As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. However, without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a virtual shouting match that discourages others from contributing. Consequently, by participating in this community (i.e., posting on, you agree to the following comments policy:

  1. You may comment without registering. You may post as a guest, or log in with WordPress, Twitter, or Facebook. It’s up to you.
  2. You may post anonymously. We don’t recommend this because anonymity impedes the development of the community; however, you may do so if you wish.
  3. You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Therefore, you add value to the conversation by asking. In addition, a public answer will probably prevent a handful of private emails asking the same question so it’s also much more efficient.
  4. You may disagree. We welcome debate. However, if you disagree with any contributor — or anyone else, for that matter — please do so respectfully.
