But, I do know that some people have a different kind of humour, or a way of being 'no nonsense'...not knowing that many don't get the point.
Could that be the case here?
Oh dear, probably not, now that I read some quotes.
I know I'd never have read any further here if I had first come on statements like that.
The very first thing to do, to my mind, is to see that authors take ownership of their opinions - "I think..."; "I believe..."; "To my mind..."; "In my experience..."
And, allow that there may be room for different opinions - "Perhaps..."; "Maybe..."; "If..."; "How about..."
Spirit, I know that you believe that all opinions need to be aired. And, that there may be a very real need for a cash flow, just to keep the CureZone afloat. Websites aren't free, by any means...we all know that.
But, anyone writing in the fashion described, NEEDS THEIR OWN WEBSITE, beyond your responsibility!
And, tell us the facts of life openly. Tell us what this website costs, and ask for our suggestions, and our financial help. We aren't stupid, or without understanding and compassion. Maybe a tiny voluntary contribution from each of us will be all that is needed.
Also, for goodness sake, tell us what you may fairly need for yourself. And, what 'moderators' should be paid. We don't think you should work for free!!!
We are discussing a book, and an e-zine here! Let's put this whole proposition on a self-supporting foundation, THEN begin some kind of gathering of basic information into a one-stop format, or two, or three.
Books, and products, are turning the natural needs of all people into 'business'.
We on the CureZone can't afford that. Those who post their questions and experiences here, without charge, don't need 'experts' to misuse our goodwill for profit.
And we certainly don't need anyone telling us off, or ignoring us, with disdain. That's been done, elsewhere, with disasterous results.
With the deepest respect for your fine intentions, and a wish for your success in every way,
