Not sure if this applies, but some sites are now asking posters to follow this informal style: In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by Jeffrey Weiss – they are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and they are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. This might separate the wheat from the chaff here at MobileRead, too, no?
