    Rutherford asked the following question regards this post and policy change at his blog. Ifelt it more apprpriate to answer it here.
    The question:
    Hey Alfie … completely off topic question but I didn’t want to clutter your blog with it.

    Any reason why you became anal on your blog guidelines, even devoting a full post to it? While I have no problem respecting the guidelines when I visit there, you have to admit that demanding that all comments stay on the topic of the post is a pretty high order with this crowd.

    All but the blue addition has been the stated policy of in2thefray since its inception.One could say I have failed to uphold the policy but I have enjoyed and otherwise allowed tangents under the umbrella of thinking adults will be and can be adults. My renewed intent to enforce the policy to the letter is basically because I am putting forth a bit of myself and searching for specific counterpoints therefore comments should focus on the point.
    There will still be posts that will be tagged “open thread” which will be wide open if anyone cares and I’ll be reopening a In2RandomRants page.

    I assume that the policy will be enforced equally regardless of the political tilt of the post. Am I right?

    Does this mean no more “flooding”? Does this mean that when I look at the last twelve posts (under “cannon to the Right, cannon to the Right”), I will be unlikely to continue to find ten of them from the same person?

    Sounds good to me. 😀

    There is a way to comment that runs truly parallel to the posts intent so we will see. this isn’t about ego ala “comment about me”! Its about sharing a view on a subject without going places unnecessarily.
    In follow up the recent comments could conceivably have all the same avatar showing,and it could be yours.

    Except that it wasn’t.

    But they weren’t! They were someone else’s.
