Blog Policies

  1. All posts and comments by our contributors are their own opinions, which are not necessarily shared or condoned by other contributors to the blog, nor by their respective employers, collaborators, or other associates.
  2. We want readers to be able to say whatever they’d like to say – we believe in a “free-speech comment zone” so please comment as much as you’d like and say what you’d like to say.
  3. Civil disagreement is encouraged: “I do not understand why you make that conclusion. I interpret the results very differently.” Uncivil disagreement, name calling, etc. is discouraged and may be deleted: “I do not understand why you make that conclusion – it’s probably because your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.”
  4. We do not actively moderate comments, though we do apply a filter for spam. We reserve the right to delete any and all comments that we judge to be uncivil or spammy.

ps – need more of that Monty Python clip? Here you go. Now go away before I taunt you a second time.
