Commenting…

There’s been a bit of mischievous muddling going on here again recently (see here and here). The comments zone is a public service offered in good faith to people to argue over the issues contained within the story. Whilst I will resist any misanthropic attempt to close public discussion here, I am not prepared to give anonymous posters an opportunity to make spurious attacks on any public figure. As Damien Mulley says: invisible people have invisible rights! For those in any doubt about the commenting policy here on Slugger, please check it out now.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
