Notice On Comments

1832 is a place for a civil discussion of politics and as such, name calling, profanity, threats of violence towards anyone, whether they are bloggers or other commentators, will not be tolerated. Violators will have their comments deleted immediately and repeat offenders will be banned from commenting on this blog.

1832 currently allows for anonymous comments to be posted on this blog so that readers are not required to sign up for a blogger account. However, if abuse of our "liberal" commenting policy continues, we will be forced to change our policy to one that is much more restrictive.

When commenting on our blog please remember that we have a diverse readership that includes the various university communities, people from all over Wisconsin and the rest of the United States, and our own families and friends, some of which are very young in age.

This does not mean that you cannot express your disagreement with or even your general dislike of a blogger or commenter on 1832, you simply have to keep it from going over the top.

One of the main purposes of this blog is to create a conversation between people of differing viewpoints and backgrounds, it remains 1832's sincere hope and desire that we can have that conversation in as close to a civil manner as possible.

Thank you-
The 1832 Blog Staff
