When it comes to the comments section of this website, I have given commenters wide latitude to make their case and even do a bit of name-calling and trash-talking. Over the last couple of days, and particularly yesterday, this has gotten out of control and I have had to trash several inappropriate comments from multiple sources.
I appreciate and encourage the free flow of information and I want there to be healthy, passionate debates here. What will not be tolerated are attempts to intimidate others. I am also going to show far less tolerance for name-calling and personal attacks. These guidelines apply to everyone.
Posters who routinely flaunt these basic standards of decency will find that all of their comments will find the way to the trash bin. It is not my responsibility to provide a forum for such nonsense.
