Comment Policy

  1. Participants in the comments are kindly requested to be civil, and at least vaguely on-topic.
  2. I will delete (or disemvowel) comments that are duplicative, commercial, needlessly foul or mean or otherwise inappropriately offensive.
  3. Instead of deleting a post, I may disemvowel the URL to commercial sites even if a post is arguably on-topic when I believe the poster is engaged in a pattern of linking to different commercial sites under false names, or even to a single site under multiple names or linked terms.
  4. I will use blocking software to block links to sites using words or strings commonly associated with commercially oriented blog posts or references.
  5. I will ban the IP number of any poster who serially violates this policy.
  6. My decisions are final. I’m happy to discuss them by email.
  7. I’ll amend this policy as I gain experience.
  8. In the long run, it remains to be seen if comments is a workable commons or not. I will not have my work be used as billboard for your ads (at least, not without a cut, and this is a resolutely non-commercial activity). I’m prepared to turn off comments if vigilance proves too time-consuming.

One Response to Comment Policy

  1. Dear Professor Froomkin:

    I appreciate the opportunity you afforded me to realize you are very active in Coral Gables politics.

    I realize that, due to interstate Trustee, and personal, fraudulent manipulations by my mother, I carry large negatives.

    Nothing will change my belief that your brother, Dan Froomkin, is truly one of the greatest patriots the United States had during his time writing for the Washington Post. There is no question in my mind he deserves a Pulitzer Prize, and that this country, whether it realizes it or not, owes your AMERICAN PATRIOT brother, Dan Froomkin, a truly huge debt.

    Dan Froomkin is my hero, and always will be.

    It is my hope that you, as an obviously very intelligent law professor, can at least intellectually comprehend my explanation of my past calamities. It is my further hope you will be willing to interrogate me, asking me any and all questions, to determine, for yourself, whether you find my explanations credible.

    I do plan to run again for City Commissioner, for reasons I will discuss in the future.


    Jackson Rip Holmes
