Comments policy

Posts that are primarily spam will be deleted. Posts with multiple links, links unrelated to the topic or to sources devoid of credibility also risk triggering spam filters or being deleted.

Comments from readers should primarily focus on responding to the post rather than other comments. Please take extended arguments with other posters elsewhere.

Making surprising or outrageous claims may invite a request for credible sources. Please be prepared to provide them and be ignored until you do.

This blog is a private space. It is not a democracy, with every person having the right to free speech.

Finally, don’t be a jerk, which includes asking me what that means or arguing about the definition. Comments that go beyond that go beyond that threshold and are menacing, harassing or intentionally/gratuitously causing offense to myself or others will not be tolerated and expose you to potential criminal investigation.
