Brains aims to be a forum for open and honest discussion of important philosophical issues. To this end, anonymous commenting is permitted, and comments are not screened before they are permitted to appear on the blog. However, there will be no tolerance for hostile, derogatory, or otherwise abusive comments — they will be deleted immediately, and those who submit such comments repeatedly will find themselves banned from commenting. In addition, all commenters must submit a valid e-mail address along with their comments, and those who wish to remain anonymous are encouraged to adopt pseudonyms in order to make it easier to refer back to them in subsequent discussion.
Please feel free to contact John Schwenkler (jlschwenkler at gmail dotcom) if you have any questions or concerns about this policy.
