Sharing + Disqussing

Original drawing by Sam Keenan

We like when people who are usually in opposition sit down and have a good, respectful discussions with each other.  Topics discussed may vary widely, but are best summarized as political and philosophical, with feminist leanings. No matter what your opinion is about anything we discuss, we hope you'll join the discussion. If you can't be a reasonably polite person when doing so, however, we'd prefer you go away.

§ Please respect the following:
  • No personal attacks against authors of posts or comments.
  • No homophobic, sexist, racist, ableist, transphobic, or other bigoted, oppressive language.
  • Don't dehumanize people in your comments. Refer to human beings with personal pronouns, please.
Due to overwhelming hatred, we got rid of threaded comments.  While it was helpful to be able to see exactly who was replying to whom, it's just too messy, and how long a particular thread will go on is impossible to predict.  So, feel free to HTML-ify your comments to make it clear who you're addressing. To mention someone by name, type the @ symbol and the commenter's username. For example, if Bayron wanted to mention April, he'd type in @ then "April", select her name from the contextual list and her icon would appear in Bayron's comment.

§ To quote text in comments:
Use the HTML <blockquote> and </blockquote> tags. Text put inside those tags appears offset in a new paragraph. For example, <blockquote>Ethecofem is a two year old blog.</blockquote> gives
Ethecofem is a two year old blog.
§ To bold or italicize text you're replying to:
<b>Here is some bold quoted text.</b> 
<i>Here is some italicized quoted text.</i>
§ You do not need a Disqus account to comment. Anonymous comments are A-OK. The default comment view is oldest first, so you get to be rewarded for being the early worm. If you like that chronological ordering, please change it in your Disqus profile.
