I read the "Catholic Answers" magazine, and in the new ones they often advertise to (paraphrase) "discuss this article online at forums.catholic.com", etc.
In the edition from November/December 2011, I came across an article by Fr. Brian Harrison O.S. (emeritus) which I thought was really worthy of discussing; but the article itself was not online -- which contradicts the ability to discuss the article with people who do not have the article handy -- or may have disposed of the magazine after giving it a cursory reading.
I generally do not cut and paste more than a sentence or two from material which is still in copyright, and decided to wait until the next magazine came out since previous issues do appear on catholic.com in linkable form.
However, although the next edition of the Magazine has (long since) come out -- exhaustive previous missing articles are not listed online, and from my cursory attempts at searching www.catholic.com
I think there is a gross inconsistency in when or even if articles or particular issues will be listed.
Is Catholic Answers interested in supporting / facilitation of discussions of their articles; and if so, to whom would I offer a suggestion/beg a pathway to getting in contact with the author or magazine copyright holders so that larger than 1 or 2 sentence portions of the article could be quoted for discussion in a thread dedicated to a particular article?
I see a profile link to Fr. Harrison, but no way to attempt to P.M. or to contact him such that he would know I am not simply another spam emailer.... and no guidelines concerning the internal usage of the magazine contents on the website. I would think this is an admin/moderator issue as it deals with the stated intentions of catholic.com through their magazine and would appreciate some guidance on the matter and how to approach it.
