    • I am an aged lady of 33* so I still have this old-school idea of the Internetz, that it’s supposed to be a free-for-all and nnoyae can say anything at any time and if you step on this at all you’re RUINING the net-utopia. So the “living room” analogy and comment modding concept was foreign to me. At first.Then I saw just how much better the discussion was at places with a mod policy. And I saw how if you went anywhere else, at all, you could get the unadulterated drivel, hate speech, dissent, trolling, flaming, sloppy name-calling, etc. So I’ve come to enjoy both kinds of spaces for different reasons.Now I have a comment policy and all that stuff and I’m clear about what can get in (any disagreement or support) and what won’t (hate speech) I feel very solid about the whole business.I loved your comment policy (just read it) and hope it serves you well! * said in half-jest
