About commenting in recent days
In recent days on this blog I’ve seen things escalate to incidents of name-calling and taunting, which has never happened here before.
I post about news and issues and I expect that to provoke some response and debate. But I don’t like looking at snark and invective, or hysterically angry remarks, and neither do most people.
So, even if an opinion makes you flare up, please take a deep breath and use that impulse to make you think through a better argument, not throw a stone at your opponent’s head. Do we understand each other?
I do not want to invoke the banhammer, but I will if I have to.
