Commenting & Moderation Policy
We envision this as an online venue for professional philosophical discussion.
While commenters need not have a higher degree in philosophy, commenters will be expected to abide by conversational norms typical for a professional presentation and question & answer (Q&A) discussion period.
These norms include:
Commenting by raising a question, or an objection, or otherwise providing constructive feedback,
That addresses the substance of the author’s presented work.
Not repeating a question, objection, or piece of feedback already raised by someone else.
Please note that “piling on” or personal attacks are not permitted.
Our aim in enforcing these standards is to realize a unique forum in the philosophy web-o-sphere: a place for productive, professional discussion of new research.
Readers may report comments that run afoul of this policy—and, although we hope to use moderation rarely and judiciously, please note that we may remove such comments or (in repeated or egregious cases) ban particular commenters.
