(1) I put out a Call to Arms re Commenting! Many of my readers are having problems posting comments, even when they have Google accounts (something like 1/2 from ZH are .gmail). I especially ask my virtual friend T.M. who was able to comment via Open ID to show us how. I do not know how to do that. Would you (or someone else) tell us how to do that? I will write a special post with such instructions... Thanks in advance! The above Call to Arms is the closest color, FYI, I could get to gold...
(2) The people writing in my Comments sections are almost all via ZH. Two people have asked to be removed from my email list (and I did just that). Although I would encourage you to stay on the list, I am perfectly OK with people even more paranoid than I am, and will take you off the list if you request, although it might take a day or two to do it (the list is at home and at my office). But, I will comply with all such requests.
(3) Similar to (2) above, I will not abuse the email list or any of you in any way. Zero Hedge was set up especially for those wanting to comment in an anonymous way, and I will not violate the trust you have shown in me, especially by having made you jump through the hoops to get here.
(4) I am not going to take ads. Nor donations.
