True enough MechantAmi, but there's no guarantee that a new coven would do any better. Besides weird fluffiness there also appears to be a rather widespread problem with lack of activity and several covens have a problem with low membership.
I'd suggest looking into the different covens and seeing which ones seem, uh, least bogus. Once you've got that down you can see if any of them look interesting and mail a few members asking what all they do. If you're really concerned about fluffiness you can look at the forum posts by members to get a better idea on what kinds of people they have.

I doubt that, that particular feature will be available again. The site has, if I'm not mistaken, 37 covens as of right now. That being said, there are plenty of options to choose from for anyone that is interested in a coven, so adding more would seem a bit pointless in my opinion.
