Some readers have expressed concern regarding the steep decrease of the frequency of my posts in the last year. As I explained in June 2015, my research is extremely time-consuming and therefore very expensive. If an interested audience is not willing to support this blog with donations, it will have to be discontinued. The readers' unwillingness to acknowledge the costs of my efforts has massively curtailed the output of my scholarly work. It is that simple. My blog has currently more than 1,000 daily pageviews. If everyone of my readers would donate only one US$, I would be more than satisfied.
