I will keep this brief and simple: I have no intention of collecting any personal information from the general readership. I have been burned too many times by others who sell data. I won’t do that. Period.
Personal email correspondence is just that and shall remain so.
Participants who post comments or participate in chats are subject to Substack’s rules. I may need to have your email address in the event of a moderation issue, as discussed in the next section.

All content I write is subject to revision at any time. Announcements will be posted when there are significant changes, such as factual corrections or information that provides additional details or context.

I didn’t decide to take on the work involved here on a whim. If you choose to stick around, and especially if you intend to actively participate, take this seriously so that if we gain traction, others watching will see we should be taken very seriously [6/19/23: already seeing signs of being monitored].

Behave like adults who share and strive for a common purpose. If the collective can’t do that, know I am willing to pull the plug on this entire proposition at any time. Life is short and getting shorter. There are actual, relaxing things I could do with my time and money than this in my impending retirement.
