no, i'm not microphone shy. I wouldn't mind being a guest at some point, but I don't have a microphone etc. and there's very few people that are interested in bituminous coal. I'm not the best person to have as a guest- I don't have anything close to the knowledge that some members here have on anthracite stokers/stoves/sources etc and would not be very helpful when it came to that. At some point in the future it may be a good idea, but not right now.
