For comments, I will say that I am going to implement as Shel Israel, important blogger and co-author of “Naked Conversations” often refers to what he calls the Living Room rule:
If you came into my home and were rude to another guest, I would ask you to stop. If you continued to be rude, I would ask you to leave. If I feel you are being abusive, hogging the conversation, or otherwise discouraging the open exchange of legitimate points of view. I will ask you to be more polite. If you ignore the request, I will ban you from further comments. I call this the Living Room rule and I will enforce it subjectively.
Please use these rules for posting on ScissorMonkey. I do not have a problem with dissenting opinion, or even someone telling me I am wrong, but there is no need to be abusive or inappropriate.
