Background and Rules

This blog has been established to encourage unfettered discussion and polite debate on topics broadly relating to Catholic liturgy.

Ever notice how some blogs (we won't mention any names) delete or censor comments the blog administrators simply don't agree with? That won't happen here. In fact, there's only a few simple rules:
  • Try to stay (reasonably) on-topic.
  • No profanity or obscenity.
  • No threats of violence, against anyone.
  • We discourage insults and verbal attacks as well, but we don't plan on playing internet policeman.  If you don't like what someone says, ignore it.
  • No shameless self-promotion.  If you've written a book, maybe you can get away with descretely mentioning that, but we don't want to hear about your dog-walking service or your new jewelry line.
  • You can post under your real name if you must, but I'd encourage use of a pseudonym.  There's a lot of weirdos out there, and they want to know where you live.
We also invite readers to suggest topics for open, unchained discussion.  Have your comments been deleted from a blog?  Then email us a link to that post and send along your unsuccessful but insightful comment.  Doesn't matter if it's a 'progressive' or 'traditionalist' blog: if it's relevant to PTU, then we'll post your thoughts, a few of our own, and invite comments from others.

Remember: whenever you comment on someone's blog, save a copy for yourself. You might need to use it here!
