Setting the Tone


For John, BLUFSetting the tone is important.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



This is just a theory, but it seems that when the blogger is cranky and argumentative, the comments are cranky and argumentative.  I cite as my example this post from Law Professor Ann Althouse.  The post is titled "A bill in Massachusetts that would require you to get permission from a judge in order to have sex in your own home."

Remember, this theory isn't about the proposed law or even about the Commonwealth's Constitution, which allows a citizen to put forward a bill.  Nor is it about George Soros and his tools, such as Think Progress.

Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
