If you're on my Friends list, note that I can't promise to read everything you post. I tend to read mostly those people I know personally. I use my Friends list as a way to allow people to post comments in my blog without automatic screening.
When commenting on the posts in my journal, please be respectful of other people and their beliefs. We may disgree with each other, but there are to be no personal attacks. Also, please refrain from using obscenities.
For a variety of reasons, I have had to block anonymous commenting. If you wish to participate in discussion in my blog, you will need to do it from a LiveJournal account. Posts from people not on the "Friends" list are screened until I have a chance to unscreen them.
If I feel a comment is inappropriate, I will ask you to remove or rephrase it.
