We hate to do this, but things have been getting out of hand lately. While we appreciate and encourage people of differing opinions to post comments on the blog, the hateful, rude and personally abusive posts have gotten out of control. From now on, any comment that contains a personal attack will be deleted as soon as we are able to get to it. This is not censorship because you will be able to repost your thoughts without the personal attack in them. Attacking each other is not the way to foster a good discussion. Additionally, we don't feel that one of the things we should have to deal with on a daily basis is personal attacks from people who disagree with us. Thanks for understanding. We don't want to have to disable comments completely.
