1. Comment Moderation
All comments will be moderated. The moderators reserve the right to delete or edit any comment using profanity, inappropriate language or making potentially defamatory, libelous, abusive or in any way illegal statements. Be respectful even when debating with someone with whom you disagree. Verbal abuse of any kind will not be tolerated.
Comments are also subject to editing for brevity and clarity, so do keep comments shorter than 200 words. It is the intention of the moderators, however, to maintain the essential meaning of all comments, as long as they abide by the standards of civility described above.
2. Valid Email Address
Anonymous comments are not allowed. You must have a valid email address associated with yourÂ account, and include your full name and town of residence. The comments of readers who list an invalid email address or an address that cannot be accessed by straightforward means, and who do not reveal their names and towns of residence, are subject to deletion.
