- Put at least a nickname in if you want to be anonymous
- Keep it civil, discuss the position, not the person putting it
- Direct insults because you disagree with the post/commenter will probably get deleted
- Moderate "colourful" language is fine, I swear a bit, but moderation in all things is good
Doesn't mean a thing, of course. But if you're both anonymous and insulting, likelihood is I'll consider deleting the comment. Doesn't mean I will; being called a "statist anti-English twat" amused me so much I let it stand; statist? Anti-English? Right, decentralist and very English, I obviously hate myself and don't know my own opinions...
Lengthy comments: I'd prefer, if you want to really critique something, to do so on a blog of your own, and either trackback or comment to link. Comments are very welcome, but cross-blog conversations are good for all of us; building blogging as a form of dialogue is a good thing. Especially when you start getting comments from your local MP.
Still enjoying this blogging lark a lot though.
