A few points for commenters here to note:
1. If you do not like my moderation, it is not compulsory to read this blog.
2. I welcome comments from all perspectives and I welcome robust comments.
3. If you wish your comment to be published, be positive, comment on the substance of a post or other comment, refrain from commenting on the style of others' writing, and do not comment on other commenters.
4. Do not speculate. If Fred says X by all means disagree with X but do not speculate that Fred also believes Y.
5. Try to keep on topic.
6. I am considering a cessation of all comments here if the general situation does not soon improve.
7. You are welcome to blame me for the general situation but that will not change 6.
