"I promise to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable, that I will never accept what I am told, that I will never fall in love with safety and forget liberty. I promise that I will look for the lie in every pretty story and the bribe in every convenience." -- Jim Marcus

And my standard social media disclaimers:
My general G+ policy is as follows: I add people who are interesting to me, I share content I'm comfortable with having public publicly. If I haven't added you to a circle at all, and you think I should be following you (because I know you) you have the means to contact me and let me know where I know you from.
I circle people based on reading preferences of mine, not based on what I post. I post pretty much everything "public" or "limited to circles." If that bothers you and you think anything I post might not be something you want to read please take responsibility for sorting me on your own appropriately.
My political is personal, and my personal is political. I have liberal,
feminist, anti-racist politics, and I do not believe that misogyny,
racism, classism, or prejudice have been eradicated. I don't believe we
live post anything, except possibly common sense.
I am an advocate for privacy, and for public responsibility for your content. I believe that pseudonyms are important and vital for retaining voices from marginalized and underrepresented communities on the internet. I also believe that too many people are willing to be jerks under their real names, believing that the internet has no consequences. For these reasons I support a policy of allowing pseudonymity on G+, and G+ giving users the tools to decide which content is important to them.
I actively "curate" and manage my G+ stream. What this means to you is probably very little unless you're actively disruptive in the commentariat. I aim to keep discussions on track and without derail, especially as G+ currently does not have threaded replies.
reasoned debate, I do not host arguments. I am interested in hearing
your side, but unless you have facts and reasons to back up your
statements, I probably won't take you seriously. And I do believe there
is room for us all in these discussions.
