The question above was asked yesterday on our publishing forum. Here is a more detailed response to that question:
We are a combination team from academia and journalism. We believe in truth in publishing accounts of past human activities. We do not support propaganda, nor vanity publishing for profit, and our Blog is free to all to read as a public service in the public interest. Therefore we denounce those who mislead others for personal financial gain, no matter who they are.
Clearly we upset a LOT of people, even though in one sense, that is not our objective. But in another sense, that is our objective! That is not a contradiction, it is the differentiation between accurate reporting of facts in evidence, and sloppy, make-believe hack-writers who are in the vanity publishing business to make money.
Our Blog contents are free of charge to you, and we ask for no form of identification from our readers. It is what it says that it is: an investigation into past events performed as a public service in the public interest.
We began our trek into past events decades ago.
Because we are a team of different nationalities; backgrounds and age groups, we therefore began our combined trek using different paths in order for us to come together at this moment in time in this venture. Some of our publications appear in newspapers; some in magazines and some in academic journals, but unless we have a reason for doing so in a given Blog entry, we do not necessarily relate them here.
As previously stated, our findings will appear later in a commercial book form, just as some have already appeared in daily newspapers, specialist magazines, and both academic journal and book formats. Our timetable for publication is based solely upon completion of work, and not upon a contrived timetable.
