This is my personal blog.
This blog does not shy away from contentious areas.
With that in mind, the basic rules of engagement are those of civility. The usual stuff: Do not troll; do not flame; don’t engage in ad hominem attacks; treat the other people on this blog with respect. Remember that my audience are mainly teachers, educators and activists, and you’ll get much further at convincing people with well-thought-out arguments than with rants.
And finally, I reserve the right to maintain this environment with all the tools at a blogmaster’s usual disposal — mercilessly closing threads, deleting comments, and banning people as needed.
