Nooneofanyimport, xpat, mountainbear, MG, DefendUSA, D.J., Sue, and dumbasdirt have all been sent “author” invites. Remember:
With great power comes great responsibility.
If you don’t want to bear such an awesome burden, I suppose you can decline the invite. I don’t see the option for forcing you to be my Puffington Host and creating material for this site which will later be sold for hundreds of millions of dollars, not a nickel of which will ever cross your eyes.
If you’re a non-“author”ized regular here and want to become an unpaid pixel monkey, say the word.
