Blog Rules

Greetings! Just a few guidelines to help keep the conversations here civil and productive:

1. No gratuitous or directed profanity. In other words, profanity in moderation is fine when it communicates something you couldn’t get across in quite the same way otherwise (i.e. the occasional “WTF?” is fine) . However, it is never okay to direct profanity at someone else (i.e. please don’t tell anyone else to “fuck off”).

2. Respect each others’ anonymity; no “outing” anyone else in any way. You can reveal as much or as little about yourself as you like, but don’t reveal identifying characteristics or personal information about anyone else unless they’ve already made that information part of the discussion.

3. Feel free to attack peoples’ ideas if you disagree with them, but don’t attack the person–i.e. explain why you disagree with what they’ve said, not what you think it says about their intellect or moral status. Not only is it mean, it’s often a logical fallacy that undermines your argument.

One more guideline, though it’s not a hard and fast rule: Please stay on-topic. Off-topic posts & comments may be deleted. But all links and thoughts related to the course are welcome, whether or not you’re signed up to post on that particular day!
