A warning

For the first time, I’ve seen comments here that in my opinion cross the line that separates vigorous disagreement from scornful personal attacks. I won’t cite those comments here, though I did flag them in remarks I posted in response to each one.

I don’t want comments like these appearing on my blog. So this is my warning, never needed before. Disagreement — including vigorous, even total disagreement — is welcome here, whether it’s about something I say, or something anyone else says.

But if anyone posts a comment that in my opinion gives no reason for disagreeing with anything anyone says, and instead includes scornful remarks about particular people (me or anyone else), I’ll delete the comments as soon as I see them.

I’m sorry it’s come to this. And I trust it’ll stop.
