New comment moderation policy

Most Popular

Last month we introduced a new comment moderation policy.

The policy means our team will moderate all comments before publishing. Previously, moderation occured after publishing – a trust model.

Comment moderation news

The change was necessitated on account of a troll who took advantage of the free comment policy to make ad hominen attacks on contributors or other commenters. There’s always one person who has to ruin it for everyone!

Notwithstanding the change, comments can still be made anonymously, without the need for an account or login, or to enter an email address or other identifying information. We do this to encourage frank discussion and open and democratic debate.

One off troll comments will be edited or deleted. Where the is a pattern of ‘trolling behaviour’, or comments that contain hate speech or defamatory material, persons making such comments will be banned from our platform.

No login required to comment. Name, email and web site fields are optional. Please remember to keep comments respectful. We believe in free speech. Unfortunately, due the actions of one online troll, we have had to implement a manual moderation system to ensure online discussion remains civil and constructive. Your views and voice are important. Your comment will be published after moderation unless it contains hate speech or defamatory statements.
