Comment Policy

I want this to be a friendly place to visit and share viewpoints. When commenting on articles or blog posts, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
1) Don’t post personal information. Anyone’s.
2) Be polite and stay on topic.
3) Disagreeing is fine, as long as it’s polite. Telling someone their beliefs or perspective about anything is stupid, garbage, sh*t, etc. is not polite.
4) No spamming or advertising in comments.

Comments may be moderated or may require approval before being posted.
Charles, who I used to work with in the crystals industry may assist in moderating comments.
Anything not following these guidelines will be removed without notice, and the commenter may be blacklisted from commenting at the site at my discretion.

All other terms and conditions apply as well as the privacy policy.
