As I do a couple of times a year, today I again caution you that even the most idle and
“jokey” threats of physical harm to any person or property are
completely unacceptable on JMG. Also strongly discouraged are expressed wishes of physical harm to others by any means, including natural ones. Please remain aware that JMG
comments are often scoured by the enemies of civil equality who look for
any opportunity to republish ill-considered reactions to the news
We sometimes see more than 50,000 – 100,000 comments per month and I cannot
personally read but a
fraction of them. Therefore I must rely on the JMG community to stay
self-policing and notify me by email should any comment concern you. Be
advised that in many cases these comments are posted by drive-by
trolls in order to grab triumphant screen-shots for use elsewhere.
You’ve been remarkably great about observing these very few commenting
rules and I thank you for that.
