In our recent post Shannon Watts Looking at Run for Congress in Colorado CD-2 TTAG commentators got personal in their attacks on Ms. Watts, many of which were sexual and extremely demeaning. Just a quick reminder . . .
TTAG does not allow ad hominem attack on the website, its authors, fellow commentators and subjects of our articles — no matter how pithy. We do this because we strive to make this website accessible to people who may not share our views on the importance of American gun rights.
Many of our articles use rational thinking and statistical analysis to counter the antis’ anti-gun agitprop. We want these articles to appeal to reason so that people sitting on the firearms freedom fence can consider them without fear or favor.
Comments that attack anti-gunners on a personal level make this site — and you — look mean-spirited and irrational. You’re better than that. FWIW, more than 70 percent of our readers are college-educated or better.
Believe me (not to coin a phrase), I know that the antis deserve our scorn and contempt. But since its inception TTAG has tried to take the high road. So we delete ad hominem attacks in the comments section.
This policy is not open to debate. However, feel free to let loose in the comments below — as long as you don’t get out your flamethrowers.
