Rules of this Blog
I would prefer to have a blog without rules or moderation, but due to expected problems with that approach, I will enforce certain rules, at least within the categories I do not exempt from these rules. I may have a free for all category, depending on how much trouble trolls make. I will be final arbiter as to compliance with these rules and consequences of breaking them, but opinions of others involved will signify in my decision. If the offense is gross the offender may be banned with all posts removed without warning. I hope not to have to resort to screening comments.
Unless otherwise specified, some forms of stupidity will not be tolerated. These include, but are not limited to:
Personal attacks, harassment, or threats against myself or anyone who chooses to participate, excepting trolls or anyone breaking the rules. Argument, satire, poking fun are no problem. There are ways to make points without stooping to personal attacks. I would prefer civil discussion, but that is beyond what I could realistically hope for.
Obvious lies, distortions, or other misrepresentations.
Obvious BS, especially if fanatical or antifeminist. If you present an intelligent argument against some feminist principle, you may merely be subject to shredding from myself or friends. If your argument is not intelligent, it might get you banned. If you present a reasonable argument against my statements about psychology or science, you will get a reasonable discussion. I am interested in the truth of matters I bother to write about, so if you think I am in error, your argument will get the attention it deserves, though agreement may not necessarily result. I like a stout debate. I am disinclined to censor, but will not tolerate blatant trolls.
