Clarification on the rules regarding "institutional" accounts on Scholar Social 

The reason for the rule is:

1. I refuse to do volunteer IT support work for the likes of Elsevier, and

2. I don't want people using scholar.social as an ad space without actually participating as a member of the community

So, to be clear:

* No accounts for journals (people who happen to be editors of journals are fine, though)
* No accounts for colleges, universities or departments/faculties/etc

However, if you are already a member of Scholar Social, talk to me about starting an account for student organizations, protest movements, etc

That would be something I'm willing to host here

@socrates 100% in support. The humanity of the space is the primary reason I’m on scholar.social in the first place. Thanks for your vigilance.
