My friend, what you are seeing here is Stratification in

Simple fact of life 1: there are lots of morons in the world,
who need something to occupy their time.

Simple fact of life 2: Usenet is a great time-waster (not
quite so good as IRC, but it's definitely up there).  Thus,
many of the above-referenced bored morons find their way
to Usenet.

Simple fact of life 3: some of the morons, having slightly
more going for them than the rest, create websites, chat
rooms, mailing lists, and suchlike, so they can play at
leading the other morons. It may sound like I'm condemning
this: on the contrary, I think it's great.  Those who amuse
the morons are doing a good and valuable service to the
community, and should be commended.

For the most part, alt.satanism is a device to keep the
morons entertained.  There are a few other purposes(nothing
cures stress like flaming some idiot who desperately needs
it, and you can occasionally find some intelligent folk on
here if you're willing to comb the dungheap for diamonds),
but for the most part it's nothing more than egalitarianism
in action i.e. the triumph of the lowest common denominator.

Instead of complaining about the low quality of posts on
alt.satanism, you might want to thank your lucky stars that
these idiots waste their time here and are thereby kept
from polluting other, more important sources of information.
