Latte Policy on Comments

Many political blogs do not accept reader comments.  I currently accept them on Latte because I like an exchange of ideas, even if the discussion sometimes grows heated.

Comments should be relevant to the individual post.  Substantive comments will usually be published and retained on the site, regardless of their political orientation. 

People posting racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic or other sorts of comments that I believe are offensive will be banned from commenting.

Comments that are off-topic or include personal attacks on me, the guest authors, and/or other commentators will be deleted. Commentators who persist in irrelevant comments or attacks will be permanently banned.

Decisions about which comments to retain will sometimes be subjective, and because I maintain this blog, I reserve the right to do as I please.  However, in general, substantive dialog is welcome from anyone who chooses to contribute.
