"In current UNIX religious practice, the term User
Group is used to refer to the congregations at the Hologram
Services. It seems that after a while the early practitioners of
the cult began to have meetings (where people actually appeared
together in the same room). Why these were called `User Group'
meetings is unclear, since the early meetings were attended by
Gurus and not by Users. At the time, a User seems to have been a
derogatory term for the un-initiates. However, the head Guru at a
site was given the title 'Super-User'; perhaps this was to hide the
evangelical nature of the Guru's task."
