I'd like to take a few minutes and share my thoughts on comments. I think readers enjoy having the comment section open, and although they often tick off my mom, I think they add to the overall quality of the blog and I'd like to keep them open. However, we need to go over a few rules.
Some comment rules should be obvious. I remove comments that are clearly spam "Low Priced Air Jordans", and I remove profanity and threats. It's ok for people to use fake names, but not if they are fake names of real people who aren't famous. So if someone wants to be John Wayne or Tom Cruise, that's fine. If someone wants to be Chad Campbell or Olivia Cortes, that's not OK. And please stick to one alias--if you want to make it look like a lot of people agree with your opinion, then you need to find actual other people, not just comment under a new name. And please don't post comments that hijack the thread.
