When I started this site um…..many….years ago….(I honestly can’t remember) I wanted to use a domain of “non-prophet” or “non-prophet-consortium” or similar. Sadly, everything I was thinking of was taken. I finally stumbled upon “propheteer”, thinking it a clever pun on “profiteer” – though I seem to recall it being suggested to me rather than coming up with it on my own. Regardless, I thought it was a pretty good name, particularly as it was short and kept to the general theme. I had no idea that being a propheteer was an actual…thing. Wikipedia always says the darndest things.
(These days I find myself kinda wishing I’d chosen something else. Propheteering is all well and good, but it’s confusing as heck to spell, religious nuts look at you funny when you give them your email address, and while I’m still all about the Principia, I’m probably one of 5 people I know that gets the reference. And I had to explain it to 4 of them.)
