We welcome your comments, questions, and support.

Regarding questions, we can’t promise to reply individually to each one; a lot depends on the number of questions we get and our time constraints. At some point we’ll probably post a collection of frequently asked questions on the site, in addition to addressing individual readers’ questions in blog posts (we would post the question with the readers’ permission and protect their anonymity).
