Comments Policy

Comments are moderated for first time commenters and for comments with “spam-like” elements, such as an excessive number of hyperlinks.

So for your second time comment and thereafter, and provided your comment does not trigger the other “unacceptable use” principles stated here, it should appear immediately.

I would love to be able to dispense with comment moderation, but I can’t see how to do that without allowing free rein to the producers of phony comments.

I reserve the right to delete comments I deem as spam, transparent attempts to get traffic without providing any useful commentary, and any contributions which are offensive or inappropriate for civilised discourse.

Links are ok, if relevant to the post: otherwise they will be edited out.

If you experience any problem with posting comments, please contact me immediately and I will see what needs to be done to resolve the situation on a “win-win” basis.
