I've been observing with bemused anticipation this past week as Chet's postings have delved into political matters. It was only a matter of time before he got some push-back on some of this. While some of us would like "science" to be nothing more than papier-mâché volcanoes and potato clocks, it is rarely that simple. Modern science deals with the "big" questions as well. This means there will be some overlap into religion and politics.
With this in mind I thought it might be wise to formalize a commenting policy. We enjoy and encourage the feedback and discussion. If you choose to leave public comments on the blog, please be aware you are responsible for your own words. It is not our intention to ever censor or stifle any discussion, with the following caveat: keep your comments civil and don't stray too far off-topic.
