To address some confusion and some complaints, I want to talk about topicality in posts.

If you've got post authority here, it's because we think you have sparkling, interesting things to say about science and pop culture and science fiction and fantasy and nerd culture and everything relevant and tangential to io9.

That is not to say that we don't want people to be personal, but it is to say that we'd like to keep most posts to that topic. Things like Nivenus's suicide discussion are tangential but well-written and poignant.

What I am saying here is that we're not looking for posts about site drama or angry rants about off topic stuff.

I removed one today but haven't removed that poster as a poster. Just want to say keep it on topic where you can and where you can't, keep it interesting and relevant to our interests.
