  •  Super diary & series...nitpickers notwithstanding (4+ / 0-)

    I used to think I had been around the country quite a bit in my time. No more! Every time I read one of your tour diaries, I am blown away by the beauty and diversity of our country and especially the Southwest. What makes your diaries so interesting to me is the combination of your unique and extensive academic and personal knowledge of the region, competent and interesting writing (with a sense of humor), and maps and photos that bring it all to life. When I finished reading this one, like all the others, I wanted to go there tomorrow!

    If you posted these diaries without photos or maps, I regret to speculate that the readership would dramatically decline. I do not quite understand why a couple of folks want to detract from these research and educational diaries by bringing up what seem to be non-issues about photos? In fact, the current thread complaint is not even about copyright, but about attribution which is easily fixed as you note.  And why make a public issue out of it? I believe the personal messaging feature on DKos works just fine for such matters. Anyway, keep up the great diaries and don't let the detractors diminish for one minute your enthusiasm and your dedication to increasing this community's knowledge and appreciation for this great country.

      for your thoughts on this matter. I think it is in some people's nature to fly the pseudo flag of their presumed power and control over others. I have explained my position to others about this sordid nonsense that should have been administered on a higher level, yet someone has a beef and wants to punish. That being said, any more complaints from this person and I withdraw my frequent diaries and will avoid the quagmire and the argumentation. It is simply not my way, though, I think, Land of Enchantment, seems to take this crusade in a personal way that ultimately falls on her shoulders. She risks much by complaining about such a matter. I do not have the patience for such people or such triflings. Mea culpa. But thanks to you and many others in the community for such support given the import of this niche market I seemed to have stumbled onto, and may just soon stumble away from.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
