Commenting Guidelines

  • Debate/banter is fine. Personal insults, flippant attacks and derogatory comments are not acceptable. Sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, or ageist comments will also not be tolerated.
  • Please keep potentially offensive religious remarks out of comments. We appreciate that there are many words in everyday use that only upset fundamentalists. These we consider acceptable in the right context.
  • Any comments deemed inappropriate will be deleted at our discretion, and we also reserve the right to delete replies to deleted comments, entire threads, or close the comment section for entire articles at any time.
  • Try to keep comments on-topic to the post in question in which you're replying to.
  • If you see a comment that you think breaks our code of conduct, please email philofaxy at gmail dot com Philofaxy is a place for all Filofax users of all abilities: try to help one-another.
  • Grammar is not an exact science, commenting about bad grammar on the blog is also taken as being a personal insult. If it really matters to you that much, can we suggest that a polite email is the best way of addressing the issue.
  • These rules are non-negotiable and may be amended at any time. The commenting code of conduct can always be found at Please feel free to refer to this if you see anyone breaking the guidelines.
