In the light of a recent influx of hateful comments with no substance (including some guy from Pompano Beach, Florida who threatened to rape me – yes, I know your IP address and geographic location and I could sic the police on you if I wanted to, but I don’t think you’re going to go out of your way to come to another country to do so [or you’re just tough talking and would never do such a thing]), I need to establish some ground rules for commenting.
I do not require names or email addresses for comments in an effort to promote more comments and discussion. That said, trollish comments with no substance will not be allowed on this site. You are more than welcome to disagree, post a dissenting opinion, etc. and you will not be censored for doing so. However, you will NOT directly attack another commenter or myself and expect to get your comment posted. I shouldn’t have to be saying this, but I guess I do because some people don’t have any common decency.
These are the rules, and if you don’t want to abide by them, you won’t be allowed to participate. That’s just the way it is.
