Commentators’ Guidelines

image 4I believe in freedom of speech,but also in responsibility in commenting behavior, and in avoiding unnecessary legal entanglements resulting from abusive, illegal, obscene, or libelous commentary.

While you are free to criticize others in the comment threads of this and other of my sites,  keep the language acceptable and the content legal and civil. Links to objectionable websites are unacceptable except in the proper context of a discussion thread, and may be redacted.

Comments linking to sites of an illegal nature or containing threats of physical harm or verbal abuse of others will be deleted and the commentator permanently banned from posting on this site.

While I strive for presenting material on this site in as truthful a manner as possible, it is impossible for me to guarantee the complete factual accuracy of the material and at least some of it may be in error. If this is the case, and you can point out to me the error, and a credible source, agreed on by both of us, that shows it, I shall happily correct the inaccuracy and give you credit for pointing it out to me in an entry mentioning and crediting you.

I have a low tolerance for trollery and asshattery. I reserve the right to use any comment posted on this site in a manner that may be comedic, illustrative, exemplary of some variety of silliness, informative, or otherwise enlightening or entertaining to other readers on this site.

You have been warned.
