The purpose of this page is to provide methods of contact and an overall philosophy.

Why You Should Contact Me

You should contact me so that we each “know” one more person. Just introduce yourself. Doesn’t matter how casually. Perhaps we even met quickly in a park one random day. I’ve only visited about ten countries, but I love having diverse opinions and knowing people from all over the world.

Who knows, I might even be able to connect you with someone else or help out! And on that note: I like helping people (one reason for the multiple /health pages of the website), so perhaps I could help you with something.




Methods of Contact

Public methods:

  • Email: johnfialblog [at]
  • Twitter: @johnfial

At this time, I check this email regularly and will probably reply within a week or so.

Note: my Facebook account is for private use. I am not an “800 ‘friends'” kind of person, although I love having thousands of acquaintances, that’s not how I use facebook specifically. As such, please respect this and do not search for me, send a friend request or message me using the service unless we actively see each other in person or we’ve spoken in person to “keep in touch” (read: stalk each other’s photos). Thank you for understanding!



Constructive criticism, please.


Random comments:

Example of worthless criticism:           Your site design/theme sucks!

Example of constructive criticism:      I think the _____ theme/design would fit your site better.


The latter forces you to do some work for me, gives me a suggestion to improve, and out of respect, I’ll very likely consider the change. Unconstructive criticism will be dealt with accordingly.


Scientific comments:

If you’re commenting on the /pills, /lithium, /health or similar pages, please provide a few sources/references. Why are you saying what you’re saying? Any background comments will help me look into the matter faster and respond in a far more educated way.
