    Truepundit is a news aggregator site that has tremendous potential as a place where lots of healthy conversations can go on; that’s why the early-in-the-life-of-the-comment-system snowflaky editing of comments is so tremendously off-putting. That editing makes Truepundit no better than the LSM. Anyway, it’s your site, your rules.
