Lambert and I, and lots of readers, agree that Ukraine has prompted the worst informational surroundings ever. We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of struggle — 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 shall be summarily whacked.

And for many who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We have now written web site Insurance policies and people who remark have accepted these phrases. To forestall having to resort to the nuclear possibility of shutting feedback down fully till extra sanity prevails, as we did throughout the 2015 Greek bailout negotiations and shortly after the 2020 election, we’re going to be ruthless about moderating and blacklisting offenders.

–Yves

P.S. Additionally, earlier than additional stressing our already confused moderators, learn our site policies:

Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We shouldn’t have the bandwidth to analyze and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation selections/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback may even be eliminated if we encounter them.
