Feel free to question anything on here – I usually (time permitting) welcome a bit of a challenge, as the whole point of this thing is to test the few opinions I do have and to prompt me to form opinions about those areas I haven’t yet considered. (Don’t always expect a response, however - I have a stupidly bad memory, and often forget.)
Generally speaking, no comments will be deleted unless I get official complaints or they're spam.
The comments section to this post attracted a rather odious BNP supporter. I indulged him for a while until I got bored. He wasn’t deleted, because he was on topic. Sort of.
This should be ample proof that I couldn't care less if you disagree with either my actual opinions or what you believe to be my views, and will usually let you state what you think in the comments even if I disagree with you utterly and find your views offensive.
I do, however, tend to get a bit pissed off if you start attacking me for things I haven't said, or go off on a tangent to the post in which you are commenting to try and get a response on some other issue. I may even start swearing at you. Childish, I know - but it's my blog and I'll do what I cunting want with it.
Repeated off-topic postings and unrelated rants about my views (actual or perceived) on other subjects may be subject to deletion – partially to tidy the place up, but largely because these things bore me.
If you want to challenge me on a particular topic or a particular opinion you think I may hold, wait until I post about it. If you’re really keen, email me and ask me to post about it so that we can have an argument. I may indulge you - I like to try and keep readers involved, and generally try to take part in discussions in the comments boxes once they kick off.
Be civil. Especially if it’s your first post, be polite – otherwise you’ll probably end up being told to fuck off and then ignored.
In any case, if you have the desire to be rude to me after reading one post, it's almost certain that you've either missed the point or haven't quite grasped the concept that just because the majority of the internet is filled with abusive morons doesn't mean it ALL has to be.
But mainly - check out some of the rest of the blog before leaping to conclusions. Cheers.
