A rather interesting discussion is developing in the comments to “Ask A Question“, but it’s becoming more and more off-topic, and I’m also concerned that it is inappropriate for the discussion to be in that thread with no PTSD trigger warnings, so I’m going to shift all the comments here and delete their text there with a pointer to this thread.
Bear with me while I port them over. (Addendum: done now)
This is how this thread started:
Okay, I’m sorry that this is a bit of necromancy, but I just felt I had to respond to the thread on rape.
I should have pointed it out more quickly, but this illustrates a lack of attention to the first paragraph of the Comments Policy from both Jason and myself (emphasis changed):
On-topic and constructive comments, suggestions and criticism welcome. Because this blog generally addresses ongoing social situations rather than current events, comments are encouraged on older posts: the issues aren’t going away, after all.
So, in future, posters should feel free to add comments to the original post, please. That’s where the discussion will be on topic, or if it does drift off-topic, I can always start a new thread then.
