First of all, welcome to the site!. Yes, you can comment on the blog without joining-but since you have decided you want more, you actually joined up. Here’s a few rules: no spam, no trolls. You can promote a blog or an item, but please make it relevant and on-subject, if not on topic. This site will/is going to be moderated for ugly stuff-but I have faith that this site will attract mostly intelligent and positive people.
Lastly, if you want to stay a member, you need to make an intelligent rely on the blog-I need to know that you are an actual reader who is interested. No comment, no membership-and I will purge.
For now, everything will be free. I will do fundraising to pay for hosting and even some personal needs-but it’s donation only for now. I can do ads-but I would prefer to do without them for the sake of simplicity and accessibility.
