I'm not surprised by this though. They would not be considered a cult
only because they are so numerous. They are called introverts. While I
understand that some extroverts can't understand the idea of privacy as
a goal, an equal number of introverts can't understand the exstacy of
splattering one's life all over the public's view, and generally find
people who do to be rather obnoxious and repellent creatures, no matter
what their physical beauty.
