Impertinent Question

Why would a journal that does not accept submissions by email (and in fact makes that known with a big red subhead that ends with the ominous "THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.") have a facebook page?

I mean, either you're new-media-friendly (is email even new-media? maybe it's old-new-media) or you're not—I don't understand the inconsistency. This isn't a big deal, but just a little confusing.

Off-topic: I'm very sad to hear about the death of philosopher Arne Næss, whose book Ecology, Community and Lifestyle I've really been meaning to read.

One thing about Næss that you can't say about most philosophers: he was for a time the uncle-in-law of Diana Ross—as in The Supremes' Diana Ross.
