Rules of conduct

Free speech is great. We all love it. Well, most of us. However, this is a privately run website, which means it can be moderated in whichever manner Patrick Hall sees fit. Thus, here are general guidelines to help you understand what to do and not to do in the comment sections:

1. It is allowed to freely express an opinion, whether it agrees or disagrees with the opinion of this site or with anybody else. Comments will not be removed based on the opinions expressed therein alone.

2. This website recognizes the equal value of all human beings, regardless of ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual oritentation, or any other innate characteristic. Hateful comments which are completely and utterly detached from reality will be removed at this website's discretion.

3. It is strictly forbidden to threaten or bully anybody for any reason. Overly aggressive or threatening comments will be removed. Continued harassment of others will result in a ban from further commenting on this site.

4. It is allowed to post links to other websites. However, these websites cannot contain viruses or anything which may be deemed offensive, including but not limited to pornography, child pornography, or bigotry. Comments with links may be removed at this website's discretion.

By commenting on this site, you agree to these basic rules and understand that your comment may be removed by this website at its discretion (not merely if it breaks any of the four rules). Furthermore, you agree to allow Patrick Hall to cite your comments, unnamed if otherwise expressed, on blog posts on this website as well as on other microblogs, including social media.
