A Reminder of Our Comment Policy

You can always find our comment policy on the menu at the top of the page, but at times it bears repeating:

We welcome thoughtful and respectful comments to our posts, but we don’t welcome all comments. We view comment threads as a forum for civil intelligent discussion. We therefore reserve the right to edit or delete comments or ban commenters. Although we welcome strong disagreement, we don’t welcome name calling, rudeness, insults, privacy invasions, defamation, or crude remarks. Since our aim is for a discussion that is civil and intelligent, we may delete comments that strike us as stupid, that don’t contribute to the debate, or that are shrill and not in the spirit of reasoned discourse. We will also delete irrelevant comments, and we will ban sock puppets. We may give warnings to problem commenters or in problematic threads. Our judgment on whether to delete a comment or ban a commenter is final. Please feel free to disagree with us, and to disagree strongly, but be respectful of us and others. If you don’t like the tone and tenor of the discussions we want to foster here, then there are plenty of other places in the blogosphere for you to go.

    You’re censoring – valuable legal writing is direct, concise, and poignant. Also, inviting us to visit other blogs is an over-used reference, unnecessarily snarky, and probably detrimental to your ad revenue and lure value to future bloggers. Why do legal profs have such a difficult time just stating the truth? Like: “Dear Law Students, None of you are getting a job. Thanks for the inflated and at-present litigated issue of your fraudulent tuition. Love, Your Academic on Her Summer Break.”

    Have a great weekend. 🙂
