I'm policing the comments now.  I've already deleted a bunch and banned several IPs, and it's amazing how much more civil the arguments are already. But apologies to any trolls who thought they had a safe harbor to troll, and wasted their precious time writing comments I deleted.  There's no safe harbor.  As of now, if I don't like your comment, I'll delete it.
