Comment policy

Hey guys,

I am a big proponent of free speech, and it hurts me to curb it even slightly.

Which is why this hurts a lot! Here are some rules for commenting:

  • Please refrain from personal attacks against me or other commenters
  • Any religious, political, or regional mud-slinging rhetoric will be removed. If you have a controversial statement to make, make it, and support it with data
  • If you visit the blog, do comment. It is nice to know that there is someone out there!

There! It is that simple. Now I know what you’re thinking:

Why would he discourage the precious few comments he gets with constraints?

Excellent point. That’s another reason this page hurts. We do need to keep this clean though.

  1. It’s good to keep a comments policy… though, on my blog, I find some trolls ignore these suggestions and continue to make personal attacks, and religious and regional mudslinging continues non stop 🙂

    liberalcynic: on my old blog (on blogspot) I had gotten a couple of comments that were off color. So now better safe than sorry.

  2. I try to stay away from political topics ’cause, as you say, I get hurt a lot. So I’ll take a chance and tell you I’m an intelligent, compassionate, economic Conservative. Hopefully we can talk.

So, what do you think?
