Comment Moderation Policy

We welcome comment and debate on the Blog and have done so ever since we first went online in 2007. A dedicated community of readers return regularly to share their thoughts on the topics we discuss.

Our posting policy is liberal and we do not moderate comments because we disagree with them but of course it is sometimes necessary for us to do so for other reasons.

Some of our house rules are there for legal reasons, and some because we believe it is important to maintain a civil atmosphere in which our readers feel free to express their views without coming under personal attack.

Therefore comments which contain any of the following will be moderated:

  • Libel and defamation
  • Ad hominem remarks, personal abuse, threats
  • Contempt of court – for example, attempting to identify the parties in an anonymised family court case
  • Comments of an unnecessarily personal, inappropriate or intrusive nature, including comments on people’s sexuality
  • Racism and intolerance
  • Commercial messages or advertisements – i.e. spam
  • Wholly irrelevant comments posted purely to try and generate links to other sites
  • Lengthy extracts of articles or material on other sites
  • Links to other websites (except for official and government sites)
  • Readers who repeatedly refuse to abide by these rules will be banned.

Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, people make potentially libellous comments about ex-spouses or other members of their family under their own name. In most such cases we anonymise the comment.
