As you may have noticed, we have a new Comments policy in effect here at ER. (And if you haven’t noticed, you might want to hold down the Shift key and click your browser’s “Reload” button.) Basically, I’ve decided to improve the signal-to-noise ratio in the comments by moving the trollish stuff to a “Troll” Watch forum over at the ER Discussion Forums. I think I’ve been patient and indulgent long enough, and if I have to turn on comment moderation and filter out the personal issues, I’ll be glad to oblige.
Note that this policy applies to all commenters, no exceptions. We will discuss facts and issues here, and we’ll discuss personalities, insinuations, recriminations, and other diversionary tactics on the forums.
Yours for a more static-free connection to the truth.
