We welcome debate and dissent, but personal attacks (on authors, other users or any individual), persistent trolling and abuse will not be tolerated. The key to maintaining the website as an inviting space is to focus on intelligent discussion of topics.

Keep it relevant. If you post something which is unrelated to the original topic then it may be removed, in order to keep the thread on track.

Do not overpost your comments. You can comment and have an intelligent discussion. However, unless you are the author of the Website, you can't turn the Website into your personal blog.
