Comment Policy

You're more than welcome to add your two cents to the conversation here; we greatly appreciate the well-thought-out and insightful responses that so many people have generously shared with us. Just a few guidelines to keep in mind:

1. Please focus on your own experience, ideas, and interpretations. This isn't the place to call others to repentance, or to attempt to remove the mote from anyone else's eye. Comments along the lines of, "in my experience, this has been helpful" or "this is the way I see things" are fabulous. Comments along the lines of "this is what's wrong with you" are a problem.

2. You're welcome to explain why you completely disagree with someone's ideas, but personal attacks are not acceptable. This includes such behaviors as name-calling, insults, or questioning other people's personal righteousness.

3. Please keep ranting and raving to a minimum. We'd like to keep the tone here constructive.

4. While you certainly don't have to be LDS to participate here, please respect that this is a blog aimed primarily at an LDS audience and avoid comments with a generally anti-Mormon tone. This isn't the place to debate the veracity of the LDS faith, or to attempt to argue anyone in or out of her/his beliefs.

Comments which violate these rules may be removed. If this happens and you think you've been misinterpreted, or you have other questions about this, you can contact us at

In a nutshell, don't be obnoxious and don't be self-righteous, and you should be just fine. :)
