We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

BP lawyers/money are controlling research process/data. In present corporate power structure we can predict negative findings re BP with 100% accuracy.
Whole ecosystem is destroyed/weake ned by oil spill - and the proof is BP OIL in the dead/killed organism - especially in keystone specie like dolphin ..does not mean much - except for ignorant lawyers.
seems that Noami Klein knows more ecology than "NOAA officials". If you are on the top of the food chain and your food (invertebrates) are destroyed by oil spill - your organism is weak, susceptible to disease - oil absence in the body of dolphin or turtle means NOTHING.

In less than a year we have seen two E.L.E.-Extincti on Level Events-first the BP oil spill and now the Fuk U Shima nuclear disaster. The only thing left, I fear, is to choose the manner of our death, as the time has been chosen for us by the greed and Evil of corporations and that time is fast approaching.

95% of the cancer in US is caused by chemicals - strawberries loaded with pesticides. Dogs at 8 years of age having $5000 "cancer" operation.
I believe that all this poison is not only exterminating animals.
"by the greed and Evil of corporations - PROFIT, PROFIT, PROFIT - western "civilization".

Surprise! Oil affects living things! Chemicals wash ashore, run through rivers, wash into underground water systems, are blown into underground water systems during fracking, mining and simply peeing into your toilet.

Anarchist 23, your Fuk U Shima coin is priceless. Our only weapon, really, is sarcasm.

I guess the Politicians are gearing up to eat humans. May their genetic foods get them all.

BP lawyers are in control of data and results from all these scientific ships.
And guess what "results" will be published - ALL OIL EVAPORATED!
Classic example how US government works.
