I absolutely encourage commenting if it contributes to the topics I discuss! However, because even the best spam filters slip up sometimes, I do moderate comments, so please don’t be upset when yours doesn’t appear right away. I will do my best to check for comments on a timely basis.

I do not allow trolls. This is the definition of a troll. If you are trolling, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned from the blog. I also reserve the right to delete comments which are inappropriate to the topic of the post.
