I must admit: I have certain rules in handling responses from readers to postings on this blog. No libel, no swearing, no racist remarks, no name-calling.
But I do NOT try to kill off comments from people who disagree with me (although I wonder how could they!). I don’t disqualify them because their submissions have spelling mistakes; I don’t invalidate them because of grammatical mistakes; and I don’t throw them out because their writing style fails to meet some esoteric standard.
