“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

New Comments Rules

Some recent comments, and my reading of an essay that convinced me of the importance of my role as moderator, has led me to give some new rules:

State your full, real name when you comment or your comment will be not be posted.

Refrain from  name calling, sarcasm and other forms of direct aggression. Comments containing this sort of language will not be posted.

If you were referring to studies that anonymity breeds contempt and deviance from social norms, you have a good point.
