Due to the increasing number of posts which I have to delete due to their abusive nature I have decided to introduce User Registration. This experiment will last about a week. It does not prevent anyone from commenting anonymously, but you will need to set up a Google account to do so - just as you do on many (if not most) other blogs. Hopefully it will discourage the astroturfers. We'll see what happens.
This is not intended to restrict anyone commenting at all, but there are only a limited amount of hours in the day and I cannot moderate 3-400 comments a day retrospectively. I'm just not prepared to allow comments from people who call themselves IAIN DALE'S DILDO. I'll allow any comment which disagrees with me politically, even if it is put strongly, but everyone should recognise there are limits.
