After some careful thought and consideration, I have decided that the recent spate of users with similar names and similar fascinations with tea towels and stories of people being killed by flying plants, is suspicious to say the least. The way some of the discussions turned into strange cupcake discussions is mildly disturbing.
In a post about my editorial policy last month , I stated
And finally, as previously mentioned, this I my website, and I shall have the final word on what is, and is not acceptable, on this site. I do not guarantee that the same thing will be applicable to each and every person who comes here, as certain people are, in my view, more welcome here than others. Your ability to leave comments here is a privilege, not a right, so treat it as such.
I am now highly convinced that the recent comments were by one person using multiple usernames and a public proxy for the sole purpose of being silly. Most of these comments have been removed, as have the accounts in question. I fear that I may have accidentally deleted a legitimate account, if that is the case you will need to reregister, I apoligise for the inconvenience.
I would really prefer to not have to delete users and comments, but sometimes I have no choice, and when I take this action, it is not something that I take lightly.
