    Hello Biffbang! I was wondering if I would be able to mention and accredit you in my research paper. I wanted to get your approval first. Also, if so are you accredited or is this just something you do for fun

      Hi. Feel free to credit me and the site (my name is Ian Thompson by the way). I don’t come from the world of academia – but I’ve been involved in translating works from Isidore Isou and Marcel Mariën for publication.
