This involved filling in a form, and, yes you've guessed it, sending some money! So will someone please congratulate me?

Sure! Congratulations on your magazine subscription!

Well, I'm going to state the obvious here, but you have to be a registered member to become an active member.

There is a food chain you must climb and you always start from the bottom.

"So what, he sent in for registered member.", you say.

It may be no big deal to you, but to him, it is.

At least he's made that first step and he feels good about it.

Once you send in for yours, I'm sure you'll feel the same excitement as he does.

In others words, why don't you stop pissing on his parade.

You make some very good points, DemiGod.

I totally agree with DemiGod. You have been on the forum since 10/24/05, maybe you are not at the point to making a commitment for yourself yet. But it seems that he has. So leave him be.

So he has actually recieved the Membership card then? Or has he simply filled in the forms and sent off the funds? I thought it was the latter, but pardon me if i'm wrong.

And i'm not pissing on the guy's parade. I just think that celebrating sending off your application as opposed to becoming a member is a different thing altogether. Shout it from the rooftops when you become a CoS Member and i'll be the first to congratulate you. Otherwise it seems a tad over-reactive.

It should be obvious that filling in the form is the first step to receiving the card. Personally, I chose not to celebrate sending off the form but if he wants to then nothing wrong with that.

Sending off the form isn't an achievement as such, but it is something to feel good about. I felt pretty good when I was standing in the post office with my application in hand, simply because I had been waiting for so long.

I'm not sure what you discern as a difference between the two. For some people, saving up the money is a huge accomplishment. And you may not be aware of it, but after sending your money, getting your membership card can take months, maybe he didn't feel like waiting until then.

Satanists don't say, or not say things just because we want to please others. It's called individuality m'dear. That's part of what being a Satanist is all about. If announcing his registration makes his clock tick than I say let him.

I didn't realise that that your length of time on this forum had a bearing on how much of a Satanist you are! Hmmm....... so the 30 odd years of my life before joining this internet forum don't count?

I guess I see things differently than you do. I shall explain. I have a passion for Satanism, and all it represents. I get excited when I talk about Satanism. I become inspired when I gaze upon the Baphomet, as I see Satan and myself are one and the same. I wish this man and give this man all the respect that is his just due.
I mean when a person reads and identifies with The Satanic Bible
Should be call for celebration "I know I did." All IM saying here is, I think you are simply less as passionate about the issue than others which is more than obvious. I hope you do not take my reply as any kind of ill response, I just don't see the need to degrade someone on reaching a desired goal.

None taken, but i am the kind of person who praises something and celebrates it after the actual point of success rather than on the road to the particular goal. it comes from getting excited way too often about a great many things only for things to fall flat later. Sorry if you were insulted...

The guy just wanted to mention he was becoming a member and then congratulations were offered freely by members. I think that says it all. Who's the one making a big deal out of it here? Sheesh! Congratulations Darrell!

The sending of the registration, in my opinion, is an acknowledgement of one's beliefs/way of life and commitment to them. So yes, it is worthy of sharing if one wishes to do so.
