We are pretty opinionated, and we assume you are, too. So tell us what you think! Seriously, tell us what you really think. We ask only a couple of things:
These sorts of conversations are what we do for fun, but they’re also what we do for a living. To protect everyone’s privacy, please don’t use last names or names of institutions. We’ll have to delete your comment if you do. (This obviously excludes, e.g., authors whose work we’re discussing.)
We want to hear what you have to say, even and sometimes especially if you disagree with us, but please be civil to us, to each other, and to any third parties caught in the melee. If you wouldn’t say it in our living rooms, don’t say it here.
We’re really hoping that this blog will be a place where we open rather than close conversations, work through disagreements with charity, and seek precision and truth, even when it’s complicated. We would be especially happy if you were to join us in these goals.
