This is my blog. I’ve invested a lot of time and effort into it.
I pre-moderate comments and have total discretion whether or not to publish comments. I will normally only decline to publish those which are spam, or which are abusive or defamatory, but in certain instances I will also decline those which are off-topic or repeated, or where a pattern of behaviour from the poster leads me to conclude that their intention is not to comment on a post itself but rather to continue to pursue a personal obsession.
Sometimes it may take me a while to approve a comment. That almost certainly means nothing other than I’m busy with other things.
There is no appeal or review process.
