There has, once again, been a significant gap between my last posting and this one. Despite my best efforts, I grossly underestimated the time requirements associated with parenting, being a PhD student, and being an acceptable spouse. Now that I’ve finally completed my PhD coursework, I hope to commit more time to Everyday Ethics. That said, I want to note a few changes to the site, most of them methodological.
1. In order to expedite the process of getting things up to speed, I have approved all of the comments that were awaiting moderation. This means that the occasional advertisement for penis-enlargements or cut-rate antibiotics from Canada may appear. My apologies for this. As I come across them, I will remove them. Feel free to contact me to notify me of any objectionable material that you encounter. Also, I will not be responding to any past comments, as part of my effort to “cut my loses” regarding past time lost, and move forward from here.
2. Everyday Ethics has traditionally been a short-article-based forum. This has been a contributing factor to the challenges I’ve faced in maintaining the site. That said, I will begin posting short blurbs, in addition to longer articles, in an effort to maintain a regular flow of content. Expect at least two postings per week, though I will try to do more as I am able.
3. Feel free to email me with information about philosophy, whether it be a conference, a good article that you’ve read, a question that you have, or anything else that may be of interest to the philosophical community (by which I mean anyone who thinks about philosophical issues, rather than just academic philosophers. My goal is to create a forum for conversation about the intersection between philosophical ethics and everyday life.
That said, I hope you will enjoy the upcoming changes, and I look forward to hearing from you on the comment boards.
