Rules and Guidelines

  • The username can be your username from your Twitter, Facebook, Google, or Disqus account. Please use the same name for your username as the name that you would want to use for your authored posts. (We ask that you do this so that when you are responding to comments about your post, others in the discussion will see that you are the author.)If you need more explanation on how to get and use a username, please click here.
  • Usernames must NOT contain website or email addresses, contact information (e.g., phone numbers, postal codes), or objectionable words. Usernames also must not include words that give the impression of impersonating someone else.
  • When submitting your post, please include a title as well as the name you would like displayed as author.
  • Please put the text in the body of the email and do not use attachments.
  • Any blog entry or comment with quoted material should include a complete reference of its source.
  • Comments on the blog entries are retroactively moderated.
  • If a discussion degenerates into a debate leading to an endless number of posts with no new content, the moderator may choose to close that particular blog-post for any further comments.
