More specifically, disagreeing is fine; demonizing or name-calling is not. Attacking ideas is fine; attacking people is not. If your comment contains words like "stupid," "idiot," "evil," or other labeling and broadly stereotyping words, good chance it's not the kind of thing that's appropriate on this blog. Though I'm not always successful, I do my best to avoid seeing people and issues in terms of black and white, good and bad. I ask that my readers do the same. The universe we live in is complicated and beautiful, full of color and nuance. Let's all try to embrace that.
I don't moderate comments before publication, but I do reserve the right to delete comments that I deem hateful, hostile or disrespectful.
I do my best to reply to all comments and am usually successful, although a reply may be delayed by several days. Your patience is appreciated.
