Those who wish to participate in this site may do so in several ways. Probably the best way is to first, through Facebook, join the associated public group which is “War and Peace – DiscussionTable”. You must first have joined Facebook. The reason for joining the public group on Facebook is to speed our interactions. Facebook will notify the site administrator whenever someone wishes to join, and can notify other members of the group whenever anything is posted to the Facebook group. Otherwise, the site administrator must check the email for this web blog, and that may not occur regularly. Also, through Facebook, others may be notified of posts and comments they may be interested in, but not find without regularly checking this blog. Once the administrator knows of your interest, and can see that you are neither a spammer nor troll, you will receive an email with a password to contribute posts and comments directly to this blog. If, for some reason, you do not wish to go through Facebook, you can also notify the host at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Just email him, Charles, and let him know you are interested in contributing. Once Charles finally finds your email, he will then send you a password allowing you to contribute. This probably seems more complicated than it really is. (Sorry.) We look forward to hearing from you.
