Note to readers

March 31, 2021 • 8:00 am

Once again I must remind commenters of two things.

1.) Please follow the commenting Roolz listed here. Follow them scrupulously. If you are new here, read them before you post.

2.) Do not dominate threads. Rule #9 says this:

Try not to dominate threads, particularly in a one-on-one argument. I’ve found that those are rarely informative, and the participants never reach agreement. A good guideline is that if your comments constitute over 10% of the comments on a thread, you’re posting too much.

People are blithely ignoring this. Remember, the thread is for everyone, not for individual people to dominate. It disturbs me to see an individual commenting over and over again, as if they want to control the discourse.

3.) Be civil. Do not call the other commenters names, accuse them of being dishonest, or liars, or any other nasty epithet. If you have a strong disagreement with someone’s ideas, go after the ideas, not the person.

Thank you.
