AM JUST one man with
no staff. I have done all the writing, all the design, and all the programming for this website
without a sponsor. No one pays me for the thousands and tens of thousands
of dollars of labor I have putand continue to putinto my websites.
in all of this, I refuse to obscure simple and holy truth with advertising.
Nevertheless, I am willing
to provide this website for your benefit and for the benefit of
anyone else in the whole worldbut answering questions takes an enormous
amount of my personal time. Therefore, if you want me to answer your e-mail
question, I require that you pay for my time. As Saint Paul said, A
worker deserves his pay (1 Timothy 5:18).
the first 10 years of my other website
( A Guide to Psychology and
its Practice ), I did not charge anything to answer
questions; I just asked for a donation of gratitude. Even though I rarely
received any donations, I still answered every question. Well, around 2006
I was getting about 20 questions a day, it was taking me several hours a
day to write answers, and I was receiving almost nothing in donations. I
had to stop. I couldnt afford to give away so much time for
youre looking at the fallout from all of this: an obstacle course to
separate the serious from the curious, and a
requirement that you make a donation to this website before I
will respond to your e-mail question.
for those who have ears to hear, theres even a psychological lesson in
this: its about my setting
boundaries, not about my being rude.
