I meant to mention this the other day, but forgot. I'm not going to be completely hands off about commenting anymore. I used to only remove comments that insulted other people in an ad hominem way, but I'm going to be more rigorous now. I'm exercising my free speech in this respect, not limiting yours. My blogging activity is going to go steadily down over the next several months and will be much lower in the fall and I want my blogging to be productive.
If you tell me that my ideology is immoral or that I want to shoot people to get my way (the comment that inspired this change of policy yesterday) or that my ideology demands mass imprisonment, I'm simply going to delete it. I don't want that clouding discussion. You clearly have no clue what you're talking about and I don't have the time to walk you back off that ledge.
If you don't like that, you can feel free to comment somewhere else.
