Post Re: Robert A. Heinlein Commentary Blog
The Facebook group is not available to me since I have no interest in becoming a member, again. I tried Facebook for a short time and found it to be a waste and an annoyance.

As for the blog, I don't have a problem with it in principle. I looked at it and there's not much there yet, but it's only a few days old. It does not seem to offer any advantages over this forum but, unlike James, I don't see any harm in having another area for Heinlein on the web. People will use it or they won't. I can't see it causing anyone who is currently using this forum to stop.

I did like the pictures.

That's my two cents.

Post Re: Robert A. Heinlein Commentary Blog
I really haven't understood why Robert felt the need to start his own blog on the subject. His many insightful comments have always been welcome here and his section on 'Connections' in his blog could have started a very useful thread[1]. From my experience, I doubt seriously that his complaint of search engines not showing the Forum would, would probably apply to his blog as well. How many people will find his blog through search engines? This Forum provides a built-in-readership of 179 members and uncounted number of visitors, most of which probably took a look at his blog, but, may or may not ever return to it.

As for his other contributors, they are certainly welcome to register here, and make a contribution to any of the Fora and/or threads. At least one of them, to my knowledge, is already a member.

If any of them, or anyone else, for that matter, has tried to register and not been confirmed, drop me a note at maikosht@windstream.net letting me know about your difficulty and I make sure that you are confirmed on the next attempt[2].

[1]There has already been a discussion on Lefevre See: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=435&start=10

[2] I have to make a subjective guess as to whether or not a registration attempt is from a spammer. Most of these are obvious, but some are more difficult to determine. I try to balance the side of prevention versus acceptance, and some have gotten past and were deleted as soon as they showed their agenda. It is possible that some have been refused who should have been confirmed. If so, I apologize.

Jim, you do love to tilt at windmills. Does the Heinlein community have people who want to make short, low-content, little intellect required postings about Heinlein? Based on the Facebook activity, yes. How good a job are we doing of attracting the ones who want to write at length? Hmm. Could be better. Or maybe there just aren't more people out there who want to write at length on this topic any more. But if there are, then they gotta find us somehow, and that becomes more likely with Robert's blog, not less. That'll attract search engines and his links back to us will raise our page rank score, and if those people find his site before us and a forum is what they want, then his blog will make it easier for them to find us. That's how finding content on the interwebs works. If the blog is only suited to short content posters then you don't care if they don't come here anyway. What we need to do to get the visitors you want is raise our visibility, and he's just done that.

The total size of the active Heinlein fan base is... not large. We don't need to pick at each other's honest attempts to help. THS did that prior to THC, and that's the sort of factionalization that does hurt, because they ignored us except for the times they ripped us publicly. Even now there are people who pretend that the only thing happening that weekend was a party in someone's hotel room. This is nothing like that.
