I own this web site. I pay for it. That means I get to make the rules.

My rules are really pretty simple. No anonymous comments are allowed. Be civil. Stay on topic. Be polite. Insulting me on my own web site is guaranteed to get you permanently banned. Spamming is never, ever allowed. When I say “enough is enough”, I mean it. Obey the rules at all times.

There’s nothing terribly difficult or complicated about those rules. Either obey them, or you’re gone for good. They are not negotiable, and my decisions about enforcing them are not subject to any right of appeal. And if you don’t like the rules, then hit the road and don’t come back, now, or ever, because they’re not going to change. Now, or ever.

Mr. Warren chose to break about five of those rules in the two comments that he left yesterday, so I have not only deleted his comments, I have permanently banned his IP address. We won’t see him here again.

    But, is it okay to talk about neo-confederates on this thread, too?

    I don’t always agree with you Eric, but I like your attitude and agree on this point whole-heartedly.

    I am not sure how these sites work, so can you advise by private return email how I make contact?
    I would appreciate permission to reproduce one of your articles (Percy Wyndham) in a family Newsletter.
