A comment on commenting

I know things are tense as we head into the final week before the midterm elections, but if you want to comment here at RRW, you gotta tone it down.

Many of you are new readers, so you don’t know about my policy regarding comments.  I have a few rules.  First, no threats of violence to anyone. No foul language. And, no attacking another commenter personally.  You can attack their ideas and opinions, but not the person.

Frankly, if you can’t make your point with a good argument, attacking someone personally only makes you and your opinion look weak.

I moderate comments when I have time, so you may not see yours posted immediately.

And, I apologize, I had a look at RRW’s spam folder the other day and see that wordpress has been sending some of you, even long-time commenters, to spam for no apparent reason.  I’ll check that more often.

One last thing, if you write a book or send many links, I might have to not post your comment.  I don’t have time to open each link to check what you are sending, and no one reads long comments anyway.

If you have something long (under 600 words!) and think readers here would find it useful (on topic!) then send it as a comment with a note asking me to consider it as a guest column.

Thanks as always for visiting RRW!
