Frequently Asked Questions
Your outraged and puzzled questions answered here!
OK, since Iíve just very recently started this site, there arenít actually any questions just yet.† However, if people were to ask questions, I imagine they might sound something like the ones below.† If you have any questions of your own, please email me at email@example.com to get them answered.
Q:† So, you said on the ďWhat is this?Ē page that youíre not trying to convince anybody of anything.† Why are you putting out this magazine, then?
A:† Iím doing it because I find the topics interesting.† This gives me an excuse to do some more research about them, and to share what I think is interesting with other people.†
Q:† Iím a teacher and want to use this with my classes.† What kind of permission do I need?
A:† If you want to use this with my classes, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you an electronic version that can be printed and made into a little booklet (as opposed to the online version which is meant for easy screen viewing).† Please feel free to use this with your classes!
Q:† Where is the magazine available?
A:† Mostly online, as itís hard for me to do much distribution on my own.† However, as word of mouth spreads, Iím hoping to get distribution to increase.† For a copy of your own, visit the ďGet a copy of WTBI MagazineĒ link. †To become a distributor of this magazine (assuming you have someplace to distribute it), email me at email@example.com.
Q:† Iíd like to distribute your magazine in my coffee shop / infoshop / crack house / place of business.† How can I do this?
A:† Email me and weíll work something out.† There will be no cost to you as a distributor.
Q:† I found a copy of the magazine somewhere.† How much is it to get more copies?
A:† It doesnít cost anything.† If you want more copies, visit the ďGet a copy of WTBI MagazineĒ link.
Q:† If WTBIM doesnít cost anything, where does the money to make it come from?
A:† I see this as a hobby of mine.† Since all hobbies cost money, I donít mind paying for it.† Plus, as an added bonus, photocopies are pretty inexpensive, so it doesnít cost much anyway.
Q:† Where do you get the ideas for the magazine?
A:† I read a lot and when I find something interesting, I usually want to learn more.† Thereís no telling what will be next.
Q: †I read the magazine and disagree with something you wrote.
A:† Then email me and let me know.† If Iíve said something incorrect, Iíd like to fix it.
Q:† I read the magazine and you forgot to discuss something I think is very important.† Why did you leave it out?
A:† Space considerations cause me to limit myself to what I think are the main points.† I donít pretend that what I write it complete in all details.† I would always encourage people who are interested in anything I write about to not take the magazine as a main resources, but only as a starting point for further research.
Q:† When I read the magazine, I found your treatment of the topic to be biased toward one position.
A:† This is unintentional.† Let me know specifically what you find offensive and biased and Iíll take it into consideration.
Q:† Why would you ever think you were enough of an expert to write a magazine about [some topic]?
A:† Thatís my whole point.† I donít think Iím an expert.† If you donít like something Iíve written, email me with specific things you find to be incorrect and Iíll look into them to make sure I havenít screwed up.
Q:† I hate your [expletive deleted] magazine and I hate you.
A:† Lighten up.† Itís just a magazine.
