It takes a lot of time and work to monitor the comments we get on this blog. Believe it or not, I reject more comments than I allow. There have been several folks who have been trying to post something in the comment section of this blog for years and I will not allow them to participate because they cannot bring themselves to write in a civil manner that does not include profanity, endless references to Nazis, and ad hominem attacks on me and other commentators. I just don’t have time to monitor them all.
And many of the comments that I have approved often do not reach the level of civility and dialogue I had always hoped would take place at this blog. So, once again (we’ve done this once before), I am closing the comments section for the time being.
