A lot of new people seem to have visited this site during the last week or so, and being new, they may not know much about us. So: this is not a site on which everyone agrees. We have six posters, two (including me) liberal, one slightly right of center, and three who are to the right. What we share is a commitment to the idea that it is possible to disagree passionately, to argue with one another about what we disagree about, and yet to remain more or less civil about it.
Please do not assume that the other writers on this site share my views about the Terri Schiavo case, or that the people who usually comment on this site are all of one political persuasion. Either assumption would be wrong. And please respect our posting rules, the most important of which are:
"Be reasonably civil.
No profanity. For the record, 'hell', 'damn' and 'pissed' are not considered 'profanity' for the purposes of this rule; also for the record, the more offensive racial slurs and epithets will be deemed to 'profanity' for the purposes of this rule
Don't disrupt or destroy meaningful conversation for its own sake.
Do not consistently abuse or vilify other posters for its own sake."
Thanks, and welcome.
