Friends, I have no problem with you leaving a comment about one of my posts. I simply ask that you follow the rules of civility: no spittin’, no cussin’, no name callin’, no accusin’ me or others of ill intent, and write as if your saintly grandmother (or your kids) were reading over your shoulder.

And if I visit your blog I will do you the respect of following your rules. Got it? Good, let’s move on.
