A disease fairly common in fandom, in which the operations of a club itself becomes the whole point of the club and the center of its members' fannish lives: Not what the organization was set up to do, not socializing, not running a convention or publishing a fanzine, but just turning the wheels that keep a club running.
The Enchanted Duplicator is famously dismissive of clubs whose members delude themselves that their internal activities constitute Trufandom, as Jophan encounters first the Circle of Lassitude and later a club whose members are either arguing bitterly or marching pointlessly up and down, both of which try to impede him on his journey.
