Lambert and I, and lots of readers, agree that Ukraine has prompted the worst informational atmosphere ever. We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of conflict — each actual fog and stage fog — in feedback. None of us want extra cheerleading and link-free repetition of memes; there are platforms for that. Low-value, link-free pom pom-wavers can be summarily whacked.

And for many who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We’ve got written web site Insurance policies and those that remark have accepted these phrases. To stop having to resort to the nuclear choice of shutting feedback down totally till extra sanity prevails, as we did throughout the 2015 Greek bailout negotiations and shortly after the 2020 election, we’re going to be ruthless about moderating and blacklisting offenders.

P.S. Additionally, earlier than additional stressing our already burdened moderators, learn our web site insurance policies:

Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We don’t have the bandwidth to analyze and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation selections/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback may even be eliminated if we encounter them.
