Blog Posting and Comment Standards: Please Read before Commenting

This blog really works hard to maintain civility in its commentary, even when disagreeing with actions of political leaders etc. Where I grew up this was called common courtesy. This blog requests its readers to draw attention to any failure on our part to maintain civility in our own postings or in the comments it generates. The blog and the LLC behind it is nevertheless not responsible for the accuracy or content of the comments it accepts and makes no warrant as to their reliability.

When commenting on postings please:

  • Be polite to this blog and to other correspondents, as well as to the people who you are commenting on
  • We will try to edit out obvious incivility, but make no promise that inaccurate information may not get through on occasion.
  • In commenting on our blog, correspondents take full legal responsibility for what they are saying.
  • Ask yourself, ‘how would I feel if someone said something like that about me’: based on long standing British parents’ stand by for sibling conflict: ‘how would you like it if I did that to you?’
  • Try to respond to comments in the spirit of dialogue, enquiry (what makes you think that?) and questioning of your own preconceptions
  • Consider that you might be wrong! As indeed we who run this blog consider likewise
  • Imbibe the spirit of the blog: authentic, sometimes playful, sometimes serious, not taking ourselves too seriously, avoiding fundamentalism, and trying on a small scale to make the world a better place and stop the killing before we get to 150 million as we did in the 20th century. This starts with our own one-to-one civility.
  • Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully respect it, not only on this blog but on any comment or blogs you contribute to elsewhere.
  • And of course, as conflict is inherently complex, we make no warrant that our suggested approaches work in practice in your particular situation and we are not responsible for any errors made as a result of what is posted here.

And if you are uncivil Sanani will come looking for you to role model civility:

    Do you have an e-mail address that you would be willing to share for some discussion off-blog?

    • @Kyrie Eleison. Yes provided you keep it confidential. Simply confirm that here by replying to this, and I will email my email to the email address associated with your postings..

      • Kyrie Eleison says:

        Of course. It can even be just a single-use web-based account if you like, just as long as I know it’s actually you I’m talking to on the other end.

    Maybe your friend MR Meister should have looked further into the current use of the land before purchasing the property in which he is fighting for. Maybe individuals from the city should stay in the city and quit trying to bring the city to the wilderness. There is and will be hunting and snowmobiling in the area in which he bought land, get over it. He should have looked into this purchase before buying. If Sanani has a problem with my response, to bad. he is harmless as I see it.

    • @Terry. Maybe you should check your preconceptions at the door. Best I know Kurt Meister’s house has been in his family for at least two, maybe more generations, and his Dad was a passionate hunter, and it is not remotely about his land but about the preservation of 95% of forest for hunting and snow mobiling and only 5% for quiet pursuits. Anyway the cause is lost to prejudice until the hunters numbers plummet far enough which I for one think will be a pity. This was an issue hunters could have shown appreciation of other peoples’s interests and failed. Pity. Thanks for your polite comment.
