Well I can certainly tick more than 5, almost all of them in fact. Therefore, I must be insane!

@Torrance

Fair point about the need for a spam filter, and you're right that no spam filter is perfect.

>> You missed our policy of removing sexist, racist, or homophobic comments, etc. We remove those because we don't agree with the views they express. <<

I know you do. I agree with the insertion of that clause into the Editorial Policy because it was explained that it would only be used to remove abusive comments, which had no content that contributed...

With regional authorities each battling for their own rights in the GMO debate our country has effectively been split into manageable segments.
