THE POINT OF COMMENTS
From time to time NAUTICAL LOG has found it necessary to remind our readers of the purpose of this maritime blog. Usually this becomes necessary because of comments we receive and the content of those comments. Just recently we received some beauties and incredibly ignorant - at least from our point of view.
In the header statement we clearly lay out the purpose of this Blog, what we write about and our rules for publishing comments. The Blog is written to express our viewpoint on maritime affairs and on occasions world events. While comments are welcomed this is not a Blog where persons can vent their frustration with life. If things are too much for you - get help - but not from us. We are seafarers and have had to put up with more bovine scatology than non-seafarers can possibly imagine.
If you do not like the content of the Posts we write and opinions expressed - tough ! The answer for you is not to bother reading this Blog, because most likely you are a person who knows little or nothing about seafaring or the historical events we sometimes write about. Writing petty whingeing comments may make you feel better but we just hit 'delete' - they will never see the light of day in NAUTICAL LOG.
You know if you are so frustrated with life and events START YOUR OWN BLOG then interact with whomever pays attention to you. Several of you will know who you are, your comments have been deleted so 'bye and have a nice day. To the other folk, 'Sitemeter' shows we have quite a worldwide readership, thank you for your comments on the Posts and opinions we have written about.
Please remember the seafarers held captive by pirates off Somalia - let us work with maritime interests and others to free them.
