How We Roll Here: A Reminder
As new readers are continually coming to this blog site, I give a reminder of “how we roll here” (i.e., the rules for comments, etc.). These are stated under the tab marked “About Me and This Site.” Among them, we use real names here, just as we do in live social conversation. You know who I am, so please identify yourself. Cutesy blog-names aren’t acceptable, and I can never figure out how/why that sort of thing got started anyway. (And, please, that isn’t an invitation for extended comments on the use of such devices.)
Also, speak to the issue dealt with in the posting, and try to avoid introducing extraneous issues. In particular, those who seem to have some “hobby horse” should refrain from trying to wedge it into discussions where it isn’t the posting topic.
And be concise. This isn’t a soap-box for extended perorations. Express your question, or make your point, concisely and to the point.
Those who want to operate in other ways, who want to sound off on subjects (typically, on which they aren’t at all qualified), or who want to try to inject some extraneous issue, or who just want to play “silly buggers” are invited to go to sites where they can do so.
