A REMINDER[edit]

ATTENTION "SAHTAHN":

  • WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL IDEAS ABOUT OSIRIS, THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, KABBALAH, OR YOUR DELUSION THAT YOU ARE AN ANGEL. YOU CANNOT WRITE WHAT YOU WANT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT WRITING ANYTHING ON-TOPIC.

(For those that are curious, check the history, a crazy IP editor has been using this page as a forum for his off-topic insanity. I normally would not use this sort of stuff, but this nutjob just won't quit even though noone is supporting him.) Ian.thomson (talk) 16:50, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

I've protected the page as a last resort since I think the ordinary first resort, blocking, isn't going to be effective over such a large and variable range. Though I hate to have to do this because even though there aren't many edits to this page, an important thread above, the one about Boyd Rice, was started by an IP. Soap 18:18, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

Derleth[edit]

Just to explain my deleting the reference to August Derleth's being an associate of LaVey's - the only evidence for this seems to be a claim by LaVey himself that Derleth attended a meeting in the sixties at LaVey's house. I was in constant correspondence with Derleth from 1961 until his death, and he never mentioned this - indeed, he hardly ever travelled further from Sauk City than Madison.

Vandalism/POV[edit]

Article currently starts w/ "The Church of Satan is a bunch of idiots who worship Satan." Clear case of vandalism and non-neutral POV. Alberrosidus (talk) 03:15, 19 December 2013 (UTC)

Belief in Satan[edit]

An IP editor has disputed the statement that "The Church of Satan does not "worship" or believe in Satan, nor does it believe in gods.", observing "Anton Lavey believed in the Devil as is exhibited in the "Satanis" video documentary and "The Satanic Bible". The longer this misinformation exists on this page the more people that will be deceived. By including this simple statement here "Wikipedia" keeps deleting it. I thought this page could be edited by anyone?" - this "simple statement" of theirs was deleted merely because discussion goes on talk pages, not in the middle of paragraphs. I've flagged the sentence with a disputed tag and moved it here for discussion. --McGeddon (talk) 14:50, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
