Lambert and I, and lots of readers, agree that Ukraine has prompted the worst informational surroundings ever. 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 probably be summarily whacked.

And for many who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We have now written website Insurance policies and people who remark have accepted these phrases. To forestall having to resort to the nuclear choice of shutting feedback down solely till extra sanity prevails, as we did through 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 pressured moderators, learn our website insurance policies:

Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We do not need 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.
