It's been a while since I've said this, so I might as well say it again: the rule for comments is no ad hominem. Comments making personal attacks toward anyone who might be likely to read it here will be rejected, regardless of how pertinent or thoughtful the rest of the comment might be.
We've received several informative comments recently which end with an unacceptable "parting shot." I have no ability to edit the comments; I can only moderate them—that is, say is "yes" or "no." One cheap shot disallows the entire comment.
