Read the Rules of the House, People

Specifically, the Rules on the Right Side of this Blog.

(Stickied for a bit. New content will be found below this post.)

Rule 1: Don't be a jerk.

Rule 2, in part: Play nice.

The discussion in a couple recent comment threads has been getting heated. One was just nasty and I removed that comment.

I encourage my readers to debate, but I insist on this: It will be done without personal attacks. I know that's easy to fall into, hell, I've done it. But that's still not right and it's not how I want to run things.

But let's be clear on this: I am saying all this to forestall a problem, not correct one. "Nip it in the bud", if you will.

The frequent commenters on this blog, liberal, conservative and inbetween, have proven themselves to be intelligent and thoughtful people.

I would be proud to have a drink with any of you.

Thank you for visiting.

Gotta read those disclosures and stuff, B. Read all the way down on the right hand side, just above her PGP-key.

Wow, I went past it twice before commenting.

I tried to make it hard enough to find that the spambots won't stumble across it.

Apparently, you succeeded....
