the problem is that:
A. There are so many covens now that people are flipping back and forth. People have a hard time deciding when there are so many.
B. People seem to feel its easier to create a coven with a Slight deviation from one of the other several covens on Topic "X", then to join an existing coven and contribute.
C. As with anything Else in life, some obviously think that its better to start a coven and be priest(ess) dispite little knowledge simply for the Status, then to join the rank and file and Learn.
Pet will delete the covens he deems to be simply a waste of space as he sees fit, in his own time.
