Censorship Policy

1. Do you ever edit comments made by other people?

No, but in the unlikely event that I did I would make it clear that I have edited the comment by noting the changes I made, so it does not look like they wrote it.

2. How often have you had to edit a comment?


3. Are you liable for comments other make on this blog?

The advice that I have had is that in some circumstances yes I can be. That is why I reserve the absolute right to delete or edit anything on this blog. The advice from a barrister who specialises in Internet law is that if I had knowledge of the comment, and did not delete it, then I could have liability. As all comments made get e-mailed to me, it would be hard for me to deny knowledge.

4. So if you sometimes delete comments, how often and why?

I delete thousands of commercial spam comments every month. Have I mentioned I detest spammers?

I will also delete any comments made by someone I have banned from commenting on my blog. Only one person has been so banned in 12 months. How you get banned will be dealt with in my Posting Policy.

5. Do you ever edit your own postings, after publication?

Generally only for typos that I have noticed or had pointed out. If new content is added on, this will generally be noted as an update.

I do not cave to blackmail or legal threats ever.
