Rules for comments

This blog receives hundreds of comments a week – mostly from spammers. They’re filtered out and used for research. Any spammer with a brain would figure out who runs this blog and keep well away, but most of them don’t possess that much thinking capacity.

To prevent spam, every new poster is checked out to some extent before they’re allowed to post freely. First posts that look like they might be spam could be dropped automatically by the spam filters.

Unfortunately this process often leads to a delay in comments appearing; I hope you understand.

However, no valid comment is ever censored – arguments welcomed.

Just three  rules – no swearing, no personal attacks and nothing illegal. Disagree politely. Impolite comments might be edited to remove the profanity and abuse before being let through (if there’s anything of them left). Mild abuse directed to public figures might be okay in a constructive context. If you see anything crossing the line that I’ve missed, please draw it to my attention.

The above notwithstanding, the views expressed by people leaving comments belong to those leaving comments.
