I already made a reply to the article in the newsgroup. I'm making a
similar reply here now.

One proposal I made is that Archie Comics start an AOL section comparable
to the one "Disney Adventures" already has, and that they might want to
have Archie's entire comics line (not just Sonic) represented. I also
noted that I would not be participating as I am not an AOL subscriber.
There was favorable response to this idea.

For those without AOL access, perhaps Ratman would be willing to accept
some Sonic-related files at his ftp site. I can make shorter text files
of general interest available through the mailing list software.

I also said that the "Notes From the Net" sounds like a good idea and is
worth a try, as long as they're prepared to get questions like "how do I
send e-mail to John Doe?" and "how do I access the newsgroup?".

I then went on to say that posted messages/articles ought be considered
"not for publication" by default unless permission to publish is
specifically granted. (Someone might intend to grant permission but
forget to do so, so permissions can always be requested as well when
someone has something especially interesting to say.) This section could
also have an editor's comment (like the present Sonic-Grams do) that can
also include "we see on the 'net that someone/several believe(s) _______"
which could come in handy if someone doesn't want their full message
and/or e-mail address printed but ______ is especially interesting.
