As of today, "HBL" stands for "The HB Letter." The address is:
This new entity is a quantum leap forward. While preserving our 1990s-based system of emails, we are greatly expanding our online presence. HBLetter.com subsumes the present HBL, as its blog, and gives you a Member Forum--with instant posting (a la social media). I don't moderate the Member Forum--you do. The buzzword for this is "community moderation." For each post, there's a "Report Abuse" button, and readers should use it to notify me when they think that something inappropriate has been posted on the Member Forum.
In contrast to social media, HBL's Forum is for intellectual
discussion--polite, friendly discussion of philosophical and cultural
issues. Since the presumption is that Forum posters are allies in the
intellectual battle, the Forum should be a benevolent mini-universe.
