Understanding Fanatics Cults
05:33:40 Sep 26th 22 - Matthew (Chief Trogdar):

It is quite obvious to anyone who has been online throughout the rise of Youtube and Twitch and Twitter that in recent years 'the fanatic' or 'fan' has become a much larger demographic.

What is it about the modern internet that lends itself so strongly towards fan (truncated version of 'fanatic') behavior as well as cult-like behavior?

I for one believe it is human nature, and that the internet feeds into human nature.

We are tribal by nature. We have been since the dawn of time, as we needed it to survive.

The tribal nature can be seen in our sports and music preferences, and has now spilled onto social media.

What he saidÖ
We as human, have a need to be part of something. Because family of a tribe means more change of survival. Survival means not dying. Itís instinct on a biological level. 

By the wayÖ stop posting these posts Barny Lol. Love you, man. But i feel like itís 2007 and all communication is through forums and MSN lol

mIRC was a the best chat client. I think it was better than Skype and did a better job than Twitch Chats that copied the formula.

Forum Posting is cool, I think it will make a comeback when people realize that their online footprints aren't consequential/

Why has the word Ďcultí been used? As a professor of cults (my day job!) - Iím always up for a decent discussion about the topic. Fanaticism doesnít need to be used in tandem though.

Iíve also just had an article on Qanon and Facebook accepted for publication. Happy to share when itís released.

Albatross is a cult then? No wonder no one ever leaves... they have to drink the blood of a virgin to do so, don't they?
