We at UM have stated it is our policy that we do not edit comments on this blog. Well, in light of recent comments, certain commenters have forced us to change our policy. Instead of commenting about the blog and KU/NK, certain posters have decided to make personal attacks against those who comment here and on other boards and blogs. That is so unfortunate. Because of a few posters, everyone will be moderated from now on. All comments will need to be approved before they are published. There will be three or four of us who will review comments before they are published. If the comment pertains to KU/NK and/or the blog, they will automatically be approved and published in a timely manner. If the post discusses another blog that refers to KU/NK, it may be permitted, as long as there is no personal bashing. Of course links to news stories about KU/NK and discussion about them are welcome. If the comments are bashes against private individuals, or against individuals on other boards and/or blogs, they will not be published. The freedom of speech is a wonderful thing... but the outright abuse of other speakers is intolerable.
