Much of this blog talks about ideas and ramifications. While this will never be a democracy, it is not insensitive to its users and readers either, for whom it exists. For that reason, I think it’s time for one of our periodic “open threads” where you can talk about whatever you want.
In addition, it would be great if our users spoke up about what they feel is good and bad about the direction of the blog. Too much controversy? Not enough? More articles on current events, or fewer? Should there be more environmental topics, or more social ones? Anything is on the plate, and if you just want to call me an idiot who wants to murder six trillion transgender multiracial Muslim orphans, you can do that too.
