Blog comments and moderation

A few reminder to blog readers -

This blog is the opinions of a single voter - me. It doesn’t claim to represent SNP policy or any group. I am an SNP supporter and party member because I want independence for Scotland and a nuclear free Scotland. No other UK party offers either of these things.

The blog is open to comments, based on Blogger processes, ID’s etc. I pre-moderate comments, but I cannot edit them - they are either accepted or rejected, and that decision is mine. Don’t post URL links unless you have added the necessary html code - I have no automatic convert facility. If you do so, I cannot publish any of the comment.

Comments are designed to be comparatively brief response to key points or the overall blog, but on big topics, e.g. the referendum, I am happy to accept more extended arguments. If you have a major and extended contribution to make, you must either start your own blog or go to a site that accepts guest articles, e.g. Newsnet Scotland

I don’t accept guest articles.

I don’t welcome posts that repeat at length what I have just said, even though they agree with me, nor do I welcome repetitive posting that simply repeat the same assertions, points of agreement and disagreement, and add nothing new to a discussion.

I welcome vigorous debate and frontal disagreement, and there is no room for delicate flowers who can’t handle equally robust responses, but abuse, etc. is unacceptable, especially when directed at third parties.

Certain comments that I may agree with will not be published because they could leave both me and the poster open to litigation.
