About The Georgia Report
Rules for the Road
We have established a blog on The Georgia Report where readers are encouraged to post comments, if they are so inclined. We only ask that you follow these simple rules:
1. Do not post anything libelous.
2. Smack talkers and trollers not only will be unwelcome, they will be permanently banned.
3. Even when you disagree with someone, it’s still possible to maintain a minimal level of civility. Give it a try.
4. When all else fails, remember these words: Don’t be a jerk.
We thank you.
There is definitely no logic to human behavior.
