Apparently all us old folks here in the Info For Beginners folder are under a serious misconception.  We've been giving out information on paganism, witchcraft, and Wicca as if that's what the questioners want.  Since the same questions keep being asked again, I submit that perhaps we aren't being very helpful.  I've compiled a list of characteristics based on some thorough research into the questions being asked and the assumptions behind them, and I believe I've codified some rules of this new faith.

5. Fluffiest of Fluffies:

In the quest to harm none, a symbol of peace and love and little chocolate donuts must be found.  Paying close attention to the appearance of the magickal "k"...the symbol of their faith can be seen in every supermarket.  I give you...
