After a month of comment moderation being off, I have switched it back on due to the enormous number of anonymous people who have returned to troll and smear. They will, in future, find many of their comments moderated out as they are stifling proper debate for everyone else. I have no objection to anonymous comments in general as I know there are people who comment on here who for genuine reasons cannot reveal who they are. But some are now abusing the privilege.
UPDATE: If you do post anonymously, please use some sort of pen name or pseudonym. It's quite difficult to follow a debate if half the people are called Anonymous.
UPDATE: To those in the comments who see a conspiracy theory in everything I do, can I just point out that the default position on this blog for the last two years has been that comment moderation has been on. Only in the last month has it been switched off. Initially it was OK, but as usual, people have abused the privilege so it's gone back on.
