(I’ve adapted aspects of this comments policy from Crooked Timber.)
I welcome comments on posts, but you do so as a guest in my space.
I will delete comments which are clearly unsuitable, including comments which strike me as defamatory, insulting or provocative.
If a comment seems to me to be stupid or irrelevant, I may also delete it in the interests of keeping the conversation at a reasonable level.
I will do my best to use my power responsibly, you can tell me if you disagree with what I have done, and I will try to consider your views open-mindedly. But in the end, this is my space, it has my name on it, and unsuitable comments affect my reputation.
Thank you for understanding!
