Since I’m interested in social justice issues, it should be no surprise that I have a strict comments policy. Basically, please don’t be a jerk. I value informed discourse and dialog, but not trolling. Comments that I consider to be racist, sexist/misogynist, ableist, fat-hating, homophobic, transphobic, etc. will not be tolerated. Comparisons between disadvantaged groups are frowned upon. Whining about the evil censorship won’t win me over, because I will just helpfully suggest that you get your own free blog platform where you can say anything you like!
General trolling on any other topics (like Science!) is not going to be tolerated, either. This includes concern trolls and anyone that makes me want to whip out or design a new bingo card.
