A few blog guidelines

We've taken down a posting today from a blogger with a double-entendre pseudonym. And in addition, we're watching some conversations degenerate into name-calling.

Here's some advice gleaned from talking to a group of wise women recently: If you think the last poster is an idiot, stop a minute to interject the thought "bless his/her heart." And then find a way to tackle the issue without resorting to personal attack.
