A word to commentators

Posted on: 26 November 2011

To all commentators

You’ll have noticed that I answered someone saying that although I have Twitter I rarely use it. The fact is that I write opinion pieces of approximately 700 words on a specific subject, as a weekly contributor to The Chronicle, Canberra, hoping it might spur readers into replying to the editor with brief opinions .

These pieces are what you see posted on Allan Takes Aim.

Unfortunately with regard to Allan Takes Aim many correspondents send replies that have no connection with the blog and in many cases seem copies of comments they have read about blogs on other websites. And let me reiterate a previous comment that using the word ”about” is of no great value if I don’t know what your comment is “about.

Unfortunately as checking the comments can take some time and also take up valuable download space, I have been forced to delete what might be many valuable comments.

Your ends will be better served, as will mine, by you taking time to compose your opinion about my blog. For me the quality of comment is more important than the quantity, so don’t stop trying.

Let me end also by saying to people for whom English is not their first language that good ideas are more important to me than good grammar.
