Rules of engagement.

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.
