First off, Sorry to get "dissed" about the apostrophe.  Also I do not wish to
be "the type that nastily, accost, lambaste, and otherwise trounce
unmercifully upon some poor, innocent, unsuspecting and impressionable newbie"
for I feel that as a newbie (a term to which I bear no offense) this very
thing happened to me...and as I moved in and out of the Society for the past 6
years it happened to me at almost every new venture...So maybe these "Nazis"
(as you have cleared up does not mean a member of the German fascist party or
anyone who holds similar views) cause "newbies" to either split for good or to
become so sour that they become like their offenders.  Just a thought.
