I receive frequent emails that demand my time, attention, and energy, and I appreciate it all very much. However, it takes a lot of my time to respond to emails/requests that demand resources from me, including my time. These requests include: 100+ pages of theses/dissertations (this is the most common request – I don’t know why) and emails with this other common request, “can you send me a huge-ass list of resources on this topic,” and other serious queries.
So I have now decided that I will no longer entertain any requests that require my labor unless I’m compensated for it. Before you send me such request, please first donate first (link available on homepage – or paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you’ve made your donation, then please feel free to email me and let me know you’ve donated, and I’ll take your requests seriously.
