How to submit comments
You can comment and view the comments of others by clicking on the "comments" link associated with each body of rules. It's more efficient for us if you submit comments through the website, and we encourage you to do so. After clicking on the comment link, you will be prompted for your name, which we request, and your email address which need not be your real address. This is a public site. Time does not permit us to acknowledge comments, but all will be considered.
After submitting your comment on the webpage, you probably will get an error message, but your comment has been delivered to a buffer, and I will publish it at the earliest opportunity.
