Crowley was a very interesting fellow. Why is this not in mainspace? Even in its present somewhat stubby state... hey, a lot of other articles in mainspace are more stubby than this. (((Zack Martin))) 05:51, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

I'd rather not put it out there until there's at least something in each section. ThunderkatzHo! 06:40, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Good work, Thunderkatz.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 21:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't know that you could call Crowley a "hippie" - the term implies a kind of laziness and dissolution, and, say what you will, Crowley was in no way lazy. I don't know what the proper analogy would be, though; maybe closer to "esoteric libertarian". --Pere Ubu (talk) 17:15, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Homosexual category[edit]

This guy, was a bisexual not homosexual... I think we can make new category? "bisexual". Contractor (talk) 16:56, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

...'low high rank' needs rephrasing - does it mean AC went past the basic ranks but did not become a top-ranker? 86.191.125.179 (talk) 14:08, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

"low" was probably a mistake. Fixed. Petey Plane (talk) 15:50, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Suggestion[edit]

If Dennis Wheatley does not warrant a RW article of his own, perhaps a mention and link to the WP page on this article - see eg [1]. Anna Livia (talk) 14:50, 3 May 2019 (UTC)

So people incorrectly think that a thriller writer was a good friend of Aleister Crowley? Who fucking cares? No. It's a terrible suggestion. Spud (talk) 15:44, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
A sufficiently 'tenuous connection' in the non-WP link to hang a question on: a mention in the '...WB Yeats...' sentence on the occult page would probably suffice. Anna Livia (talk) 19:12, 3 May 2019 (UTC)
