House Rules

Last Reviewed: October 2021

This site is aimed at a grown-up, mature audience and I would like everybody who visits and contributes to behave accordingly.

Please treat other contributors, including me, with respect. If we write something, and you disagree, it would be great to know why. I welcome your point of view. The best thing for the blog is that a future reader can see the arguments laid out, side-by-side, and can draw their own conclusion.

But please, remain focussed on the issue under discussion. Please don’t criticise anybody personally. That includesthings like their gender, nationality, race, religion, … Or especially their intelligence. If you feel they have presented a poor argument, then tell us all why it is poor. I want people to feel that this is a safe place to express a view without being subjected to name-calling. I will not allow readers to be bullied into silence, and I’m quite prepared to moderate the blog as necessary..

I can’t believe I had to write that.
