Fool’s mountain now accepts open submission
It is often said that we have one mouth and two ears for a reason, which is we should listen twice as much as we talk. It is great that our first ear is working well (we have got over 4,000 comments so far), but we want more feedback from our readers. Moreover, sometimes readers may have topics they want to discuss but we have not covered. So, in order to become better listeners and to let readers speak out more, we just added our second ear to this blog-Open submission for everyone.
To submit a post is simple. Just head to our Publish page and everything there is self-explanatory. The process is almost the same as writing a comment except you have more tools at your disposal (formatting, uploading files, tagging). And of course, you get the steering wheel. 😉 You don’t have to register for an account, although we encourage you to do so. At the very least, please provide a legitimate email address so may we contact you if needed (we won’t publish it).
Obviously, to fight spam and to ensure the quality of this blog, we cannot automatically publish a submission immediately. However, as long as the post is based on, as reader Zuiweng put it, “sound reasoning, reliable sources and mutual respect,” we will publish it. We also guarantee that the content will not be altered without your permission, except perhaps formatting/spelling corrections.
We hope everyone to submit their own posts but we especially encourage readers who disagree with us to do so. We expect every one of our writings to be scrutinized and challenged. As the Chinese proverb goes, “Real gold is not afraid of the fire of the crucible.” If we are wrong, we want to be corrected as early as possible and to learn from our mistakes. If we are right, we’d like to have the luxury to know that our faith is not untested.
Our site is called fool’s mountain for a reason. The East West gap is vast. We are fully aware that we are fighting against overwhelming odds. We truly appreciate people who kindly engage us in open debates. No matter you agree with us or not, in a sense, we are all in the fools’ club. We are both chipping away the mountain of ignorance and misunderstanding. Finally, to steal a slogan from Bob the Builder, I believe with persistence and determination, “Yes we can!”
