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 donate at this link first (whatever you can). 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.

Thank you!
