Netiquette

Before commenting, please read this closely:

This blog is a space where critical dialogues develop about important and sensitive issues. I value all perspectives, but in the interest of keeping this blog a space for public debate, I ask you to follow two simple rules.

1. Do not make personal attacks. This is sometimes referred to as ad hominem abuse. Rather than attack the person whom you perceive to be making an offensive, irrational, or inaccurate argument, please redirect your energy and explain why the argument is wrong.

2. Do not make comments that have the intent or effect of marginalizing people based on characteristics, such as gender, sex, race, class, disability, sexual preference, age, and weight.

Any comments that violate these rules will be deleted, and the author of the offensive comment will be warned or blocked at the moderators’ discretion.

P. S. My articles are my personal views. If you do not like them or if you do not agree with me, you can do the following:

  • You can ignore me and my blog completely.
  • You can give me counter arguments in a mature manner.
  • You can express your views politely.
  • You can agree to disagree.

P. P. S. I am also an agnostic so while arguing or making your point, kindly refrain from quoting from any religious book or trying to convince me of a supernatural power.
