I have noticed a few new commenters making work for our wonderful moderation team lately so I thought that now would be a good time to offer a refresher course on Moderation.

I understand that for many of you who are new here you will not be used to forums that do not allow personal attacks, insults or foul language. We have higher expectations of our commenters than other blogs as we view comments as valuable and interesting content for our readers.

For those of you who like to swot before a test you can read the rules here first: 

Do you want:

  • Ad-free access?
  • Access to our very popular daily crossword?
  • Access to daily sudoku?
  • Access to Incite Politics magazine articles?
  • Access to podcasts?
  • Access to political polls?

Our subscribers’ financial support is the reason why we have been able to offer our latest service; Audio blogs.

If you agree with me that’s nice, but what I really want to achieve is to make you question the status quo, look between the lines and do your own research. Do not be a passive observer in this game we call life.
