Occasionally people come to this blog hoping to find a way to contact me directly by way of making a comment. Indeed, that works—all comments come to me for deciding whether to print them—most I do, although as a rule I don't allow anonymous comments. There are easy to conceive circumstances that would force a person to cloak his or her identity, but in this country, Anonymous too often is a cover for incivility or worse. I support anyone's right to say anything he or she wants as long as they attach to their comments an identifiable nom de plume or nom de guerre.
That said, if you are trying to contact me, do so through a comment, noting whether you want it posted, and including in the body of the message your email address—Blogger does not include your return email address in the comment it forwards to me. It strips them off.
