Actually, if you look at the history of IAS, you'll see the names:
"Tom Ray, Dr. Tom Croat, Dan Nicolson, James French"
As to writing for the newsletter, yep, everyone should contribute to it. I would certainly want to if possible, it's just that it's very fast and easy to post articles on the website rather than wait. In the ant world, what I do is submit it to online newsletters then post it on my site as well once it's published.

Curious and interesting, if somewhat puzzling with its
tantalizing gaps on ʽwhy meconostigma?ʼ. I big drop downward from
canopy to the ground snakes that I know in the group, that can only stand up
about head height to a basketball player.
But the big question: who is this Dr. James French,
and why is he not writing for Aroideana
if he is eminent in the aroid community? This is an editorʼs viewpoint, I
suppose, so just put it down to a post-prandial dyspepsia and ignore the
question. Perhaps more to the point, why isnʼt everybody, or anybody,
writing for us either in the Newsletter or in Aroideana. These are THE places
beyond the web (and less ephemeral than a website) to communicate with aroiders.
