    There’s not much point in having a reply box for people to comment on blogs if you choose to leave them out by failing to moderate them. Conversely you don’t seem to mind when it gets ‘political’ when people comment about global warming though?

    So far I have never rejected comments made about my blog (I don’t get that many), but I’m beginning to realise that you need to be thick skinned enough to take it or just stop blogging!
