COMMENTS must now be approved, no exceptions. This is an epic change to what I’ve been doing on the web for over 15 years. Unfortunately, it’s become imperative.

There are exceptions, but the comment section on the whole has become a combination food fight and low bar debate zone that is rarely interesting, which I don’t have time to babysit.

This is a boutique site with a wide topic list and a small comment section. I value hearing from the thoughtful commenters, so to you I apologize for the inconvenience of having to punish you because of the argumentative snipers who can’t find anything positive to say.

So, feel free to comment, but if you want to make personal attacks your comment will not be approved.

Feel free to send a comment via email as well, which will sometimes get posted, as has been the policy since I started on the web in 1996.
