This site contains material mostly written by myself, plus substantial input from persons of extraordinary firsthand knowledge and experience, and links to writings of the latter. I have nowhere near enough experience to write comprehensively: if you have material to contribute, emphatically including corrections and disagreements with anything here, please email it and I'll post it, as long as it is appropriate.
