In March and April 1997 I sent a questionnaire to 282 occult e-mail addresses. The addressees were partly pure surfers, operators of large and/or smaller websites and also people who run their own -L.
The questions did contain some word shells/euphemisms into which the receiver could project their own concepts: "active", "passive", "consumation", "occultism", "inspiring" etc. Some of my questions were more "suggestive" type questions regarding my essay on "The McDonaldisation of Occulture".
Since my reputation as an observer of the "Caliphate" may have prevented some members of this group from answering my questionnaire (as well as Heisenberg's uncertainty principle), the reader should of course take this into account when reading the responses.
59 of the 282 respondents answered the questionnaire, representing 21% overall.
Of course, this questionnaire is not intended to be a comprehensive or scientific report. The aggregated data only represents a subset of internet users and provides a snapshot of public sentiment in the year 1997.
You will not only find my questionaire here but also a collection of the most impressive and most significant answers.
I would like to express my sincere thanks.
