Blog changes

Those who have read here for a while have noticed certain features come and go. The weekly free commenting will no longer be weekly. We'll put up a thread every few weeks as we have the time to moderate it or see the need. With the holidays coming up and the moderators' own schedules to consider, we may be having fewer posts to cut back on our workload. You may also notice that fewer comments are approved, as we have discussed some new guidelines and reaffirmed some old ones. Since I've seen a lot of comments coming through about "free speech," just a reminder that there is no right of free speech when commenting on someone else's blog. It's kind of like visiting with us, so we do not have to be "at home" to everyone who calls or has something to say.
