There's only one Clive Betts (if signed-in)

I don't mind answering emails while on leave, and today, took time out to answer one that was sent by the journalist Clive Betts of Cambria Politico. He's felt the need - and quite rightly so - to remind everyone that we shouldn't believe all that we read on the internet. He goes into detail in his post 'Forgery on the blogosphere and a lot of internet rubbish' - which is understandable.

Speaking for myself, I only believe the commentary of other bloggers is said with conviction if they've 'signed-in' to leave a comment. The comments made by those that are anonymous are always welcome, and received and taken with a pinch of salt.

This blog always welcomes anonymous comments under our own set of terms - this is done for numerous reasons. Whether those comments are from those that try to help in some way; those that don't; those that have clearly had one drink too many; and even those that are clearly insane (mainly politically).

If I ever decide to come out of the blogging closet, I am sure to agree to meeting up for a coffee with Mr Betts, gladly chatting on life and blogging down the bay.

Now that I've felt the need to write a post of my own on the matter, I can go back to reading my book. Holidays are better spent without internet access!

Quite right too! It's time you clamped down on bloody imposters!

Or should that be... Quite right too! It's time I clamped down on bloody imposters!

Always good to have an example to demonstrate meaning :)

Definitely was a forgery in Clive's name though, responding to a comment which seemed to be forged in mine. Though of course there are other curiously named Daran's out there and if it was genuinely one of them, then I retract the paranoia.

"I only believe the commentary of other bloggers is said with conviction if they've 'signed-in' to leave a comment."

Wise policy.

Daran, I believe your every word but not your paranoia :)
