I want you to comment. I want to have discussions and even friendly, respectful debates. Disagreement is expected and even encouraged, because I want to be called out when I am wrong.
But this is only a forum for free expression on my part, not yours. By U.S. law I’m legally allowed to say anything I want here – I’m not legally required to allow you to.
Again, disagreement is fine. It’s okay to not like things. But be respectful. Obviously, don’t post racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or otherwise hateful comments – I’ll delete them. Off-topic comments will be moved or deleted. Comments that are obvious attempts to derail a conversation, that are personal attacks, or that otherwise take more from than they contribute to the conversation will be called out and probably deleted. I’ll warn you the first time and ban you the second. I’m a busy person – you won’t get a justification for being banned and you won’t get an answer to any emails regarding it.
Obvious trolls will just get banned. Again, I’m busy.
Hopefully, you get the idea.
