I think it's about time I had a comments policy, or at least a more explicit one. So here goes:
Hi! I like you already. After all, you came this far. So don't take any of the rest of this personally.
I don't mind if you've worked out where I live or who I am. But I do mind if Google works it out. One thing I am trying to avoid is having people type my city name + "linguistics" into Google and getting this blog as a hit. In that situation, I think my university would be justified in being pissed off if I wrote things that gave it a bad name. So please avoid using the name of this city or the name of my university in your comments.
The other thing I am trying to avoid is future employers googling my name and coming up with this blog. I prefer them to come to the conclusion that hiring me was a mistake later rather than sooner (like, after they have actually hired me). So please also refrain from using my real name in your comments, assuming you know what it is.
Otherwise, almost anything goes. Say what you like to me. I have so little experience with being flamed that I still think it sounds like fun. Be nice to my other commentators, though, please. I kind of like having them around.
