Why is my comment not appearing?

All first-time comments go into auto-moderation. Once approved they will appear and all further commentary should appear without delay.

More importantly, in the interests of promoting a more attractive forum for the discussion of politics and culture, the following guidelines are being introduced:

Flaming, “posting insults, often including profanity or other offensive language” will result in the deletion of the relevant comment/ conversation;

Trolling, posting “inflammatory, insincere, digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages…with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses, or manipulating others’ perception” will result in the deletion of relevant comment, while persistent trolling will incur a ban;

Doxxing, the “act of publicly revealing previously private personal information about an individual”, will result in a ban; and

Picking scabs – reviving/ revisiting past incidents from this or previous iterations of Catallaxy that are best left behind, will result in deletion of relevant comment/ conversation.
