Comment Policy

Comments represent the opinions of their author and do not necessarily represent the operator of this site.

We may delete any comment at any time for any reason. However, we currently do not pre-moderate comments. We desire and encourage differing views, even critical ones — if you want to discuss the world is flat, we won’t stop you just because it’s false (although it likely will be a short conversation).

Our basic criteria is civility and politeness. If you can’t do that, you’ll likely find your comment disappearing. A few problem areas (though not the only ones):

  • Abusive language.
  • Wildly off-topic.
  • Personal attacks.
  • Foul language.
  • Obvious spam (includes posting the same content over and over).
  • Non family-friendly discussion.

In short, does the comment advance the discussion or contribute something new? Will other people find value or discover something not previously covered? Repeating the same arguments ad nauseam doesn’t provide anyone with any insight, so please don’t do it.

Your comments are your own, however, you grant to the operator of this website a permanent, non-revocable right to use and display them at our discretion.

Since we don’t pre-approve comments (to keep discussion going), if you find any inappropriate comments please let us know as sometimes something might slip through.

To comply with various regulations involving children, minors under the age of 18 (or not of legal age in their jurisdiction) should not submit any information or comments.

Be polite, be civil.
