"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."
