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.


  • Promoting your own brand, product, or blog.

  • Impersonating authors or other commenters.

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

  • Remarks that are completely out of left field. ( recently tweeted…Protestors are “ungrateful sons of bitches” and someone who murders people with their car is a nice guy)….. are generally crap and spoken by idiots

  • Threats — no matter how vague — against the author or other commenters.

  • Racism, sexism, homophobia, you get the drift.

  • Trolling. – ( bating someone with your stupidity )

  • Blogs can make a great income.

    Before I started my first blog, I was STRUGGLING financially. Deciding to start a blog paid off huge for me, changing my finances forever.

  • Connector.
    Making a lot of new friends.

    I never anticipated that through blogging, I would meet so many awesome new friends. That was a big deal for this super-shy introvert.

    An incredible resume.

    One of my friends got a job as a University Professor (without a graduate degree) because he had an incredible blog about the subject he wanted to teach.
