House Rules

First of all, I’m really uncomfortable writing this. This site is aimed at a grown-up, mature audience and I’d like to think that everybody who visits and contributes would behave accordingly, but unfortunately I have found that this is not the case.

Please treat other contributors with respect. If they write something, and you disagree with them, I welcome your point of view. This will allow any future reader to see opposing views side by side, to weigh them up, decide for themselves, and therefore enriches the blog.

But please, keep your focus on the issue under discussion. If you want to criticise somebody personally, forget it. That means things like their gender, nationality, race, religion etc. Or, their intelligence. Comments of that nature are not welcome here. Your comment will be deleted and you will be blocked. I don’t want contributors like you. No second chances, you’re gone, end of.

I can’t believe I had to write that.
