I know, this is a bit of a haven. I’ve seen the kind abusive comment that other blogs suffer.
Mostly, we get really fantastic comments here – clear, articulate, evidence-based and thoroughly enhancing my often sketchy starters. I love it, man!
I’m rarely verbally abused and you rarely abuse each other. If I see anything of that kind, I delete it. If I miss some, as I must, email me and I’ll deal with it.
More frequently, recently, it seems some posts, though not perhaps abusive, are getting a bit annoying, a touch patronising, maybe rude and often so long and opaque that they annoy those following what they thought was a thread.
I’m against top-down censorship so can I ask everyone to self-censor a bit, in everyone’s interest?
The occasional off-topic comment on something important, for which there is no current spot, is welcome, of course but, otherwise, try to stay mostly with it.
Finally, don’t get mad, learn not to see that which could irritate and sail gracefully by until you pick up the prevailing wind?
Peace be with you and don’t bust your blood vessels.
