Moderation Policy

You may not agree with all of what is written here. We do not always agree with everything either, even between the four of us (one of our goals is to read/listen to different perspectives). We are always interested in thought provoking conversation, which is why there are many points of view represented in our guest posts.

The Familiar Strange readers do not want to hear bigotry, racism, sexism, or plain meanness masqueraded as critique. We reserve rights to delete any comments we think unfairly attack an author or a commenter. This means deleting comments that we think are unnecessarily aggressive, lowering the tone or linking to content we judge to be offensive or close-minded.
