A Reminder

It is once again necessary to remind everyone that we do not have a forum for vicious personal attacks. We have a forum for the discussion of public policy. We ask that you address the issues. Vicious attacks on our authors and commenters will not be permitted.  Violators will be subject to suspension or revocation of privileges  as two have discovered recently.  Please let this be one place where civility reigns. Thank you for your cooperation. 1. Avoid profanities,ethnic or gender based slurs, or foul language unless it is contained in a necessary quote or is relevant to the comment. 2. Try to relate your comments to the topic. 3. Disagree, but avoid ad hominem attacks. 4. Threats are treated seriously, don’t make them. 5. Spam and advertising are not permitted in the comments area.
