Commenters at Pax Nortona are expected to treat me and other posters with reasonable respect. Civil disagreement is always welcome.
The first time you comment, it will be held up for moderation. Once you have been approved, you will be able to comment freely except when you use trigger words such as obscenities and hate speech. These will be held up for moderation. Some obscenities may be allowed — e.g. “it fucking hurts” is all right, but “fuck you” is not.
I also use a spam filter to ensure that you are not deluged with advertisements.
Comments must be topical to the article to which they are attached. Violations will be ignored and deleted.
Real names are preferred.
I do not tolerate stigmatizing comments or other hate speech. Repeated abuses of this form will result in your contributions being dumped in the spam queue and forgotten.
Other than that, free and lively dissent is welcome. I also take compliments.
