Robert Tragesser asked about how to cite FOM postings.
Does anybody know how citations to other Internet forums are handled?
Are there any bibligraphic conventions for this type of citation?
In the meantime, I have the following suggestions. FOM as a whole can
be cited by noting that FOM is an automated e-mail list for discussing
foundations of mathematics, created by Harvey Friedman and Stephen
G. Simpson, maintained and moderated by Stephen G. Simpson. You could
cite the web address http://www.math.psu.edu/simpson/fom/. Individual
postings can be cited by author's name, title, date, and the web
address of the posting.
In other words, the body of your article will contain citations such
as FOM [1] and Simpson [2], referring to your bibligraphy, which will
contain the following entries:
1. FOM, an automated e-mail list for discussing foundations of
mathematics, created by H. Friedman and S. G. Simpson, maintained
and moderated by S. G. Simpson, 1997-1998,
http://www.math.psu.edu/simpson/fom/.
2. Stephen G. Simpson, Aristotle's critique of Platonism in
mathematics, FOM [1], 22 January 1998,
http://www.math.psu.edu/simpson/fom/postings/9801.264.
