In response to readers’ requests, I have been monitoring comments and deleting those in three categories: (a) pornographic, (b) vulgar, and (c) personal rather than focused on the issues under discussion.
To expand on (c): I welcome comments on any aspect of issues related to food politics, regardless of whether I do or do not agree with the positions expressed.
I am deleting comments that focus exclusively on the personal.
For example, I am deleting comments like ”she only posts comments that agree with her position.” Comments like this are not only false, but add nothing to the discussion of the issues.
I very much regret having to do this.
Next public appearance
I’m going to do a talk (with slides) and sign copies of Eat Drink Vote, 6 to 8 p.m. The event is sponsored by CQ Roll Call and Hooks Books. It’s at Roll Call headquarters- 77 K Street NE, 8th floor. Public event. Register here.
