Having committed a small massacre of comments last night, I wanted to update the comments policy.

Basically, there’s surely a place for personal attacks among campaign staff and consultants. But this isn’t it. You don’t have to be high-minded or use polite language, but please no more anonymous attacks on private citizens. This is necessarily arbitrary, but I’m zapping what seem like unfair (because anonymous, if nothing else) comments.

The bar is substantially higher for people seeking elected office, though one City Council candidate seems to be taking an unfair share of anonymous abuse as well.

Sorry about the continuing ambiguity. I’m figuring this out as I go along, and reserve the right to be a little arbitrary. Comment
