After thinking through the 37 helpful comments posted to my post about comment policy, I’ve decided to start slowly as proposed. That means:
I have adopted a policy of deleting personal attacks on others. That means any comment that is directed against someone other than me, which is uncivil and attacking something other than the substance of what that person has written as a comment on my blog will be removed if (1) a request is made by anyone to [email protected], and (2) the volunteer I’ve selected agrees the policy has been violated.
I like some of the other suggestions, including incorporating the slashdot system. As things develop, I may move to something more.
Thanks to all for the help.
