> I don't need to be a member of any other community or organisation 
> to keep in touch with other satanists.

good for you. :> some apparently find value in association with
more private groups or those with similar ideology. some value 
moderation and the restraint from flammage (rather than use a 
killfile they either go moderated or seek less public venues).

depth of involvement necessitate time dedication and attention
to administrative detail. most communication about general
materials can be done in public forums without travesty.

another interesting topic is what we should EXPECT from
membership in any group (whether a public forum or some
more formal and closed enterprise) for our efforts. it
is my contention that org-Satanism is often detrimental
to its participants, but this assertion follows on the
variety of testimonials from ex-org-Satanists and from
my own experiences with religious groups and orders.
