(If you want an indication of that look at Trad books on Amazon. In so many cases, Amazon doesn't even stock them. Yes, second hand Amazon Marketplace dealers do,  ... but Amazon itself. No - it apparently sees so little money in them, they don't even bother.)

I hear your pain about this Vox and am glad that you express it.  I am very interested in discussions on how we can do more, which I am also trying with my own humble website compared to FE ...  

I don't think there's anything anyone can do anymore, really. Folks seem to be satisfied with how things are. As far as FE goes, aside from some lovely and appreciated financial help and the subscribers that keep this place on the internet, I can't catch a break of a sort that'd allow for forward movement, so it's pretty much "this is as good as it gets," I think.

Quote: Part of the problem here Vox is you are a LEADER. Not everyone is called to that. Leadership is lonely ...

I'm not a leader; I just write stuff. Rather, I wrote stuff when I had the time.

On the other hand, leaders can educate us. I am very genuinely interested in being educated. For example, regarding this:

Ideally, if you had time, Vox, I  would like to hear much, much, MUCH more about this. Perhaps you would fear like it would seem like bragging. But I would be interested in specifics to help me gauge things. For example, what kind of folks are we talking about here?

Mainly Protestants?

Mainly lapsed Catholics? Or NO Catholics to traditionalists?

Agnostics, New Agers, Atheists?

Mostly Prots to Catholicism, and Catholics to Tradition. If the site stays up, I'd like to write a section for atheists/agnostics/seculars someday if I ever can, though.

Quote: You are a leader in this field and I appreciate you educating us ... in part because I want to emulate you.

Ha, don't emulate ME, for gosh sakes. Have a life and be happy instead.

Thanks for clarifying Vox.

To clarify what I meant about Leader/emulate ...

You may not be a leader in a normal sense. But I see enormous INITIATIVE on your part - which amounts to leading.

And I am particularly interested in the leading of people to tradition ... what I said about Amazon and traditional Catholic books pains my heart.

This is what I want to emulate, your success in leading people to tradition, expanding awareness about tradition, creating a larger group of people who understand these things, thereby the demand for TLM etc ...

On the internet, you do seem to have a leading role in that - and that is why your original comment vis-a-vis EWTN and Catholic Answers interested me so. Given that EWTN and Catholic Answers are not traditionalist, I ask myself is it possible that in terms of traditional Catholicism, you have THE leading role (??) Don't know. Just asking myself ... and now I suppose you and everyone else.
