Welcome to the wild, woolly world of internet commenting. This is a quick primer on my commenting policy.
I moderate comments to ensure that conversations stay focused and friendly. My promise to you: I'll keep the conversation open and diverse. All pertinent, articulate, and appropriate comments will pass go, whether they agree with me, disagree, or raise a different point entirely.
Here's what will not pass go: anything that's waaaay off-topic, plagiarized, illegal, defamatory, threatening, obscene, profane, or considered hate speech. Let's debate ideas until we're blue in the face. But any personal attack on me or other readers will not see the digital light of day.
A final note: If you have an issue, question, or topic that needs my undivided attention, please feel free to email me directly.
Thank you for helping me keep my website a welcoming place for all.
