1. Please use normal punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and sentence structure. I don't mind a few random mistakes--my entries are not free of them--but a curmudgeon is bothered by the avoidance of capital letters, sentence fragments, and egregious and multiple misspellings.
2. Please endeavor to give arguments or insightful comments. Diatribes and excoriations are better left to me... Emotive utterances are best expressed elsewhere (if there).
3. Realize that I am the publisher and editor and writer (Marshall McLuhan saw all this kind of thing coming long ago) of this blog. So, your comments are submissions, not entitlements. I am free to delete them if I deem them offensive or otherwise inappropriate. I seldom do this, but sometimes indulge the right.
