I plan, after appropriate research on how to control spam, and deciding whether to moderate comments (which is too much work, as far as I am concerned, so I probably won’t), to open up comments on this blog sometime in first quarter of 2012.
I will be hard pressed not to “borrow” the following note from Barry Ritholtz economics blog, The Big Picture. It prefaces his comments section on posts on the blog.
I think it strikes all the correct notes.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
