Policy

Now that the site is becoming half famous, unfortunately it means that I have to be a little stricter on user comments as well as on my own posts.

Comments

Comments are moderated. The good news is that generally there is no restriction on coarse language. What I don’t want are comments that will get me sued, since this is a non profit (income) blog. Be particularly careful on comments about people or commercial organisations. Architecture, design or public art, will generally have no restrictions of any type. Go crazy. Obviously racist comments cannot be used. Sexist has a little more leeway on a satirical site, but I as the comedian will have to be the final judge. Comments that disagree with posts or other comments are encouraged, and so far in 2000 plus comments, no-one has really been snarky or offensive in any way. I really want that to continue. Comments have a great vibe. 20% intelligent discussion and insight and 80% slagging off is a really nice balance.

Photos or video.

Generally I am looking for original material that you own or have permission to use. You can link to online material on the suggest page or in comments, but guest posts will generally be of original material unless exceptional or not already widely circulated. Photos should be of things that are visible to the public, unless you have permission to use them. Jumping of fences or invasions or privacy even if very good will regretfully have to be refused. (I have to heed this myself, and have had to delete a few of my overenthusiastic pictures).

Keep up the good work, comments, pictures and suggestions. I love youse guys.

    Listen up Jean- Louis just because you Frenchies rolled over and handed the keys to Adolf on his European Holiday in 1942 without sounding a single shot, it doesnt mean that you can just post this trash anywhere on the www without taking some flak . Take your tolerance, simple happiness, numerous hot bread shops and GO HOME. This is Australia Mate. Get a real name like Shane or Bruce or Wayne….maybe even Neville. Crack a tinnie, abuse your missus, kick the dog, put on a Flannie and sing Working Class man wiht ya mates down the booza.

    Harden up MATE!

    I say, dear chap: Isn’t this a little hard on our French cousins? After all none of us took a stroll down the champs elyses in 1942.

    It must be said, however, that in a police state like WA it would be more useful to point out the obvious flaws that come with the universally observed three monkeys laws: see nothing, say nothing, hear nothing.

    And it really isn’tyonly the so-called conservatives who subscribe to authoritarian views.

  4. Well Peter, what can I say. I was schooled with a strap right across my back right. But it’s all right now, know what I mean? I have to say that now The worst of Perth is the go to site for “body shaping” of the city, I suddenly find it appropiate to take on teh authotitarian views myself. To each according to their needs? Those cunts can play lacrosse on the foreshore. No seriously they can.

    I’ve been lurking and watching this site the way a camouflaged cuttlefish hunts and sneaks under the froth and spume of Gage Roads, watching with it’s glassy cephalopod eyes as a juicy banana prawn drifts into striking distance. Phwoar.
