Comment Policy

1. Debate. Discuss. Feel free to disagree, but keep it civil. This doesn't mean that satirical or sardonic remarks won't be allowed, but rude or hurtful epithets, particularly those launched without substance, will be deleted.
2. Irrationally slanderous or sexually explicit comments will be deleted. Comments containing threats of physical violence will be deleted. Comments containing excessive or gratuitous profanity will be deleted. I will not delete a post simply because someone finds it to be offensive, but boorish behavior will not be tolerated. It's really simple, folks. Be decent. Be mature.

3. Spam, advertisements or comments whose sole purpose is to direct traffic to other sites will be deleted.
4. Stay on topic.
5. Anonymous comments will not be allowed.

Finally, I reserve the right to delete comments or close comments on posts for any reason, regardless of whether or not they conform with the above.
