It's surely more a question of the relatively small number of people
(as yet) who *want* to take psychedelics requesting support and advice.
Such a request might come from *me*... and were someone to suggest that
I should be left to die naturally, I would regard that as the height of
callousness and disempowerment :)

Yes. I think u are opposed to the very existence of this group other than
as providing an opportunity for u to change my views to those of your own.
Such is the nature of the paranoid delusions your posts evoke in me :)

I presume the archive will include:

1. an index/introduction to the archive
2. a copy of the charter
3. all the posts that have been made to TWC
4. references to relevant literature and journal articles
5. country by country legal implications (and/or refs to them)
6. pharmaceutical/pharmacological information (and/or refs to it)
7. links/refs to other sympathetic sites

This wouldn't need to be comprehensive initially - once available it would
be easy to see the gaps & then append to it.

But why not put it on the web? Sites are available which I think would
be happy to act as host, and all the html work can be done offline.
(I have pages available at Venus and should there be problems with the
subject matter - which I doubt - then I have access to pages at Hyperreal.)
If wider exposure is required, the URL can be submitted to the various
search engines - I'm willing & able to do this.

A couple of other places worth knowing about is Nicholas Saunders' superb
site at <> mirrored by <>
and the pharmaceutical database at <>.
