Thanks for the reply.
I'll apply for Basic and Active memberships ASAP.
About the initiation. I now re-located to London, UK, but was born and used to live in Moscow, Russia.
In Moscow there used to be a group, originally called Black Dragon, and now split into the variety of small groups. One of them, which shares CoS ideology, gave me initiation.
There were attempts fro this group to contact the official CoS in terms of registration, etc., but all the activities was monitored by the governmnet and several menbers were arrested. Russia is very tough in sence of trying to make a legit concession of any organisation, including CoS... Anyway, it's a topic for an essay, rather than a post, so if you want to know more about this situation - e-mail me and I'll describe the situation in details.
