Since I seem to be something of a lightning rod for annoying little troglodytes, a commenting policy is now in place.
The following are offenses that will result in the editing or deletion of your comment:
The use of racist, sexist, or otherwise bigoted terminology in your comments without proper context
Posting any utterly off-topic comment as an attempt to derail the comments
Spamming of any kind
Any link to illegal or objectionable content without proper context
ADDED 10/7/2008: "Joe-jobbing" (posing as the owner of another site in order to initiate hostility towards that site) - THIS IS A NO-WARNING BANNABLE OFFENSE
With the exception of spamming or any offense outlined above with a note, any offense will be tolerated ONCE within a reasonable timespan (based on your previous record and attitude). Any repeat offenses within that timeframe will result in a permanent ban of your IP block.
