Rules of Engagement

About this site

This is my personal site and I write it for my own personal satisfaction.  Readers are encouraged to comment, debate and discuss.  I moderate all comments and publish most, unless they appear (to my totally subjective gaze) to be defamatory, spammy, hate-mongering, not particularly constructive, or just plain rude/crude.

It’s fine to disagree with me, but I’m unlikely to publish your comment unless you display a modicum of style and intelligence. For example if your comment is just swearing and being unimaginative it’s probably not going to be published. Also if you do not provide a real name/identity/email I may choose not to publish your comments. Real people who stand by their comments are cool!

This site discusses ideas but does not purport to provide formal business, technology, psychology or finance advice.  Readers should seek (and probably pay for) advice of that nature from a professional source. If you want to retain my professional services there is more information on
