We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of warfare — 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 will likely be summarily whacked.
And for individuals who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. Now we have written website Insurance policies and people who remark have accepted these phrases. To stop having to resort to the nuclear choice of shutting feedback down solely till extra sanity prevails, as we did in the course of 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 website insurance policies:
Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We shouldn’t have the bandwidth to research and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation choices/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback will even be eliminated if we encounter them.
