Rules of the blog 1

Your feedback has been tremendous, so tremendous that I thought it might be useful to explain which comments will or will not be posted

Your feedback has been tremendous, so tremendous that I thought it might be useful to explain which comments will or will not be posted.

I want to encourage comment, debate, and conversation on Pak Spin—the people must be heard—but some rules are required to ensure that the blog is respectable, reactive, relevant, and rip-roaring fun.

1 Abusive or discourteous comments will not be posted 2 Libellous comments will not be posted 3 Off-topic comments will not be posted (this might include comments that start a side debate about a post by another commenter) 4 Comments longer than 150-175 words will not be posted (that’s the size of the window that I can see to moderate the comments) 5 Comments that do not include a name for the commenter will not be posted 6 Comments that do not include an email address will be not be posted 7 If I discover the email address is a fake, the comment will not be posted/will be deleted 8 Suggestions for playing elevens will not be posted (on the grounds that they become tedious reading after the hundredth batting order) 9 I reserve the right to edit the comment as I see fit before posting (without consultation with the commenter) 10 The blogger’s decision (ie mine) is final
