Comment moderation policy

Contrary to the delusions of rightwing bloggers who troll leftwing blogs looking to stir up trouble, the first amendment does not mean that blog owners have to allow the spewing of venom on their personal blogs. I choose not to approve comments that I consider namecalling (a rightwing specialty), a personal attack, patently untrue, or otherwise ugly in spirit. If you want to express a contrary opinion, I’ll be happy to read and publish it — if you can find the capacity to state your case using reason and respect. If you can’t, please leave — why would you be the least interested in this site?

Rule the second: If you are going to malign someone’s physical appearance, you must first submit photos of your perfect specimen of a body (nude, four angles), complete with a full medical file with affidavit from an MD, in triplicate.
