The quality of comments have improved dramatically during the period I and my team have been serving as moderators. I am going to test out releasing the reins again and see how this goes.
Those that violate any of the rules I have previously specified or who even get close to them will see their comments immediately removed and their privilege of participating in the conversation here suspended or permanently banned.
My thanks and appreciation to those who are commenting constructively and debating issues in a civil and respectful manner.
I am flying off tonight to Doha, Qatar to participate as a speaker in the 6th Al Jazeera Forum.
Al Jazeera Director General Wadah Khanfar writes of this upcoming forum on Twitter:
The 6th Aljazeera Forum next week will host youth from the revolutions to discuss the future of the region.
Kewl. More after I get there.
