I am concerned about some of the internet cults we see which appear to be no more than a bunch of videos but which may be acting as "filters" that allow leaders to recruit suicidally-inclined people. It might not even be the leaders of such internet groups, but others who are able to contact and recruit the visible participants.
Does anyone else think this is going on? Is this related to what you have in mind, Redwing?
I tend to agree with you on that dsm. I think Heaven's Gate was probably the most well known internet group (they recruited & indoctrinated alot of members through the internet alone).
I remember seeing the video where Applegate tries to incline others to commit suicide with them when Haley's Comet was passing around. (I think that particular video might still be on youtube or something).
