Commenting Policy

So, here's the deal. It's my blog. I get to say whatever I want.

It's not your blog. You don't get to say whatever you want. 

Obviously, I would much rather have all commenters agree with me and tell me that my opinions are the bestest most awesomest ever. Unfortunately, this is the real world, and to some of you I may only be slightly bestest or slightly awesome.

So here are the rules. And they are few and straightforward.

  1. No personal attacks in the comments against participants in discussions. That's just mean and completely unnecessary.
  2. Don't talk out of your ass unless your ass is educated on the topic. Other opinions, such as "Wow" or "I think that..." are always welcome. Uneducated ass-talking? Not so much.
  3. I value the open discussion of current issues. I want solutions to our societal and political problems. But if all you want to say is "You're wrong" without a reasonable explanation as to why? I don't value those types of unproductive discussions.

If you can't follow the rules, your comment may be deleted or moderated, completely at my discretion. Because, did I mention? It's my blog.
