To be honest, I never heard of most of the groups or people that showed up
on the web search. There are many, many people out there using the term
Extropian and talking about extropianism. I would guess a third are
descendents of Max's leadership, a third are self-determined converts, and a
third are unrelated people with unrelated ideas who just like adopted the
term for their own ideas.

We occasional have radically-different people show up and try to redefine
Extropianism retroactively to fit their beliefs. We also have people trying
to attach extropianism to unrelated technology.

By the way, I've never really labeled myself as a Libertarian.
