- Comments must be intelligent, and based on the subject at hand (no wandering off the topic of the post.)
- Posts with factual backup stand a much better chance of being included. So, cite your source. (Note to liberals: MoveOn.org is not a source of facts.)
- Irrational, emotion driven posts will be trashed.
- The only one allowed to hold a flame-thrower on this field is myself - you can disagree with me, or another commenter, but no trashing. Please note the the McCain-Finegold-Kennedy-Clinton exception.
- Words mean things, please know the meaning of a word before you use it. If you are unsure, check dictionary.com.
- Brevity is the sole of wit. No 6 page dissertations please.
This is not an exhaustive list, but it hits the highlights of the more recent additions to the garbage can. Remember, my field, my ball, my rules - I don't edit posts, I just trash them.
