Over the years I watched as the quality on a number of blogs was eroded by a decline in civility in the comments section. Then Facebook and Twitter arrived and managed to bring a new level of purity to toxic discourse. However, I do not wish to see this happen on this blog.
To this end, the ability to comment directly to posts on this blog is disabled. I have a high tolerance for impassioned dialog when positions are argued with reason, facts, and well articulated experiences. If you wish to comment on any of the material on this blog, please email me directly so that I may know your thoughts. Whether you agree or disagree with me, if your thoughts are well reasoned and present a valuable perspective, I will include them as an addendum to the relevant post.
