Comments policy

We welcome all civil, on-topic comments. We don’t guarantee that a post’s author will see and respond to your comment (but that usually happens). We strongly encourage you to use your actual first and last name when commenting, but it’s your choice.

Sometimes our spam filters make a mistake. If you write what seems like a legitimate comment but it doesn’t show up, it probably went into the spam queue. Don’t worry; eventually we’ll notice and de-spam it.
