Before I blogged for the first time, I set myself a few rules, which I believe I have worked by, they include the following:
I do not engage in personal abuse.
I do not personalise discussion; I see no need to do that.
Friendly, acceptable banter by both sides is not in my ‘offensive’ category.
Clarify possible misunderstandings.
On one occasion when a new person on the scene did not understand the process, following explanation, all was well and stayed well.
However, I do strongly object to offensive and abusive comments and responses; they are ignorant and unnecessary. This is a friendly site and I have always enjoyed the people I have had contact with. I am grateful for the time they give my blog and my thoughts.
