Groupthink has gotten a lot of new attention over the last couple of days for obvious reasons I do not need to rehash. Given that, I wanted to bring up a few things for our new and regular members:
The rules of the road: http://groupthink.jezebel.com/guide-to-comme…
For our regulars, especially our authors: I highly encourage you to make use of the dismiss function for comments. You have no obligation to entertain or leave racist, argumentative, sexist, or trolling comments or conversations. We ask that, for the most part, we engage each other here with the benefit of the doubt, but there are always comments that are no starters and burners who are here to be jackasses. I'm sure that you can tell the difference.
A hearty congratulations to NC for her excellent post and a big thank you to Chritter, who did the yeoman's work of moderating when the post hit it big and I was off in an unaware and sleepy timezone.
