Over the past year or so, I have been working to change the culture of the comments section on this site. This has been successful, I think, in that there have been an ever-growing number of neighbors commenting here. I am also forever re-realizing that this will be an ongoing process.
My goal here is to have an online community where everyone feels free to share, without the conversation being dominated by the loudest, the most angry, or the obsessed. If you have doubt, take it down a notch or two.
To help forefront the idea that there are some ground rules for the site, I’ve added a link to our PRIVACY / USE / COPYRIGHT / DISCLAIMER page below the text field where comments area posted.
