I welcome comments on this blog – please note they are moderated before publishing.

Any comments that are offensive, libellous, overly repetitive or too far off-topic will not be published.

There may be times when I will want to contact a commenter for clarification before publishing a comment – so please do use a real email address. If you use a fake email address, please don’t be surprised, or disappointed, if I don’t publish your comment.

You must be sure that you have a legal right to submit a comment and that it does not infringe the right of any other persons. You will be responsible for any costs arising if it is found that that you are in breach of this condition.

If a commenter leaves a comment which I decide not to publish, that is my right and by leaving a comment you accept this condition. I very rarely edit a comment before publishing but I also reserve the right to do this if I deem it necessary.

I may choose to let others know that a commenter has left a comment which I have not published, in which case I will publish the commenter name and date of the comment with a reason that the comment was not published using snip-squared brackets eg [snip – libellous] or [snip – overly repetitive].
