Comment Policy

We love lively, respectful discussion that sticks to the ideas being discussed!

To report a comment that is in violation of the discussion guidelines (note: you do *not* need to affirm our SoF to comment to posts on this website), send our comments editors an email with:

1. a link to the relevant thread,

2. a quote of the problem comment, and

3. an explanation of how the comment violated the discussion guidelines.

If you wouldn’t want someone to say (or spam) it to you, don’t say (or spam) it to them. Violators face a 24-48 hour ban on first or minor offenses, and a permanent ban after the third or a more serious offense. The more traffic coming to the site, the more we will rely on you to bring problem comments to our attention. Thank you!

Note:  Your comment may not show up until you have registered and been verified with Disqus, the comment system we are using.
