Just a note, we have a contact page under “Categories” on the right side of the website. If you would like to share your opinion with us regarding our comment policy, that’s the place to do it, rather than on random other blog posts.
FWIW, I would also like more public spaces online to discuss some of the issues in the profession currently. But someone has to moderate those spaces, and honestly, the readership here at Fem Phil is such a hodgepodge of people who will practice basic blog etiquette and people who won’t (by say, posting random comments in inappropriate places), that I know I certainly don’t have the energy to write many posts that require heavy moderation.
