COMMENTING

At Morning mail we are not adverse to free speech. We are, however, adverse to be dragged before the many tribunals staffed by galahs like those in the Human Rights Tribunal, or being fined, or made to apologise.

We cannot attempt to cover the field of expressions that can get us into trouble because those idiots keep getting aggrieved at a word they were not aggrieved at before.

The way we will handle dangerous words and phrases is to [snip]—that doesn’t mean we don’t agree with your right to expression.

Sometimes [snipping] is time consuming and leaves the comment wanting, even senseless. In such cases the comment will be deleted. However, if we have to keep doing it to one particular commenter we will flag that comment with a [YELLOW CARD].

Overall, MM’s commenters submit well constructed sentiments that are respectful of others on this site and do display an understanding of the basics of defamation, etc. We thank you in advance.
