*By clicking submit after choosing this option, you still be registered as a member (or VIP if you're paying), but you won't be subscribed to the email list. There's still good reasons to subscribe, up to and including that I am highly likely to forget to post on Substack. Heh. Otherwise, if you're just looking for the free newsletter, just close the window and go to Substack. Sorry. They suck so I can't automate it.
Don't worry, you can control who sees what. I need your proper name for billing though.
