I agree!!!!!!
After all , a great
deal of the best stuff  on
faults is in the literature,
and I don't mean textbooks.
In addition a great deal of
an understanding of faults is gained
through conversation in the field or,
why not, on the internet!

For example, how would one determine
if fluid pressure is the controlling 
mechanism for overcoming friction or
is it the width of the fault (distribution of 
strain across a fault) , particularly in
thrust faults.
