No trolling, flaming, and hate speech, please

With any luck at all, we'll be having some heated conversations about controversial topics. Please show respect for other participants, even if you disagree with their ideas, and for the readers of this blog. And please avoid trolling and flaming, as well as various forms of hate speech: racism, sexism, homophobia, trans-phobia, attacks on any religion or nationality, etc. etc.

Of course, the blogosphere being what it is these days, some people will probably ignore this. If they do, please don't respond to attacks; and please don't feed the trolls.

For definitions and additional discussion, see the resource page on dealing with hate speech, flaming, and trolls.
