It is with some regret that we have decided to remove the rating facility underneath postings. We have had to do this because in recent weeks it has become obvious that a small number of visitors have been abusing the system in order to undermine particular contributors they have some grudge against, or, as in one recent incident, rating a posting “poor” to make a political statement.
On a separate matter, we have also had some issues with negative comments being left anonymously. Therefore, in future any negative comment posted anonymously will be deleted. We are of the view that those who wish to express negative criticism of a posting or studio, should at least identify themselves. Visitors who do not have a Google or WordPress account can use the Name/URL option in the drop down menu beneath the comment field in order to confirm their name when commenting.
General and positive comments and observations can still be made anonymously if visitors so wish.
