My articles aim to serve as live documents that are updated whenever necessary rather then static runestones. I try to keep my articles to-the-point by spending significant time to make them shorter. Quality is prioritized over quantity. As I am willing to update my analyses or views when presented with new data, I would appreciate corrections, suggestions, or general comments.
