I have a fairly open comment policy: If you’re not spam, you’re welcome here.
Okay, so that’s a little more open than what I really mean.
I don’t mind differences of opinion. And if you’ve spent any time at all here then you know that. Consider this: the majority of my commenters are people who fundamentally disagree with me on several issues.
What I do mind is “flaming” each other. I don’t tolerate name-calling, and going off on my commenters is a good way to get your IP banned.
Other than that, any comments are welcome. There’s no such thing as going “off topic” here. If the conversation evolves, that’s great. If it doesn’t, that’s fine too.
