The commenting policy is simple. All I ask of you is a nickname and your email to verify that you are a human. That email will not be shared with any third parties unless required to do so by law enforcement or a court order. Keep the comments civil. No personal attacks. Violation of these simple rules will result in a warning on your first offense, a deletion of your comment on your second offense, and a banning of your email on your third offense. If you get smart and enter a different email address to get by and get a fourth strike, your IP gets blocked. And so on until the comments close ten days later on each post.
Simple enough, right?
