Civility in Discourse

Civility in the Blog World

Complete and continual civility in the kind of open forum that a blog with comments presents is wishful thinking as the trolls will always pop up.

This isn't an issue here...Modulator's comment threads currently are lucky exceed 0 in length. But we all read other blogs and from time to time add our comment to the discussion.

So, as Kevin Drum and Jane Galt point out civility is certainly a goal to reach for and will not only raise the level of discussion but increase the chances of your comment being thoughtfully read.

More discussion of this here and here.
