In our zeal for balance, we have allowed ignorance to be perpetuated.
- All posts are public, and beware, I post a LOT!
- Be civil, even when disagreeing (no name calling or belittling) or be blocked.
- If you're going to comment on an article or +1, read it; please don't comment on just the headline.
- I do not necessarily agree with every article I post or +1. Articles are a springboard for discussion.
- To keep from being automatically removed from my Circles, make sure you have at least one public post every 2 months (requirement of the extension I use to clean-up inactive people).
If you don't like what I post, either have a discussion with me or simply 'de-circle' me. If all you want to do is tell me I'm wrong with no discourse, I probably don't belong in your Circles. I love a good debate and to hear from people who disagree with me. Opposing opinions make us think!
So far, there's quite a good group of us talking about these topics.. I'd love to see a few more conservatives (no desire for a hivemind G+ experience) jumping in! People who cannot discuss a subject without resorting to personal attacks or belittling the intelligence of others to make a point will be blocked. None of us learn from that. We need to be able to openly discuss our disagreements.
I also use my Circles to filter my incoming content, not outgoing. If you Circle me and don't like frequent posting on the above topics, be sure to move me to a Circle you check less often :)
I periodically remove people from my Circles that do not post publicly, please contact me if you believe your removal was in error. Also, if you are interested in engaging, please have a profile picture/avatar. I don't Circle people without them. It's confusing to keep up with my stream when the same bunch of blue heads are next to posts from different people. What can I say.. I'm old and need visual aids ;-P
