what and who then defines a "martial arts cult" and what qualifications do you have to define a particular martial art, style, or segment of a martial art or style as a cult?

Dangit, and here I thought this was going to be like the "You know you're a redneck when.." threads.
"You know you're in a McDojo/Cult when your bunkai has a bunkai!"
"You know you're in a cult when your bow to your sensei's father!"
"You know you're in a mcdojo/cult when 9 year old kids are giving you kata advice!"
When one place told me that a certain deceased Sensei J. Jones was the founder, and that I had to drink a cup of poison, and then fight the current sensei to the death, I kinda figured there were cult like tendencies, and would be better off looking elsewhere.:laughing4
