Oh, my, yes.  Yes indeed.  Oh, boy.

But not since about 1990, when we started publishing commentary without advanced notice.

There is no problem with private commentary.  There is no problem with public commentary.  (Every one of us knows how to be polite in front of guests.)

But there is a great deal of problem from private commentary made public.  Announce the policy in advance, remind people that their words are public and on the record, and there should be no problems.
