Upon the recommendation of the Faculty Blog Committee, we have adopted a new policy regarding reader comments here on the Faculty Blog. You can read the policy here. We believe that this policy will improve the Faculty Blog experience for all involved.
Agree or disagree with the new policy? As always, we welcome your comments.
Comments on this post have been disallowed, and previous comments removed. It has become clear that the Law School's initial decision to err on the side of leniency, and to expect our readers to adhere not only to the letter of the newly adopted comments policy but to its spirit as well, has led to escalation of the very problem this policy sought to prevent. Disagreements with intellectual positions continue to be encouraged, so long as they are expressed in civil terms; ad hominem attacks, however politely phrased, will not be tolerated.
