I sincerely wish I had the time to sit across a table and have a lengthy discussion with some of you, for I believe we would both find it interesting, even though we do not always agree. Some commentors merely come here to rant and parrot what they heard elsewhere.
The number of comments has grown to the point that I do not have the time to read, evaluate, and respond to them all. Lack of response on my part merely means I’m too busy to read what everyone has to say.
If you become rude, offensive, or post mainly insults without content, you will be banned without warning. Many people disagree strongly but politely, which is fine, but rudenss and insults are not allowed.
At the sole discretion of the owner, if the comments get repetitive, rude, or cease to be educational, posts will be shut down or comments deleted. Please keep the comments short and on topic and you will be allowed to stay. People will not be banned merely because they disagree strongly but politely with the blog.
Comments with links get caught in the spam filter. They will stay there until I get around to looking at them and approving or deleting them. Sorry, but this is the only way to prevent people from using my blog as their own advertising platform.
