>There are dissimilarities as well.

Of course. I know Dr Bob may not particulary like what I've written comparing babble and a cult. However I see similarities, also I see differences between the two. I predicted that possibly the responses by the deputies and perhaps close members would be veering towards the differences...

Which again makes me see another interesting point, lets say for example, outside of babble of course, that someone joins a group, that group is in actual fact a cult. After a while they realise the group they originally joined appears to be showing a side which makes the person feel its similar to a cult. They bring the subject to the members, subordinates and leader. Would the members, more the subordinates and especially the leader - simply say, "yeah your right this is cult, took you long enough to know, etc.." Or would they disregard the matter and/or try and get the person to see otherwize?

Oh well, either way I think i've concluded my participation on the subject, I find it very interesting but would prefer not put too much thought in to it, as I have already. It has made me think alot about this site though, I was thinking how a website that has the power to help so many, and yet quite possibly cause harm to many and because its the internet no one really knows unless its written and recorded on here. It would be nice to know that this website is represented by some sort of professional body, whether it be the University, APA, mental health charity or some other organization. I know its just a website, but when you look at the volume of time people spend here and that its said to be a "virtual community" its clearly a big part of peoples lifes, and I feel that gives reason to someone other than one man who said using someone elses words "can do whatever the f*ck he likes" to be regulated, or even sponsered by another authority.
