Since I’m spending time with my kids and trying to enjoy the summer, I’ve decided to sacrifice the open comments so that I can have quality time with family and still have enough left over to write posts. I also simply want to be in a decent mood around the kids, and that’s hard when I’ve got people violating the comment policy both openly and in spirit.
So for the next week or so, all comments will be on moderation and I’ll only let those through that are intelligent and add to the conversation. Choices will be arbitrary by necessity.
For those who prefer open comments, I’m sorry, but it doesn’t take many rotten apples to ruin the barrel, and we’ve had plenty lately.
