Hello Paul and Kitty,
I'm writing to let you know that one of your hyperlinks is not working. On the webpage: http://selfsip.org/critiques/
when I click on the link Some excerpts from Thoreau it simply takes me to the top of the same page.
[We have used a minor (small) window for many links because they are essentially only references and we did not want the reader to not be able to see the original page from which s/he comes at SelfSIP while reading the referenced link. We have done the same thing for definitions and for literature references within MoreLife. We do this to help the reader not lose track of where s/he is and be able to continue focusing on the original that s/he was reading. This is particularly necessary on the SelfSIP pages which require a lot of focused deep thought. --Paul]

I appreciate your desire to keep your computer functioning at full capability. However, don't accept computer viruses as a fact of reality, a product of a non-thinking nature/universe. They are created by evil thinking/doing people.
You likely have the option to click the Trusted Sites icon (or equivalent) in your browser for MoreLife and Self-SIP. If you don't think you can trust us, then first do your research on us at other locations. That's a viable alternative always open to you and others since we are very public people.
> Here is an example that does not:
Both of these are pure sales sites with a large income stream (perhaps you didn't notice that we don't sell any products on MoreLife.org - or SelfSIP.org), plenty of staff and likely even outside computer software consultants. We are 2 people only from start to finish of everything at MoreLife and SelfSIP - there is no one else behind the scene writing code. If you want to provide coding as a value for value payment (see http://morelife.org/supporting.html
> the way viruses propagate.
> Without them, viruses cannot propagate.
And without people who would do harm to others, without this impractical penchant for a "commons" Internet with mostly flat rate charging and with the help of all those who currently do not socially preference against such doers of harm, there would be no computer viruses.
[And with more people requiring complete mandatory identification of all those with whom they interface. --Paul]

Your "Visualize" lines demonstrate some reasoned thinking on certain subjects - there is, however, much more to the one about "civic duties" and smoking than that snippet even attempts to cover. If you are interested in the foundational principles of liberty (including those related to that snippet), see http://selfsip.org

I received no response to my reply to this person's complaint. BTW s/he isn't the first person with "suggestions" of how Paul and I should do things differently on our websites, but none of these individuals have ever offered to provide any of their time for assistance.
I'll be continuing to explore the site, so if I find anymore links that are not working I'll be sure to let you know.
[By all means please do, since periodically another site will change their coding for a page or simply eliminate content. In either case the link will no longer work and I don't know it unless I happen to check or someone writes me. So I do appreciate being told that a link is not working. **Kitty]
Also, Kitty, I'm still planning to respond to the Candida posting on morelife since I have more news (although, not much more success).
[Please do. I hope that you have updated the Nurse Practitioner you used. If she is serious about her profession she will be interested in helping you solve the problem. If she is not, then you might want to find a replacement. Either way, I hope you will continue to do your own research on the subject. **Kitty]
It may take me a little while as I have been busy recently with much self-exploration.
[Since happiness is the purpose of each individual's life, self-exploration is part of the process for determining how to go about optimally increasing it. The fact that you are doing self-exploration is commendable. Writing one's thoughts can be a very beneficial method for exploring one's self, also referred to as introspection. If you'd like to share what you discover or just bounce some ideas off of us, please feel free to make a post. It is likely than many others will benefit from your experience.
I have used Kitty Reflects in this manner, although I've been so busy with topic-specific articles in the past year (as well as numerous other tasks) that until recently I hadn't made an entry there in many months. I do have another that I'll upload soon that is along the line of self-exploration. **Kitty]
"talk" to you soon,
[Looking forward to it ;>) **Kitty]
