Can we call NASA and every corporation a Cybersect?[edit]

Can we call NASA and every corporation a Cybersect: "due to the group's reliance on the internet for text distribution, recruitment and information-sharing among adherents." --HappyInGeneral (talk) 12:44, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

In a nutshell, cybersectarianism is people using computers to communicate with other people who share similar opinions. If this is true, I should invent a term, and a Wikipedia article, to describe early Christian communication via letters. Epistosectarianism! Got it! Am I famous yet?
