Comments must have a valid e-mail address, or they will not be approved. No, I will not publish your e-mail address, and I will not e-mail you, but if you’re so afraid of your opinion that you’re going to write “firstname.lastname@example.org” then your comment will not show up on my site.
I will not respond to private messages, here or on Facebook, regarding my posts. If you are my Facebook friend and want to argue with me on a comment thread there, go ahead. If you want to argue here, go ahead. If you take issue with something I’ve written and want to private message me, don’t waste your time.
This comment policy will evolve as comments happen.
