Reposting the OTE “mensch rule” re comments

Summary:
Originally posted here. I don’t have time to read every comment in detail but if I may say so myself, the level of commenting here at OTE is generally quite high, so thanks all for your substantive responses. However, while I welcome debate, I decidedly do not welcome personal swipes (targeted at me or anyone else), or anything that veers, in my less-than-humble opinion, into non-menschiness.  When I see that, I’ll typically kill the comment or in rare cases, edit that part out.
