Starting this weekend for about two weeks I’m going on holiday. This will limit what I can do here to a varying extent.
I’ll endeavour to keep the Open Forum and Media watch posts going each day so the community can continue to put things of interest up for discussion.
Due to the high interest in US events and how the Trump presidency is progressing I might also run a daily ‘USA Today’ post unless I have time to put up specific US related posts (or I might do both).
Some days I’ll be able to do more, other days I may not have internet access or time.
Any ideas on what else would be good to keep things ticking over?
Moderation – I will have less time available to do this. I ask that you regular commenters continue with what is usually good self moderation.
If I see anything that needs my attention I’ll park it until i can get around to dealing with it, that may take longer than usual.
Due to nuisance visitors I have left on automatic moderation for first comments.
Automatic moderation also applies if you change your email or pseudonym, and this sometimes happens accidentally due to typos. Bear with me until I can get to it.
Auto moderation also kicks in if a comment has more than three links, this is a standard protection against spam. If you want comments to appear immediately and have a lot of links spread them over several comments.
Thanks again to both regular contributors and occasional visitors, you all help make this work. It has been an active start to the year and should continue with our election coming up and with the interest in Trump and the US, and in Brexit and the UK.
