Comment Policy – We want you to feel at home when you post a

     comment. We  expect people to behave. That’s why we reserve the right

     to delete comments and ban users as needed to keep the comment

     threads here civil and substantive.

     Don’t be a jerk.

  • Weigh in with smart, informed ideas that contribute further to the story.

  • Give us useful, constructive criticism. Spot a typo or an error? Let us know and we will correct it.

  • Demonstrate and share the intelligence, wisdom, and humor we know you possess.

  • Don’t feed the trolls. Don’t argue with an idiot…. Downvote and flag comments instead.

  • Impersonating authors or other commenters.

  • Comments that make it clear you didn’t read the article.
