I generally let comments go but I think it it time to institute some limits for the sake of keeping conversations useful and focussed on matters of evidence and logic. So I will be removing any and all comments that direct personal insults to anyone. A personal insult being a crude name, attributing malicious motives or denigrating a persons basic intelligence, morals or other personal qualities.
Now if you want to say what a press or person is *doing* is unskilled, bizarre or just a very bad idea because of [insert reason here] that is fine. I just don't want to descend into mean girl accusations, name calling and snark of people not products and services. Snark of products and services, just to be clear, is fine and dandy.
I hope that makes sense and is okay with y'all.
Edited to Add to clarify, in case this should be needed, examples of what name calling is: "...everyone being so nasty...a small, jealous mind...go away and get a life"
Edited to Add: I am told that people believe I have been deleting comments in support of DCL. This is not true. I have deleted one post a few minutes ago in accordance with my new stated policy. If anyone thinks their post has been deleted or can see the alleged 'seven deleted comments' (a screen shot of this for example) please tell me. Because it ain't me doing it. I see 41 comments on the DCL post, 1 deleted.
