Clearly A Cult, Ctd

A reader is on to us:

Charismatic, bearded, and sometimes hysterical leader?  Check.  Devoted followers hanging on his every word and begging him to take their money?  Check.  An unaccountable leadership cadre controlling all communications among the group?  A hefty dose of religious mumbo-jumbo?  A whole coded in-group language?  Check, check, check.  The Dish is clearly a cult.
