Comment Policy

They say if you haven’t anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all, but here we subscribe to a different principle: If you don’t have anything of substance to say, don’t say anything at all.

To put it another way:

  • If your comment consists entirely of ad hominem and profanity
  • If your comment does not address any arguments or points made by the post
  • If your comment can be translated into “reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”

Then your comment will not be published and will go straight to spam.

If we said something wrong, by golly, please prove us wrong. If we said something that triggers you or hurts your feelings, go screech somewhere else.

Antelopes don’t care about your feelings.

Please be aware: Nixon is usually the one who approves comments, and he does not have access to WordPress while at work. If you have left a reasonable comment and it does not appear to get approved, it’s probably because he hasn’t seen it yet; be patient because if you then send him nasty emails calling him a coward for not approving your comment, he will probably be rather unkind.
