Rules for Posting
I realized that I hadn’t laid out any ground rules for posting comments on the blog.
For that, we must quote Evelyn Beatrice Hall, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to death your right to say it. (this is often attributed to Voltaire, but most historians think it was Hall, trying to capture the spirit of Voltaire)
This means no post will be edited for content or language. If you can’t take either, find Bambi or Dora the Explorer’s blog.
However, I will be quite forceful about playing nice. No name calling is allowed unless it applies (Ken Ham is a fundie nut job or PZ Myers is squid loving fool). No racism is allowed. And certainly, no threats of any kind will ever be tolerated. For the first two, you will be asked politely to refrain and your post deleted. For threats, you will be banned.
Other than that, fire away at me and each other.
