Here's what has to happen, though. I'll have to patrol each and every thread several times a day, to go through and delete offensiveness. That's a lot of extra work. If it becomes too much, I'll turn comment moderation back on.
So, give me a little bit and I'll see what I can do about the comments.
If you guys can knock off the "Dave is an Asshole" crap, we'll be all good. In fact, it's probably best if you just don't even mention him. Not even obliquely. I really would like some more of you guys comment here, and not just on the science stuff.
One more observation. If you guys were much of a fan club, I'd at least have my own thread.
