Time for a Comments Policy Reminder

As I caught up with comments here at the blog recently, I realized that some folks haven’t noticed the Comments Policy posted in the right sidebar on the Journal page.

So, bear with me. Here it is just as a reminder:


  • Speak up! This blog exists to encourage conversation, even among those who disagree.
  • I reserve the right to approve or delete any comments in order to keep matters on-topic and civil. This is not an “anything goes” site. If a back-and-forth debate devolves into insults or disrespect, I will exercise my executive privilege with enthusiasm. Your perspective is welcome, if it is expressed with dignity and grace
  • and modesty. Keep comments fairly brief: 300 words or less. No manifestos. No essays. Want to make a speech? WordPress blogs are free and you’re welcome to start your own.
  • Participants are limited to three comments per blog entry, to keep any one reader from dominating.
  • Exceptions to these rules may occasionally occur if I deem the situation… um… exceptional.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has relaunched a bigger, better version of this blog at LookingCloser.org. The new Looking Closer doesn't have any of the trashy click-bait advertisements that you're probably seeing all over this Patheos page. So give yourself a break.

    I disagree :)
