Happy Valentine's Day! Here's hoping this brings your heart's desire, even if
it's solitude. MrsBlue and I think we will celebrate with a romantic night of
take-out Chinese food.
Thanks again to everyone who is participating in the ongoing discussions of our patronage
plans, including the further feedback yesterday
to my post Wednesday
. A new sentiment emerged in
yesterday's comments, as some expressed a willingness to support the site while
continuing to allow ads to run once we get the ad-free version going. Frans and
I discussed this, and it seems likely we'll be able to offer patrons the option
of not opting out of ads if they so desire. Some also expressed interest in being
able to pay for patronage via check. Please offer your outlook on this to help
me figure out if I need to look into getting a post office box. We're not sure
when all this will get underway, but next week is a distinct possibility.
