I am adding a comments policy to this blog. I expect to continue writing about controversial topics, and I encourage people to share their thoughts through comments. That said, I want to make sure that we keep things on the up-and-up. Moving forward:
* Comments need to have to real names. At least, they have to sound enough like real names to fool me.
* Comments need to be on-topic. Some digression is ok.
* Comments need to be constructive. Hostile language is inappropriate. Watch the tone, too.
* Comments can’t be spam. Including a relevant link or two is fine, but advertising is frowned upon.
Any comments that don’t comply with these rules won’t be approved and won’t appear on the blog.
I apologize if it takes me a day or two to approve comments. I will try to stay on top of them, but sometimes life gets in the way.
If you post a comment and want to know why it hasn’t appeared after a day or two, email me at email@example.com.
