I would like to encourage lively, open debate on the issues presented, but would like to establish a few ground rules for comments:
- NO profanity allowed. Only civil and respectful discourse is expected. Persons consistently violating the rules will be banned from posting comments. Since I moderate all comments, if you violate the code, your comment won’t see the light of day anyway.
- Be prepared to back up your view with facts, figures, and sound reasoning. Address arguments, not persons. Name calling is the best way to lose credibility and the argument.
- I approve all comments, so it may take a day or two before your comment is posted. All comments are subject to review, edit, or removal.
- Be willing to engage. This means grappling with contrary viewpoints, and either refuting them or adjusting your own view if you find other viewpoints superior to your own.
I look forward to dialoguing with you!
