Public and Private Posts: If you make a post "friends-only," it will only be visible to group members. If you make a post "public," anyone will be able to see the post and any comments. In either case, only group members will have the ability to post comments.
Tyling: Do not make direct reference to the contents of any initiation rituals. Vague allusions may be permissible if they are vague enough that you would feel comfortable making them in public. Though this group is tyled to OTO initiates only, the LJ server and the owners of that server have not been bound by oath.
About Cross-Posting: please feel free to post relevant items from your own journal, or elsewhere. See above for an explanation of what kinds of posts are appropriate here.
IMPORTANT: Do not post:
rumors or unsupported allegations
debate/attacks on ideological grounds (e.g. labeling "Thelemic fundamentalist" or "bourgeois hippie")
Repeated posts of this kind of material will cause you to be banned. This community is strictly moderated and you will lose your ability to post if you ignore guidance from maintainers. Therefore we strongly recommend that you check to make sure your posts are topical, friendly, and productive, and listen carefully if the maintainer(s) indicate that something is not appropriate for the community, and you will be fine.
