This is a thing about why different online communities need different commenting policies. There is a lot of stuff left out, but I am hoping it contributes to the conversation, anyway, because it is an interesting conversation! (I am hoping Tom Ewing pipes up when he is not dealing with home repairs.) Is there a good guide out there to how to differentiate communities/cultures online? Network analysis or something? Basically I waded into waters I am only vaguely familiar with and splashed around for a while.
