Feedback Desired, and Notice of Absence

Here's where I really would like comments--but don't expect a response until May 28 or later, because I'll be Internet-free until then.
(That's also true if you send email to my usual email addresses regarding this stuff: Expect delayed response.)

Specifically: If you read Cites & Insights and want to see it continue, which of these possible means of support would interest you?

  • Donation: You might make a PayPal donation.
  • Volumes as Books: You or your library might pay $30-$35 or so for full volumes, 8.5x11, with index, in perfect-bound print form (via a publish-on-demand service).
  • Value-added Books: You or your library might pay $25-$35 (depending on length) for 5x8 perfect-bound books consisting of copy from Cites & Insights gathered thematically or in other meaningful ways, with introductions and updates as appropriate.
  • Tchotchkes: You might buy caps, coffee mugs, or other nonsense with appropriate logos and stuff.

    The published query included the possibility of paid separate-article-in-HTML posting, but I think that's really improbable. Sponsorship is still possible, if unlikely.

    Feel free to reply here if that's easier than sending me email at [name] wcc [domain] notes.rlg.org.

  • With fear and loathing...

    I'm still not ready for a weblog, but playing around with a "weblog lite" might make sense.

    Don't expect loads of postings, and for sure don't expect the stuff you'd find in Cites & Insights. If that's an experiment (still, after 4.5 years), this is really experimental.

    For starters, an apology: I used Rightwing Coven (or Rightwing Cabal, or RC something) within an extended set of comments elsewhere on this august site. It was an unfortunate shorthand. I did not mean to include all those at LISNews who are either to my right politically or actual "conservatives" (in quotes, because a lot of today's conservatives would give fits to constitutional conservatives like Barry Goldwater).

    I really meant a certain quartet that I now think of as Dopey, Grumpy, Grouchy, and the Ghost of David Burt. And I'm not sure the term was warranted even for that group.

    Of course, as a devoted Buffy fan, I should also apologize for another reason: "Coven" is an appropriate name for a group of Wiccans, I assume, and I shouldn't insult those groups.
