Please read the following before posting comments on this blog.

It is the policy of this website to delete any comment posts containing insulting, rude, offensive or unsociable behivour. While constructive debate is always welcome, commentary that is deemed to be offensive such as name calling, racist remarks, or personal insults or attacks will be deleted and the IP address of the poster blocked. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions do not post a comment on this website.

Keep On Topic

Comments are there as a courtesy to provide discussions on the particular subject of the post you are commenting on. Please keep comments on topic. If you have issues with the blog or how it’s written the comments section is not the place to air them. You can use the contact form to contact me directly if you have concerns. 

Keep it Civil

This blog has a zero-tolerance policy towards comments containing insults of any kind. Any insult, hate speech, racist remark or anything that I or a moderator deems to be offensive will be removed. If you disagree with what I write or say, or what any other commenter says, using insulting or hatefull language, or calling names is not the way to deal with it. If you believe that there's something in the blog or commentary that has offended you or that you feel is incorrect then send me a direct message using the contact form.

About Spelling and Typo’s

As this is a blog, written by a single person, I do not have the luxury of a dedicated editorial staff to proof read everything I write. I do my best, but occasionally in my haste to post (and get back to work) typos, grammar errors etc. will slip through. If you do spot something a nicely worded email (or use the contact form) pointing out any typos will be appreciated. The purpose of the comments is to have a discussion about the topics in the article, not about the writing, so while I appreciate a heads up on any typos or mistakes, I will delete any comments about spelling as they are not constructive to the discussion and pollute the comment thread.

Additionally, comments insulting me, blanket derisive comments about my writing style and so on will be deleted, and the user banned and blacklisted on Disqus.

Freedom of Speech

Commentary on this blog is provided as a courtesy to promote discussion on individual posts. It is not an open forum for you to say whatever you want. Comments will be deleted for the above reasons. I appreciate a healthy debate, and appreciate disagreements so long as they’re kept civil.
