I think the diety should be anonymous, nameless, but it should be imperative 
to create and use as many impromptu names for it as possible. I would also 
consider a rule saying that it is imperative for the faithful to draw 
caricatures of said deity at least once a year, and publish them.

I can see that. Come Monday morning, an admin comes to his workplace, notices 
there's, say, some random leakage of water from a pipe above the server room 
and goes: "oh god, the servers!"
