Just two short notes on comments here:
All first time comments must be approved (i.e. the first-time you comment on this blog). Thereafter, your comments automatically appear, unless of course you change of your details (like name, e-mail address etc.). Then it counts as a first-time comments and must be approved.
Why? Because people can say really horrible things when they disagree with you. And it’s a shifting process. ‘Trolls’ leave when they are stopped at the door. That’s not to say I will not delete an erring comment. The prerogative so to do is mine. This is a Christian blog and will reflect as such. Things that are sure to get your comment immediately sent into cyber-oblivion are:
1) Insulting a holy, pure and perfect God (that includes His Son).
3) You are free to disagree with me but please: No vulgarities or offensive personal insults directed towards me or others will be tolerated.
Generally I don’t like to police the comments section but it is helpful to remember that you are a guest here. You will be treated as such. Behave as is befitting a guest.
Secondly, I’m off to sleep. It is 23:30 local time. If you’re behind us (South Africa, GMT+2) in, say, the USA (where most of this blog’s visitors stay) or Canada then I’ll only get to see your post at about 04:30. That’s about 5 hours during which your comment (again, if you are a first-time commentator) will hang. Please bear with me. As William Blake put it: ‘Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.’ As soon as I rise and have done those devotions as necessary to the soul, your comment will be attended to.
Thanks, again, for visiting, understanding and bearing with me in the above.
