Dear NRO Reader,
Here's a test for you: go to any website that discusses political news and current events and scroll down to the Comments section of the most recent post. (Yes, we dare you to do that, but make sure there are no children present.)
How many comments in before it descends into total anarchy and ad hominem attacks that have nothing to do with the topic of what may be an otherwise insightful article? If it takes three comments, that would be a miracle.
Internet "discussion" has become the worst symptom of one of the ugliest political years in modern history.
But it doesn't HAVE to be that way. How do we know? Because Ricochet.com exists, that's why.
Ricochet.com is the online home for civil conversation and community for conservatives. And, thanks to a recent re-design, Ricochet.com is better than ever.
