Hey folks. You may have noticed that I haven't been asking people lately to limit their comment length. I decided a while back that as of October 1, I would announce suspension of the 250-word comment limit. That magical day is here.
Nonetheless, I would ask that people not print treatises in my comments section like Tango Man used to. If you really want to get your point across, you are more likely to be effective with a more succinct comment. And I reserve the right to re-institute a comment limit or to exhort individual commenters to try to keep it short.
By the way, this doesn't mean I am not still irritated at the people who pissed-and-moaned incessantly about the comment limit. (You know who you are.)
I have also long-ago stopped enforcing the "no swearing" rule. Apologies to my conservative Christian readers, who are always welcome here, but sometimes salty language is the best way to express one's point. I would ask people to keep that kind of language to a minimum but if you feel you need to be blunt, I won't complain.
