Comments policy

As I’m getting more readers now, I feel the need write one of these in the unlikely but possible event I post something highly controversial and get more comments.

As I hint at in my ‘About the blog’ page, I have a pretty demanding full time job which will mean if I start getting more comments I’m just not going to have the time to write the blog, moderate comments and fully interact in the comment section. However, the whole point of this exercise is for me to learn (please, you thought I was doing this for you?) and this will happen if people write good comments that give me something to think about and write about. With that in mind, here are some maxims I’d like you to follow

1) Be reasonable

The reason I started this blog was, frankly, the honest pursuit of truth. I ask that all comments be offered in this spirit and disagreements be expressed in good faith.

2) Give evidence

If I am wrong, I want the strongest possible reasons presented as to why. Give me something to read.

3) Be clear

The more precise and concise your statement, the more likely I am to take it on board.

4) Be relevant

I don’t have time to read things that have nothing to do with what I’m talking about, and it will just make it harder for me to do what’s important – like respond to good arguments in future posts.

If you know what inspired these principles – congratulations, you’re a philosophy of language geek.
