We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of warfare — each actual fog and stage fog — in feedback. None of us want extra cheerleading and link-free repetition of memes; there are platforms for that. Low-value, link-free pom pom-wavers can be summarily whacked.

To forestall having to resort to the nuclear possibility of shutting feedback down fully till extra sanity prevails, as we did through the 2015 Greek bailout negotiations and shortly after the 2020 election, we’re going to be ruthless about moderating and blacklisting offenders.
P.S. Additionally, earlier than additional stressing our already pressured moderators, learn our website insurance policies:
Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We do not need the bandwidth to analyze and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation choices/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback may also be eliminated if we encounter them.
