Reader John Kirsch says I should have asked for his permission before publishing his email about the comments of “common sense.” He is right. My apologies to him.
Kirsch’s note crystallized my dissastisfaction with the quality of the discussion on the site.
The problem is not the views of “common sense,” whose anti-conspiratorial perspective is welcome.
The problem is the overall tenor of the conversation on the site. Often it is excellent. Too often it bores me with its repetitiveness and and unsupported speculation.
Which is to say, I am revisiting the JFK Facts comment policy. I will be moderating the comments more closely from now on. Theoretical statements are not going to be published, even if they accompany factual ones. I may change the comment section radically. I welcome everybody’s thoughts and suggestions.
