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.
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 rudeness and insults are not allowed.
Very often on discussion boards ideas are repeated so often as to lessen the educational value of the discussion. People also tend to post lengthy statements in support of an off-topic idea. This is not a good place for either.
Please make your point clearly in a comment or two. When a post gets repetitive, or if people post large off-topic statements, comments will be shut down for that post. Discussions that go round in circles covering the same ground multiple times is of no benefit to anyone, so those will be stopped at the sole discretion of the owner.
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.
Lack of response on my part merely means either the comment has already been answered or I’m too busy to read what everyone has to say.
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.
