Rules for posting comments

Rules for posting comments on this blog

Given the topic this blog deals with, and the emotional responses that it appears to elicit among the faithful who may not find the content palatable, I am formulating some rules for posting comments.

  1. Offering advice: Pointing out deficiencies in the writing is generally acceptable, if done respectfully and without the intent to harass. Otherwise your advice will not be posted.
  2. Disagreeing with the author: If you disagree with the content here, your comments will be posted, provided they are respectful, related to the article, and provided they have depth of content. We reserve the right to delete emotional, fanatical rants, fallacious arguments, comments posted out of the desire for a fight, etc. Rule of thumb- think before you leap, otherwise save your breath.
  3. Questions: Post questions as you like but in a respectful manner. They will be answered for sure. Questions should be related to the content although it is recognized that this may not always be possible.
  4. Attacking individuals: If you have a problem with an individual, keep it to yourself or express it to the person directly. Comments that are veiled, sarcastic or direct attacks on specific individuals will not be posted. You will get the benefit of doubt once. After that, you will be blocked.
