The comments policy on this blog is fairly self-explanatory:
1.) No spam. Obviously.
2.) No trolling. Please don’t pick fights with people just for the fun of it.
3.) No ad hominem attacks. You are more the free to disagree with anything I or anyone else says here. However, any name-calling, personal accusations, or attempts at character assassination will not be tolerated.
4.) Avoid excessive profanity. I won’t ban your IP address because of an errant four-letter word, but let’s try to keep things family-friendly.
5.) Avoid openly hostile comments. It’s easy to get defensive on blogs like this, as they involve a lot of debate. But let’s keep the hard-core anger to a minimum.
6.) Stay on topic. A little bit of topic drift is going to happen. But don’t let a conversation about Boston accents turn into a conversation about the Boston Red Sox.
7.) Snarky comments from folks who haven’t read the post. I’m all for argument, but if you’re being snarky and it’s clear you haven’t even read the post you’re commenting on, I’m deleting your comment.
