It's Time for Another Meta-Discussion
The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 16.0067  Thursday, 13 January 2005

[Editor's Note: I have not had the chance to prepare my responses to
this thread, and today I have an eye examination and am very sensitive
to eye drops, so I probably will not be able to before next week. Eric
too is preparing a response to the technical issues that have been
raised. All this said, I feel that I must make a brief statement now. I
appreciate all of the messages that have been sent and the expressions
of support for my work with this list. Yes, I do pay a considerable
amount of money for the software license and commercial Internet fees,
which of course I use as a tax deduction. I am gratified by all of the
offers of financial support, but my understanding is that I cannot
legally accept money unless I incorporate SHAKSPER as a not-for-profit
corporation, something that is far too much trouble for me to bother
with. I am comfortable paying what I pay and my recompense is the
gratitude of the members.]

Hardy...you have to realize that you have a beautiful, high-maintenance
mistress who gives pleasure to your friends - even acquaintances - as well.

As one of your acquaintances, I want to thank you for the pleasure she
gives me regularly. She's good, good, good...yes, Jesus...but none of us
would be able to afford her without you.

So thanks,
Louis W. Thompson

Let's thank Al Magary for the information and for these two suggestions:

 >1. A few Hardy Boys could be recruited to help run SHAKSPER; there could

 >write a paper, teach a class, or fix a roof.
 >
 >2. An annual but non-annoying annual pledge drive might generate more
 >than a few hundred dollars to pay for the necessary technology, with a
 >special drive to pay transition costs.

I'd like to ask Hardy if these are feasible, and to register my vote for
the present format. I wouldn't mind contributing, say, $10 or $20 a
month for SHAKSPER. And, yes, I know that it's worth more than that.

Same here. It's quite simple to set up the feed, too, if you already
have a website; I've added an RSS feed to my personal website (and to
another one that I maintain, as well), so now the teeming hordes of fans
of "Double Falshood" (and now, William Dunlap's 1798 "Andr
