Up to now I have chosen not to delete comments which are offensive or that attack me personally. I don’t think I am an overly defensive person and believe I am open to valid comments and criticism.
By the same token if someone has a personal axe to grind or wishes to be abusive then I am not going to be their whipping block.
In recent weeks I have had several comments (since deleted) that have been abusive and offensive from a person who does not know me personally. I have offered to speak with this person face to face if there really is an issue, but this offer has never been taken up.
Future comments of this nature or from this person will also be either banned or deleted
If you don’t like what you read here then there is a simple solution – don’t read it – or disagree in a tone that engages debate rather than simply being hostile.
