I decided to append a comment on the Government’s new blog. I believe it was within the moderation guidelines but it appears that they thought it should not be published. Could it be because I questioned whether it was a cynical exercise to remove the heat that will fuel Saturday’s rallies? I am not sure, read my post and decide for yourself.
If you feel like it, please respond to the poll below.
The options are:
- No – They have published comments after mine
- No – I haven’t waited long enough
- No – I haven’t submitted one.
It’s probably better not to answer the poll if you are going to answer #3. Wait until they have posted articles with timestamps after yours (adjusting your time to AEDT time).
If you have submitted a comment which wasn’t published, post either the comment or a link to it here. If you didn’t keep a copy, please indicate this and give a precis of the argument [ no original works here please! ]. Please include the last Received: header (in gmail Show Original, other mail readers have a show headers feature) to prove that you submitted a comment.

I reserve the right to remove any comment that does not meet the Government’s own moderation guidelines.
Update: 11 December 2008, 12:57. My followup comment, but not the original, has been published.
