Comment rules

I reserve the right to delete or edit anything. It’s my web site, I pay for the hosting.

Unacceptable comments

Comments that will incur my wrath include:

  • Spam. This gets deleted. Thankfully Akismet gets most of it.
  • Comments which (like spam, really) are irrelevant to the topic at hand.
  • Anything plainly designed to offend, be it aimed at myself, my friends, or whoever.
  • Anything else deemed inappropriate.

Think of it as being a bit like going to the pub. Everybody’s welcome, but if you’re just causing trouble, insulting other people or annoying the proprietor, you’ll be ejected.

If you want to rant about the topic of your choice, this is not the place to do it. Get your own blog.

Old posts

New comments are currently disabled 60 days after the post has gone out, in an effort to cut down on comment spam. This may be subject to change.

Leave an email address

E-mail addresses are never shown on the pages, to avoid spammers picking them up. But they do get stored in the database, so I can reply personally if I have to, and they also enable your comments to be automatically approved in future — comments without email addresses always have to be approved.

Mind you, it doesn’t need to be a real email address — anything used consistently (for example @example.com) will avoid the moderation queue after the first time.

  1. I’ve read your posts with interest and note that you mention The Leader story on my shop, Mad Flowers McKinnon struggles to survive during level crossing works.
    The story now….
    I sacraficed, altered my business plan, sold off personal items just to hang in there until the project was completed.
    Eventually I had to start selling shop fittings. It broke my heart that even with all the sacrafices my kids and I had made, to keep my beautiful shop going that at the end of trade Mothers Day 2016 (after 3 years of trade) I closed the doors for the last time. The level crossing project had killed my business along with 35 others in Ormond, McKinnon and Bentleigh. I’m angry that LCRP did not listen to traders concerns. I’m angry and dissappointed that Nick Staikos our local MP was always unavailable to speak us. Im angry, dissappointed and DISGUSTED with our local upperhouse member MP Philip Dalidakis Minister for small business considered us collateral damage. I’m even more angry to see exactly the same lies are being told to the Cheltenham traders/ residents regarding their LCRP. I fully expect that all the communities in LCRP areas are having the same experience. Schools, kinders and sports clubs in these suburbs planning their usual fundraising activities through donations from local businesses……yeah good luck with that!
