Newbie Questions

No, really. What's the difference between factions, please?

I've done a search of the forums, and every time the question is asked, it is ignored or evaded:

Does it matter which faction you choose to earn rep with (starting with documents)? Is there some advantage to choosing a particular faction over the others? What is the real difference between the three factions?

All the "answers" I've found have covered only how to gain rep with a faction (losing it with others) and that you should focus on one, but the difference between the specific factions is never explained.

Thanks, Chen, but I was actually asking about the Arcanum Brotherhood, La Cosa Nostra, and the third that I can't remember at the moment, lol.

Or is that what you mean, and you didn't refer to them by their faction names? O.o
