Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As i'm thinking about other parts of the real-time (pre-blog) novel experiment which might be appropriate here, i think i need to know more about whether there is a space on ET for more "literary" diaries (for lack of a better word)?

Most of the posting here is decidedly political, economic and relating to events and trends in daily reality.  Poemless, as one example, brings a very literary style to her view of Russia, and its hot leaders.  She's not alone, but it's relatively rare here.

So, do we want weirder stuff here?  Since i'm the one asking, do we want what i consider literary experiment (and others would consider drunken madness) to interfere with the cogent discussion that is the hallmark of ET?

I think positively about the breadth of readership here, but i would not want to undercut ET's attempt at being taken seriously, which is so damned important to me as well.  Obviously i came here first because of windpower/energy issues, but as i've slowly come to get a feel for what's here, i'd like to push the borders.  But if that's a cost for ET, then no way.
