(We regret that this particular page as well as some of the other more permanently linked pages will now no longer carry individual facility for readers to leave further comments on them, and have therefore become effectively archived. This is because they have became specific targets for unrelated spam postings directed towards this website. All main posts will continue to carry commenting facilities, these can be found by clicking on the main title bar of any specific posting.)
Iraq Inquiry Digest Posting Guidelines:
We welcome comments across this website but would ask posters to please respect the following rules:
Please be polite to other users of this website. We will not tolerate outright rudeness, flaming, spamming or other serious breaches of good netiquette practice. Likewise, instances of trolling, baiting and the issuing of unjustified ‘challenges’ to other posters may result in disciplinary action being taken.
Please do not use offensive language. If you feel the need to use an expletive, we would prefer the occasional use of asterisks (****) instead.
Please post in the English language. We have received a number of posts in Russian, but it takes us time and effort to translate these, and we have found that due to regional variations in vocabulary many online translation programmes cannot resolve these differences.
Please do not cut and paste large chunks of text when a summary with a link would be sufficient. A precis is far more suitable, and avoids potential copyright issues. If you use the work of others, please ensure you acknowledge the identity of the original writer, and also include a link in your post.
We reserve the right to moderate posts and to ban individuals who repeatedly breach the above guidelines. We operate a yellow and red card system, first offences will usually merit a yellow card, other yellow cards may follow dependent on the circumstances of the offence(s), a red card can also be used at any time and will result in a permanent denial of the use of the posting and/or commenting facility here to any person so censured.
We regret having to take these actions when such situations arise, however no further discussion will be entered into about any of these decisions as and when they occur.
We also reserve the right to amend these conditions at any time without further notice.
The following code can be used to format comments:
Links will automatically be made by posting a URL, but please make sure there is a clear space at each end of the address. Please also note that posting any more than one URL in any single comment will automatically require that particular comment to be approved by a moderator – this may delay the appearance of said comment.
Although the comment posting facilities request a user website as well as an e-mail address this first requirement is not strictly necessary. Many spam postings carry such website addresses specifically to gain page ratings on search engines, and are usually subject to moderation and deletion. If a website address appears with a comment and it does not seem applicable to the posted content it is unlikely to appear on this website.
