Just a brief note to any non-member watchers, cause I know you're out there .....
So forthwith, I'm going to revise the whole membership dealy so that it more accurately reflects the way things have been working out -- or not -- in terms of posting/commenting -- that is, so that anyone can join without writing an application essay (just the typical background check, you know...) , and anything more will only be required if you want to post articles of your own and I haven't already given you full clearance out of immense regard for your insights and communication skills. Which I do have a tendency to do at times, 'cause I like encouraging people w/ good ideas.
While I am not atall averse to collecting useful embedded stuff -- essay, media, links to other sites, articles, resources, etc., the primary focus of this FAQ site is to provide original informative articles, or at very least original commentary and exploration/clarification of material already published online or off. Content that you won't find duplicated word-for-word on the average webgroup, site or Google search. Just drop-posting other people's work that you happen to like and leaving it at that doesn't cut it -- that's why "posting access" actually means something here, as it means that you're acknowledged to be capable of sharing your own knowledge and experience -- and reactions and opinions -- articulately with others.
As is stated on the profile page, this LJ comm is the more public-and-publishing counterpart to a private group on Yahell, which of course has a fair amount of overlapping membership. The private group's more informal, argumentative, controversial and suitable for personal sharing, research, discussion, social networking, etc., seeing as it's not also trying to be a respectable and credible introduction to its own field of scholarship. The line's a tricky one, so there's a lot of crossposting of the theoretical stuff especially, but I value the response and input from any/all sides, and generally consider it the more the merrier.
And if you have any questions, concerns, observations, etc, please feel free to drop me a line in reply here, on my email, aureantyev-at-yahoo-dot-com, or on Yahell IM under the handle of aureantes.
