A Reminder about Comments

Back in February, when I changed the rules of this blog to allow people to comment without registering, I established some ground rules for commenting in A Comment on Comments.

To quote from that post:
I am very uncomfortable about totally anonymous comments, especially when they are snarky ad hominem criticism directed against commenters who have identified themselves. . . . The Gossips of Rivertown is a blog not a chat board, so comments that do nothing but react to someone else's comment and do not further the discussion or provide additional information are also discouraged.
So, to the anonymous commenter who accused a previous identified commenter of being a "hipocrite" [sic] and then went on to wonder if his/her comment would "make Carole's line," the answer is no.
