That's "our Jewish friends," not "out." The sentiment was sincere even
if my typing isn't so good. : )

Don't you see that Satan and his agents take possession of all inventions
and all achievements of progress to convert them to evil? All the more
reason to finally wake up and and get to work in order to reconquer the
positions taken up by the enemy.

I'm not sure about the shield.  Seems to me it would work better to use the
sign from the Raven, or a screenshot of the interior when Janette was there.

The paint roller is a really cute idea, though.  Now if I could just get a
picture of LaCroix wielding it!

I think at some time *someone* must have invented the names.  However, like
you, I have some doubts about them being actual *factions*.  (Hence my
asking about them, of course.)

As it happens, there's a list of faction names, the "Affiliations FAQ", that
was compiled by Meredith and posted in May 1996.  It's preserved on Mr.
Happy's site.  This is a very long list, supposedly complete at the time.
Certainly, it even includes a number of joke factions that were current on
list, as well as names that were proposed for new third-season
factions--names that weren't adopted, I mean.  (Mind you, it doesn't
preserve similar unadopted names from earlier years.)

Of the three faction names I asked about, the Nevermores *are* mentioned in
the Affiliations FAQ.  Interestingly, that is the one that that you
remember, too.  Meredith describes the faction as "controversial".  Indeed,
I gather from a comment on the Dreamwidth version of my blog that that is a
bit of an understatement!  So I've added a bit about that to the wiki
article on the Nevermores.  It explains why the faction was also described
as "short-lived", I guess.

On the other hand, the Deniers and Redecorators are *not* mentioned in the
Affiliations FAQ.  I found those names on another supposedly complete
faction list--one that is certainly very long, but was compiled much later.

Now, one would think that, if people were using the terms "Deniers" and
"Redecorators" as faction names, they would have been familiar in 1995-1996.
I mean, both terms relate directly to controversies were current at that
time; so one would expect the names to come from then, too.  People would
have put them in their sigs.  (Having said that, though, the list doesn't
mention the Thong Throng, either; and that was a current joke faction at the
time, and certainly mentioned in both posts and sigs.  So who knows?)

"Redecorators" were supposed to be fans who disliked LaCroix's version of
the Raven.  It seems an odd name.  After all, his was the "redecorated'
version of the club.  One would think a faction that hated what he did with
it would call themselves the "Un-redecorators", wouldn't you?
