This blog was down for several days this month because someone forgot to pay for the domain name or hosting or something rudimentary like that.
The accompanying website has been down for a long time for reasons unclarified.
I suspect that with the demise of Irreantum, membership in the Association for Mormon Letters is at a low, low ebb. If so, the number of people who have standing to demand that the AML organization respond to them are dwindling few.
Me, I paid up for a lifetime membership, so I definitely have standing, but who can I talk to about any of these things?
The president’s far away in Hawaii and Jonathan manages this blog, but other than that, I know nothing other than that Jonathan had to contact some mysterious other person to get things running again.
About a year before Irreantum died, there was some asking from the then-current editors for help, but since then I can’t recall hearing anything from anyone about what’s needed. Maybe it’s because I can’t get to the annual meeting. I don’t know. What I do know is that this blog seems to be the only way I get news, but it’s written by members and friends of the AML—not leaders thereof.
Who’s accountable? If I want to help or I want to complain or I want to be part of the solution or I just want any sense of anything, where do I go?
I’m not looking for someone to crucify; I just have no idea what’s going on.
What is the AML anyway, and who runs it?
