Guidelines for comments

I like to encourage discussions on my blog but comments might not get through moderation for the following reasons:

  • Promoting or giving advice about a product, treatment, or practitioner
  • Asking for personal advice about medication – please speak to your pharmacist or GP for this
  • Going off-topic – if you’d like to suggest a topic you can use my contact page
  • Being abusive – it’s fine to disagree but keep it polite and respectful towards others
  • Containing information which is untrue, defamatory, or harmful
  • Making illness or disability into a competition about how long we’ve been ill or how severely affected we are – we can’t walk in someone else’s shoes
