I've had to do a little snipping lately on the comments, so let me take a moment to request that readers please avoid profanity or sexually suggestive remarks in their comments. I'm not writing specifically for kids, but I want kids to be able to read the site without any problems with them or their parents. Also, while it can be appropriate to criticize players in certain contexts, please do so only when there's a clear link based on publicly available evidence. It's easy to destroy someone's reputation and very hard to rebuild it, so please be very careful about this.
