We have a few simple policies for posters and commenters to make the Indian Philosophy Blog a welcoming place for all involved:
Be polite. If you must attack, attack the argument and not the person.
Be relevant. This is a blog about South Asian philosophy; posts and discussions should be related in some clear way to South Asian philosophy, however defined.
Be scholarly. Blog writing is more conversational and provisional than traditional scholarly writing, and we expect that contributors will share prima facie thoughts, not necessarily their settled opinions. At the same time, posts should at least be informed by relevant scholarship; claims about South Asian thinkers and texts should be verifiable through reference to primary texts or refereed scholarly sources.
Posts and comments that violate these rules may be deleted. Repeat offenders may be banned. The authors of individual posts have the right to deem specific comments inappropriate according to their own interpretation of these rules.
