I should like visitors to this blog to know that I read each and every comment that is posted. Also, if folk choose to email me separately I also read each and every email that I receive, as well as all of the tweets that I receive. I hope you will appreciate, however, that I can’t reply to every communication that I see; at the last count there were over 80,000 visitors to this site and there are now almost 200 followers, with that number growing all the time. I’m delighted that you read the posts on this blog and participate in the debate. We really do live in extraordinary times.
I do not ‘censor’ any comments, apart from those which I consider to be gratuitously offensive and make no contribution to the debate. In the time that I’ve been operating this blog I have censored just one comment.
