In an attempt to encourage reader participation, I’ve enabled commenting for visitors without Commentarius accounts. This will allow people to make somewhat more anonymous comments. At the very least, my progressive friends and frenemies will hopefully feel more comfortable pointing out the gaping holes in my arguments.
However, I’m now switching comment moderation on – which means I will be reviewing some comments before they are posted. I intend to be pretty aggressive about policing vitriol (other than my own of course!). I welcome debate, but only dispassionate debate. The combination of emotion and anonymous internet commenting rarely produces anything worth reading.
But feel free to send me hate mail!
