Firstly if the comment is removed it makes guys comment look idiotic cause
it has no context by refering to somthing that isnt there, and as far as I
know there has never been cocencous on that type of thing apart from leaving
them. (shit if its there before anyone has replied and rubbished it by all
means remove it)
if we remove all offending comments when others have already rightly replied
and rubbished what they say and come up with facts or good arguments then
those people who defend imcuk or the original articles will stop putting
their input into the pages because their comments will look stupid if not in
context, what then?
secondly Im not running a vendetta againt anyone that would be a waste of
BUT I do think that some take the editorial guidlines too literally.
The definition of guideline is "A guideline is any document that aims to
streamline particular processes according to a set routine. By definition,
following a guideline is never mandatory"
and as such imo this unbending policy goes toward excluding people from the
site or at least not encoureging more people to come to it as ive said
before its great to preach to the converted but dosnt it make sense to try
and get our various messages across to people (the large majority of
society) who dont know what we are on about and who just might see our point
