A word on admin policy

Thus far there have been no problems, so it seems like an excellent time to get in and lay something down, so I cannot be accused of changing the rules halfway through the game.

This is my blog, it’s not somewhere you have to go in order to lead a fulfilling life, it’s not a place you helped build, it’s certainly not the only public space available on which you can scrawl your thoughts. As such you shouldn’t be too upset if I tell you to leave, remove a specific comment, or ban you for a period. Chin up, you’ll get over it. And no, if you think about it, it’s not in any sense a form of censorship in the prerogative meaning.

Generally speaking, I react very badly to insults directed at other commentors, myself, or anyone except a relative handful of right-wing gits. I react badly to spammy behaviour. I’m not too worried about derailing, but if it gets very bad I might remove it. Beyond that relax, I’m fairly generous. If you want to swear, go ahead. I’m certainly not out to ban anybody.

  1. Hasn’t Facebook taught you anything? All moderation is fascism, apparently.
