Comments policy

We welcome comments on our blog and accept any reasonable or constructive comments that contribute to debate.

Comments aren’t posted for public view until they have been checked.

Email addresses are required for commenting, and they’re not published on the blog, or shared. They may be used to privately contact the commenter.

Comments that include offensive or inappropriate language, or are considered to be rude and offensive, will be edited or deleted.

We will not post comments that include personal attacks.  The content of the post can be argued or questioned, but personal attacks on bloggers or other commentators are not permitted.

Comments that include advertising are not permitted. Neither are inappropriate and offensive usernames.

A comment which isn’t relevant or goes off on an inappropriate tangent may be edited, or deleted.

If your comment doesn’t appear within a reasonable time period, and you know that it doesn’t infringe our comments policy, please contact us.

Anyone who infringes our comments policy may be blocked from commenting on our blog.

We reserve the right to edit, delete, move, or mark as spam any and all comments. We also have the right to block access to any individual or group of people from commenting, or from the entire blog.
