Jerri-Lynn right here. Some readers is perhaps confused by the obvious contradiction between Sunday’s publish asserting my impending retirement and the looks of my by-line right here right this moment. The reason: I’m certainly retiring, however not ’til the tip of this week. Earlier than then, I’ll be posting a bit right this moment and extra on Thursday, and launching a farewell publish as quickly as I end writing it.

Earlier than then, I need to inform readers how a lot I appreciated the various type feedback they posted in response to Sunday’s announcement. There’s no higher feeling a author can have than to listen to from her readers that they had been touched by – or realized from her writing. And that’s particularly so when the viewers is the NC commentariat – one of the best commentariat.  It’s been such a privilege to put in writing for you.

Thanks a lot!


Lambert and I, and plenty of readers, agree that Ukraine has prompted the worst informational surroundings ever. We hope readers will collaborate in mitigating the fog of battle — each actual fog and stage fog — in feedback. None of us want extra cheerleading and link-free repetition of memes; there are platforms for that. Low-value, link-free pom pom-wavers will likely be summarily whacked.

And for many who are new right here, this isn’t a mere well mannered request. We now have written website Insurance policies and those that remark have accepted these phrases. To forestall having to resort to the nuclear possibility of shutting feedback down solely till extra sanity prevails, as we did in the course of the 2015 Greek bailout negotiations and shortly after the 2020 election, we’re going to be ruthless about moderating and blacklisting offenders.


P.S. Additionally, earlier than additional stressing our already careworn moderators, learn our website insurance policies:

Please don’t write us to ask why a remark has not appeared. We would not have the bandwidth to research and reply. Utilizing the feedback part to complain about moderation selections/tripwires earns that commenter troll factors. Please don’t do it. These feedback may even be eliminated if we encounter them.
