There has been quite a bit of off topic discussion lately. Rather than clog up specific articles with unrelated comments I’m creating this open article where you can discuss anything current, topical and related to libertarianism, this blog or anything else vaguely of interest to others who gather here.
I don’t normally moderate or close down comments but for something different I will on this discussion. My only rule for comments on this article is as outlined below:-
Type (i) abuse prohibited. ie not allowed.
Type (ii) abuse permitted. ie it’s okay.
Type (i) abuse entails making disparaging remarks about a person, rude word play on their name or sarcastic descriptions about them. Basically anything personal. Some prohibited examples:-
– “You’re an idiot”.
– “Man you’re stupid”.
– “Your mother is the only one that could love you”.
– “Only a complete fool would say that”
– “You’re a troll”
Type (ii) abuse entails making a disparaging remark about a persons specific idea or specific behaviour. It is not general or personal. Some permitted examples:-
– “That’s a frickin stupid comment”
– “That’s a really dumb idea”
– “What you just did was bloody ridiculous”
Stick to the rule, be creative and have fun. Ignore my rule and I’ll delete you. 🙂
Lurkers should feel free to join in.
