I see there has been a bit of activity on the blog while I've been out and about today. Thanks to each of you for participating here.
In the interest of keeping things civil I am going to set down a few expectations. All opinions and points of view are welcome here, however I am asking that contributors be respectful and refrain from vulgarity, inappropriate comments and personal attacks on others.
Please feel free to debate as vigorously and passionately as you want - but I am asking that folks exhibit a level of maturity and resist resorting to inappropriate comment, hateful remarks, and name calling. I'm sure each of us knows when that point has been reached.
If the dialogue deterioriates - I'll be using my prerogative as the blog owner to delete comments that cross the line.
