I’ve been receiving many complaints about the comments. I dislike doing this, but I’m changing the policy.
- Comments with meaningless abuse such as “Briggs you’re an idiot and a great sinner”, however accurate they may be, and directed toward anybody, do nothing to add to the discussion, and so will be deleted. I sometimes miss deleting inappropriate comments, so if I miss your transgression, do not read anything into it.
- Any comment with foul language and the like will be deleted, the user suspended or banned. These comments are automatically deleted, never to be seen.
- Long, rambling, not-to-the point comments may be deleted. Repeat offenders might be suspended. You’d be surprised how many people email me and complain about this.
- If you repeat a transgression, you will be banned or suspended from commenting.
- The terms of suspensions and bans are my own, since I am dictator of this site.
- The last step, and one I am avoiding because of the work, is to moderate all comments. I pray it doesn’t come to that.
