We thought it would be obvious, but clearly, it’s not:
This is a news blog.
A blog for news.
It’s not your personal soapbox.
Every message left on this blog will be screened. If your message doesn’t contain news, a somewhat intelligent comment or anything else of interest, it will go the way of the dodo.
In the interest of our sanity we kindly ask you to go and do something more productive with your time. Extreme ironing, for example. Or removing those TV sets from your children’s bedrooms.
