Keep Yo Mouth Shut Beatch

You got NO business here. Peasant! Pretentiousness is our name. In fact, it's our only product!
"But this isn't meant to be your run of the mill blog, infested with trolls and anonymous commenters who feel empowered and protected by that very anonymity to bring down the level of discourse, thus ruining the party for everyone. That is why commenters have to register and provide me with their email address. I fully intend to use my prerogative as editor-in-chief of Scientia Salon to see that the dialogue remains civil and productive. Occasionally, I may reject an unsuitable comment but contact the author and offer the possibility of revising and resubmit the comment."

So get you churlish ass out of here! Out now beatch!
