Comments Policy

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen a rather large increase (roughly 5x my usual traffic) in the number of visitors to this site. 99.999999% of the extra traffic is all due to a post I wrote last November. As we move into the final hours before Congress conducts its historic vote on this issue; I’ve noticed some of the comments my old post is receiving are little more than random spewing of hate. This is one of the reason that I use comment moderation on this site. If you’ve never left a comment on this site before; your comment goes into a queue. A queue which I check when I have the time and desire to do so.

Does this site have a formal comment policy? Not really, but if you’d like to read the comment policy of a writer I admire take a look at John Scalzi’s Site Disclaimer and Comment Policy. That should give you a pretty good idea how I feel about comments and the responsibilities of those who write them.
