Of course, I welcome comments! I hope to have vigorous discussion with people from all walks of life and all points of view, so please feel comfortable to leave your thoughts, whether they be pro or con. Don’t be squeamish. If you think I’m wrong, say so.
There are rules, however; even UFC fights have them, and it is no different here.
First, be prepared to back up your view with reasoning. Just emoting won’t get you very far.
Second, name calling is not an argument. That will just get you laughed at.
Third, no spam. Such tomfoolery will mean that Chuck Norris will be hunting you down.
Fourth, keep in mind that ideas have (many times grave) consequences. This is serious business–no armchair sophistry allowed.
Fifth, know that I do have a day job, so comments might not get approved right away. Also, on Sundays I take a day off blogging, so I only approve comments after 9pm on that day.
Sixth and most importantly, be willing to engage. This means grappling with contrary viewpoints, and either refuting them or adjusting your own view if you find those viewpoints to be solid. Refer to rule four.
If you can abide by those rules, then put your cup on.
