I have only just now discovered that my email programme was automatically sending all requests for me to approve comments on this blog to my Spam folder. This means I have only today approved comments dating back as far as early 2017. I apologise for unwittingly stifling discussion and debate on this blog and now know to check the comments section on the stats page! I hope this will lead to fruitful discussions here.
Please know that if your comment wasn’t approved it wasn’t because it was unacceptable – only that I didn’t even know it was there!
