I love this site and those thousands who comment. You are intelligent, funny, robust and sometimes very confronting.


But there is only myself to run this site and the hours spent trying to delete offensive comments takes from my researching of the many stories you will want to know about on my desk…. (to say nothing of my exploding golf handicap).


Could I ask once again… please don’t attack each other, try to stay on-topic and if you are the victim of an attack, do not respond to it, ignore it. Continue on with your contribution to the debate and you will find others will support you.


From now on, those who continue to say some pretty crook (denigrating stuff) about others, I will assume are trying to destroy our site.


Thanks everyone,
