Comments Standards

Comment Standards

I invite comments on because readers may have valuable information to contribute to the Site. Let’s set a high standard for reader comments and involvement.

One important and positive aspect of a web site is the capability for readers to share what they think about a particular topic. A negative aspect is when those comments are off topic, juvenile, snarky, offensive, irrelevant, or self-promotional in nature. At my discretion I will not publish information deemed not to be a worthy addition to content. Remember, it is my site and my content. I tend to follow this rule very loosely but there have been comments that have just not been very civil so they tend to be the first to get removed.

Some Commenting Rules

Comments which contain personal attacks or question the motives of the author or other commenters will be deleted. If you think an article or a commenter is wrong, feel free to say so and to argue why you think so. We welcome differing views, but not those that call people idiots, stupid, corrupt, or contend that they are taking positions because they are evil or immoral. You are free to say another commenter is wrong but you must state why. Personal attacks on other commenters or Myself will be deleted.

I also won’t allow comments containing allegedly factual claims that I know to be wrong, or which I simply lack the time or resources to verify. If you think something is evil or a cure all, put those theories on your own web site. may delete comments that are considered racist, sexist, or derogatory to any religion, sexual orientation or ethnic group, or that is consider to be offensive.

I have not had to ban anyone and hope to continue that streak going forward. Thank you for visiting.
