I have had enough.
Dan has a lot more stomach for insulting comments on our blog, but I do not. I appreciate his attempt to politely suggest that the conversation around here has been degrading and trying to rein it in. It didn’t work.
So, I’m stepping in.
This policy is STILL in effect:
Commenting and trackback/pingback capability is provided to encourage thoughtful discussion of the ideas posted on this site. We welcome open debate and viewpoints that differ from those of the post authors. That said, we wish to keep the conversation civil and the following policies, subject to change without notice, apply:
- Remember that the people under discussion are human beings. Comments that contain personal attacks about the post author or other commenters will be deleted. Repeated violators will be banned. Challenge the ideas of those with whom you disagree, not their patriotism, decency, or integrity.
- The use of profanity stronger than that normally permitted on network television is prohibited. A substantial number of people read this site from an office or in a family environment.
Each individual author is responsible for monitoring the comments to their posts, and ultimately determines which comments merit deletion. Each individual commenter is also responsible for maintaining the civil discourse at GayPatriot.
I will now be editing or deleting comments that violate this policy that have been posted over the past week. No warning, no second chances.
Just stop it.
