OK, not that any of us like this part, but it is necessary to establish some rules for posting comments on this site.
It is not our intent to limit anyone’s ability to comment. Everyone is welcome, and all different points of view are appreciated. We will not delete comments, UNLESS…
You post spam. Our spam filter is pretty good at trapping spammers, but all comments will be moderated the first time you post something, so if we think it’s spam, off you go! After you have posted once, you should be able to comment without moderation, but in our experience, you will get trapped if you post too many links, so be aware of that.
You’re personally abusive. We all get passionate about the topic at hand, and honest debate and disagreement are welcomed and encouraged. That said, if your reply to someone is merely to call them names, your comment will be deleted. Period.
You post racist or anti-Semitic remarks. No, your link to Stormfront will not be accepted. No, your paranoid claims of Zionism and references to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion will not be allowed to remain, and will probably be ridiculed. A lot. And G-d help you if you use the “N-bomb” or any other racist invective!
Other than that, have at it. We encourage healthy debate. We like disagreement, even. But that also means that whatever you post is subject to criticism/ridicule if warranted. (Note we said “whatever you post,” not “you personally.”)
