New DU Group requested: The Cult of Skinner.
I had a vision in my dreaming last night. Skinner was there, sitting atop a big poofy chair, keeping a watchful eye over his realm. Omnipotent, omniscient, and ever-present.

He wasn't one of those boring predestination-type god-like figures, either. He was INVOLVED, man. He knew in depth what each DUer had in his/her heart and/or mind. He steered some people towards each other, and others away from each other, and drove some into frantic fits of madness just for fun. He guided the mods almost instantaneously to the forbidden orgy threads, to keep his dominion clean and pure. And he sometimes read and edited people's PMs to each other just to make sure that in the end, his will was done. Oh, and he sometimes struck people down with pestilence and plague, but usually only freetard disruptors. And the unfortunate few he picked to be his Job-type folks, but you really can't deny a god-like figure a few of those, right?

Towards the end of the vision, he recognized my presence, and he said, "shortbus, my son, you must go forth and start a DU group to promote the The Cult of Skinner." He also instructed me to start a paypal account in leiu of a collection plate. I'm working on it, oh almighty lord and master of DU! Don't strike me down!

I need the usual 10 donor-status members...

18. All praise the mighty Skinner! Sacrifice goats and chicken!
Seriously - the idea of diversifying DU in interest groups saved my sanity yet again (the first time being in 2001). So, for all these reasons, I'll join the cult!
