My patience has been exhausted. The comments page on this blog has been used by some to post very long comments plus diatribes and attacks on other commentators, some times reaching beyond what is acceptable in tone and fairness. I have put up with this for years as long as people were not racist or violent. But now I have had enough. People who submit long comments (that sometimes match the length of my own posts) are abusing the purpose of this blog and so should get their own blog and post there. People who attack others in a personal and threatening manner will be blocked. Expect some of you ‘regulars’ to disappear from the comments page. You can attack me or others on your own blog.
